For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...
One of Castine's core values is serving inside and out. To that end, we want to help you discover your gifts, to grow in your gifts, and plug you in to serving with those gifts.
Learn How God has Gifted You
One of our values at Castine Church is to cultivate God's talents in our ministry. So we do our best to help you to find out your gifts and then help you serve into those gifts wherever we can. We do this through a system called PLACE. PLACE helps you learn who God created you to be in 5 different categories.
You'll learn about your personality types and how they work together, the things you should lean in to and the things you should watch out for.
Learning Spiritual Gifts
You'll learn about your specific spiritual gifts that God has given you to use to advance His kingdom.
We help you to learn about and catalog the abilities that you have so that we can work to use those things in ministry.
We help you to determine the things that you are really passionate about so that combined with your personality and spiritual gifts we can connect you to those things.
We help you connect all of who God has made you to be with your life experiences to help you serve others inside and out.
Serve in our church
Use your unique gifts to help build the Kingdom.
If you've discovered your gifts with us or know where your gifts and passions are, you can let us know where you're interested in serving now!
