Episode 3: 5-Fold Spiritual Gifts and Raising Missional Kids

In Ephesians 4, the Apostle Paul told the church in Ephesus that Christ himself gives the church “apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.” These are what many call “The 5-Fold Spiritual Gifts,” and many believe that every believer has been given one of these gifts for the purpose of serving the church and building unity within it.

We often think of spiritual gifting being only for adults, but Caren Hunter, who is back with us for another episode, believes that these gifts are manifested even in children – and she and her husband are serious about identifying them and helping them grow in their own four kids.
