There is no joy so complete as knowing who you are -- who God has made you to be and what your basic giftings and drives are. The goal of this book is to get you effectively functioning in roles which allow you to adequately express your heart motivations and gifts. The fulfillment you experience when you function in your gifts and calling is a joy almost beyond belief.

"Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before obscure men." (Prov. 22:29)

What Are Successful Companies and Churches Doing?

The most successful corporations of today are doing something unique: New employees are given a battery of personality and skill-level profiles to discover their temperament, talents, skills, and interests. With this information, the individual is then fitted into the job best suited to use his individual desires and gifts. For years I have marveled at this, realizing that these employees will perform to their greatest capacity when they work for such companies. They will be so glad to have found a niche in life for which they are perfectly suited and in which they are fulfilled that they will give one hundred and fifty percent and do so joyfully, while receiving a blessing in return. Wouldn't it be nice if the Church could do the same thing, if it, too, tested all newcomers and placed them in a position that most perfectly suited their personality, their dreams, their talents, and their maturity level?

What would happen to a church that put everyone to work on the proper level of his gifting and maturity, and in the area of his heart motivation? Would it be right for us to anticipate explosive growth?

What's in the book Gifted to Succeed?

We have the solution for such progressive churches. In the book Gifted to Succeed you will find a battery of a dozen different profiles that will examine everything from heart motivation to Bible knowledge to commitment level. After completing the profiles and working with a consultant, you will be able to place the new attendee in the area of ministry in your church that is most perfectly suited to his skills. The church wins, the church member wins, and the kingdom of God wins -- a triple win situation!

The Bible says that out of the heart flow the issues of life. So you will explore the heart motivations God has placed within you and learn how to capitalize on them. You will also learn that to truly succeed, you will need input from other people, specifically those with other heart motivations. It is by seeking out and honoring the counsel which comes from people who see things differently from you and whose heart motivations complement yours that you become complete and mature and successful.

God lists five different functions within the body of Christ, and promises that by receiving from all five ministries (i.e. people with five different heart motivations), we can come to maturity (Eph. 4:7-13)! Wow! What an awesome promise. So what are the five heart motivations which we need to seek out and incorporate into a wise decision-making paradigm? They are:

  • a heart for inspirational creativity
  • a heart for the harvest
  • a heart for people
  • a heart for truth
  • a heart for the whole

How to Get the Most from the Gifted to Succeed Training

We recommend that every family, small group, church and Christian company take their people through these 12 profiles and this training manual. Each participate in the group will need his own copy of Gifted to Succeed, so they can complete the various profiles and meditate on the training that goes with them. This allows everyone to become aware of the many gifts and talents in themselves and in the people God has placed around them. This will encourage them to function in their own area of giftedness and to position people in roles and situations where their gifts and talents can shine forth. This applies to your children, your spouse, your co-workers and elders within the church.

You will also learn to seek out counselors with gifts and talents that complement yours and in so doing, you will become more successful in all you put your hand to. You will learn how to function as part of a body (i. e. the body of Christ), rather than on your own. This helps you to participate in God's plan and God's provision for your life. You will prosper more than you ever dreamed possible through a multi-gifted, well-fitted team. Your joy will be overflowing.

The Biblical Basis of Heart Motivations 

The Virkler Grid -- A Comparative Analysis of the Foundational Offices of Ephesians 4:11 

The reason I'm writing, Mark, is to congratulate you for your excellent work in the “Fivefold Ministry Summary.”  This is not only brilliant, but it is extremely useful….

In my opinion, this should have a wide circulation. How about making a free-standing version of it with the title “The Virkler Grid” and with a subtitle “A Comparative Analysis of the Foundational Offices of Ephesians 4:11?”
 
I would expect that you will see it popping up all over the place since there is nothing else like it.  The Virkler Grid could end up being a standard tool for the whole apostolic movement in years to come.

Take It to the Next Level

To ensure that this message transforms your life, we offer you four options. Any of these choices will assist you in internalizing this teaching, helping you to be a doer of the word and not a hearer only (James 1:22) and allowing you to produce a bountiful harvest in your life.

Opportunity 1 – Host a home or church group


This home group in Slovakia shows the excitement of learning to hear God's voice together!

We learn more quickly if we are surrounded by others who are seeking to master the same skill. Pray and ask God who you know who might want to grow in this truth also and open your home to them for 10-12 weekly sessions (or host a small group in your church). We provide several resources to help you present this powerfully and effectively in a group setting, including DVDs and application activities. Experience the joy of cultivating skills together with a group of friends! Discover how to create and post your group…

Opportunity 2 – Hire a Personal Spiritual Trainer to coach you

 
  

Coaching or discipling is the method Jesus used to train the twelve disciples.

When you team up with someone ahead of you in an area to mentor you, and you share your questions and steps of growth with them, receiving their counsel in return, you ascend more quickly into mastery in that area. We have trained coaches who have mastered this topic who will commit to working with you for a 90-day period.

Opportunity 3 – Take this as a college course from home

Christian Leadership University

Earn college credit while being apprenticed to mastery in this area! This topic is available as a course which you can take from your home through the distance learning program offered at Christian Leadership University. You may enroll in this course as a lifelong learner or apply it toward an Associate, Bachelor, Master or Doctoral degree.

Opportunity 4 – Host a seminar for your community

 
  

Transform your church and region by hosting a weekend seminar with an anointed trainer, where an impartation is released by the Holy Spirit into your community. Mark Virkler and others are available to be scheduled.

A new book has just been released that accompanies this workbook: Click here for Hearing God Through Your Dreams by Charity Kayembe and Mark Virkler (featured on Sid Roth's "It's Supernatural", with over half a million views just on YouTube).


Do you often wake up feeling there was a significant message in your dream, but you’re just not sure what it is? Like Daniel and Joseph, do you long to be able to help others understand their own dreams and win them to Christ as you explain His night messages to them? Wouldn't it be nice if you could receive mid-course corrections from the Lord while you sleep? Do you wish you could be receiving divine inspiration, creative solutions to problems, and direction from the Lord during that third of your life that you’re “just” sleeping?

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
