The Ministry Profile Tab is a powerful tool for tracking your congregation's gifts, abilities and more. The profile is based on Purpose Driven Life’s S.H.A.P.E. (Spiritual gifts, Heart/Desire for service, Abilities and talents, Personality, and Experiences). You may use as many or as few of these five items as you want in developing the ministry profiles of your congregation.
Tip: There are many default selections to choose from in each list. These selections can easily be edited, and new entries created, by double-clicking on the blue-text.
When the Ministry Profile tab is selected, the "SHAPE Profile Reports" button will appear on the toolbar. This will enable you to print ministry profiles on everyone in your congregation, or select certain individuals to print profiles for. You can also print a blank ministry profile sheet based on your entries in the Heart for Ministry and Abilities sections of the Ministry Profile Tab. Hint: After you've set up the ministries and other SHAPE entries that match your church, you can print a "ministry survey" to give your congregation to complete and return. To do this, click "ministry profile reports" on the toolbar (this button appears on the toolbar when the SHAPE tab is selected). Choose "Print a blank ministry profile survey sheet" and click the preview report button:
This survey includes all the entries from A and H sections of the SHAPE profile tab. This means you can change, edit or add your own entries for the survey by editing the entries on the SHAPE profile tab (Just double-click on the blue text in each section to add or edit the entries). When you are previewing the Ministry Survey, click on the Export button on the toolbar to export the entire SHAPE profile in order to create your own custom survey.
