Passions Assessment

In order to computerize passions, we had to choose "passion code words" that describe the passions of the particular volunteer positions available here at Grace. Many volunteer positions contain five or even more "passion code words" as various aspects of the ministry or position might fulfill different passions.

There are three different categories of passion code words. The INTERESTS, the AGE AND GENDER GROUPS and the STATUS GROUPS. Everyone should choose the top three or four from the INTEREST GROUPS. However, the AGE AND GENDER and the STATUS GROUP codes should ONLY be chosen IF you want to work with only that specific age, gender or status group.

The INTERESTS "passion code words" we use are listed first. Go through the list, carefully reading the description of EACH code word. Prioritize the top three (no more than four) words that best apply to your own unique passion statement. Remember that passion is something that is of utmost importance to you.

INTERESTS

Select the top three "interest" code words in importance to you and that best fit your passion statement.
