Discover Who You Are with FPCN

Welcome to the FPC Northshore SHAPE Assessment!

At First Presbyterian Church Northshore, we believe God has made you for a purpose! Finding and fulfilling your God-given purpose is one of the greatest discoveries you will make in life. This online SHAPE process is a tool to help you discern your unique SHAPE and empower you to connect in a meaningful place of service. The Bible tells us, "We are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10

What's SHAPE?
SHAPE stands for Spiritual Gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, and Experience. Although there are many paths to discovering your best place of service, the online SHAPE assessment is one way to learn more about the role you can play in God’s grand story!
