Living Your Strengths


Have you ever wondered what God has planned for your life, or how you can become the best version of yourself?

What if we started doing more of what we are good at doing, and using our limited time and energy to develop our natural talents into strengths?

What if you could find a career or ministry that utilizes your unique God-given talents?

Living Your Strengths is a ministry designed to help adults maximize their God-given talents in all aspects of life – personal, professional, and spiritual.

God made each of us on purpose and for a purpose, and he gave each of us a unique set of talents to help us to achieve that purpose.  It is in God’s plan that some of us are problem solvers and doers, some are great listeners, some are more influential, and others are great thinkers.  Who did God plan for YOU to be?

See below for opportunities to explore Living Your Strengths at St. John Neumann.  There are no prerequisites, except to take the assessment and discover your Top Five.  The ministry uses Gallup’s CliftonStrengths®, an online assessment tool, as the starting point. The  Top Five CliftonStrengths Access is currently priced at $19.99 on the website, or you can purchase the book which includes a code to take the online assessment.

Choose this is you would like to take your assessment online and access all your materials on the website.


Choose this if you prefer to have a book. The access code for the online assessment will be in the back.


Strengths Introduction is a three-hour session to help participants begin to discover their God-given talents. It’s a “get your feet wet” top-line introduction to Living Your Strengths. Taking the CliftonStrengths assessment (see above) is required to participate.

Strengths Introduction Workshops are typically scheduled at the beginning of each semester.
Stay tuned for details.



Sign up at the Introduction Workshop.

Strengths Exploration is a small-group program designed to help you discover your God-given talents and begin to shift your focus away from fixing your weaknesses. Participants learn to start spending time and energy on doing more of what they are good at doing.  With the guidance of trained facilitators, groups begin by exploring each individual’s CliftonStrengths top talent themes—their regular patterns of behavior—and determine how to apply these talents in their personal, professional and spiritual lives to fulfill God’s purpose for each. These positive and uplifting sessions meet weekly for 90-minutes for six weeks.

Currently scheduled Exploration Groups:

Monday Evenings, Oct 21-Nov25, 7-8:30pm, SJN Pastoral Center Room 105
