Your passageway to real worth...
On behalf of the Inspire Ministry Team, I want to thank you for joining us on this journey to discover your SHAPE. Our goal is to help you or your small group Win in life.  We are excited about you reaching your full potential and serving in a ministry that fully utilizes your gifts.

We reach our goal by inspiring every member of the Celebration Church family to decide to begin serving, take the time to discover their God-given SHAPE, and direct this SHAPE for God's glory. In addition, we strive to inspire every small group to recognize the ministry needs within their group. We will also help the group realize their strengths so that they can respond to ministry opportunities together.

On this website you will notice several tools to help you maximize your serving journey as you prepare to discover the ministry God has for you!


"Energizing Christ followers to become ministry contributors."
"Each one should use whatever gift(s) he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's Grace in its various forms." I Peter 4:10

"Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others."

- Philippians 2:4
The Inspire MInistry invokes service by inventing strategies that invite people to serve and invest in their God-given SHAPE.
