Welcome to the Nazarene Strengths Institute

It is the vision of the NSI to partner with local congregations and educational institutions; helping members and students identify, understand, develop, and express what they do best in ministry and service.

Why Strengths?

You are a unique expression of your loving Creator. To accept this is a deeply humbling recognition that you are God’s very special work of art, placed here for a purpose.

Although we tend to focus on – What am I to do? We need to give more attention to – How have I been shaped?  That’s where your God-given talents come in, and that’s where the Nazarene Strengths Institute can help!

Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.   – Gal 6:4-5 (Msg)


What We Do and Why

The goal of the Nazarene Strengths Institute is to partner with districts, churches, and educational institutions to develop strengths-based individuals,  teams, congregations, and universities.   We accomplish this by offering faith-based strengths events that focus on each individual’s (or team’s) unique God-given talents.  Gallup Strengths-based Faith

 Our faculty and leadership are comprised of Gallup-trained and certified individuals who see spreading the word about strengths as their personal mission.  These individuals utilize Gallup and NSI tools to develop strengths in the church, deepen discipleship, and garner missional engagement.

Our work focuses on:

  • Building congregational engagement through understanding and acceptance of others unique God-given gifts
  • Providing a solution before pastoral burnout
  • Understanding “right fit” and pastoral expectations upfront
  • Developing strong leadership teams
