  17. 17. Let’s practice applying How would you recruit the following types of people to be on your team to accomplish a task? D group: How do you enlist an “S”? i group: How do you enlist a “C”? S group: How do you enlist an “D”? C group: How do you enlist an “i”? © J.

  20. 20. Final Thoughts No single style is “better” or “worse” than the others. Everyone’s mix of behavioral tendencies contains both strengths and weaknesses. Most gravitate towards roles that fit our personalities. We may struggle in roles where our temperaments are tested in an ongoing way. © J. Allen Thompson, International Church Planting Center
  21. 21. Final Thoughts Learn to thank God for the distinctive way that He has made you to fit and serve the church and the city around you! Don’t let your personality control you, (e.g. “that’s just the way I am…”) Instead let God control your personality (i.e. let Him fill/control you with His Spirit) © J. Allen Thompson, International Church Planting Center
