PLACE Curriculum Have you ever wondered about your place in ministry? ?Finding Your PLACE in Ministry? is a Bible based curriculum developed by Rev. Jay McSwain that explores individual gifts/talents and points us toward realizing His purpose for our lives. Although pastors and ministry leaders may have completed one or more of these assessments in previous studies, this class differs in two important ways. One, the relationship between the five aspects is explored. Two, a consultation/prayer component concludes the process. Finding Your PLACE in Ministry is an extremely important self-discovery process.
