Community and Coaching


Engage Your Strengths

Engage Your Strengths blends Gallup’s popular StrengthsFinder® assessment and coaching process with biblical foundations and extended Scripture engagement. EYS builds on the belief that everyone has God-given talents that become strengths when coupled with skills and knowledge. As men and women refine and practice their strengths they will be equipped to consistently achieve excellence and maximize their God-given talents. The goal is to build personal resilience in Men/Women and their Families by enabling them to live their strengths and engage God’s Word daily. In the long run this will shape the culture and help keep Military & Faith communities strong. This program helps leaders identify those strengths. Each chaplain/leader receives a personalized strengths discovery report with an action plan for applying their strengths and a summary of the biblical underpinnings of strengths with a guide for more in-depth Scripture engagement.

“I am thrilled that Gallup’s Faith Practice and the American Bible Society are honoring and partnering with chaplains who have faithfully served our nation in the U.S. military. I have always been intrigued with the impact that one can have if they live their lives leveraging the strengths that God has given them. I am equally convinced that engagement in Scripture is the key to being truly satisfied with life – even in the tough times. I am fascinated that Armed Services Ministry is providing them with a strengths-based program that will help them also experience the life-changing message of God’s Word. Imagine the impact this will have on our nation!”
— George Gallup, Jr., chairman of the George H. Gallup International Institute

“ABS provides spiritual resources to military chaplains to help serve the service members and their families. Gallup will help them create a custom version of a Strengths and Scripture Engagement workbook and training that will be utilized to help chaplains better address both Emotional and Spiritual Fitness. Gallup and ABS will literally help save the lives of some of the men and women who risk their lives to keep us safe.”
— Jim Clifton, Gallup CEO

“For four straight years, U.S. Army Chaplains (along with Air Force, Navy, Marine, & Coast Guard Chaplains) were trained with Engage Your Strengths. ASM made countless trips to the United States Army Chaplain Center and School and the Armed Forces Chaplaincy Center (AFCC) to facilitate this valuable training program. I was inspired by their passion. It seemed that everywhere I traveled to visit our Unit Ministry Teams and Soldiers – whether in United States Forces-Europe, U.S. Pacific Command, or the myriad of camps, posts, or stations in the continental United States, they were there training Chaplains, leaders, and family members to engage and live out their God-given strengths.”
– Douglas L. Carver, Chaplain (Major General) United States Army, Retired

The Armed Services Ministries

The Armed Services Ministry believes that the U.S. Military is the best in the world. Today ASM offers timely and ready access to God’s Word to give them direction, hope, courage, peace, and comfort. We exist to help meet the critical spiritual needs of our nation’s military, providing customized Scripture resources and programs for the whole life of our actively-deployed men and women in uniform and their families. From 1817 through the present conflicts, we have delivered nearly 60 million free Bible resources to America’s Armed Forces, over two million New Testaments since 9/11 and today the pace increases.
