The gifts of the Spirit are to be used by individuals in the church.

The gifts of the Spirit are available to, and to be used by, all believers, not just your pastor or elders. They flow from God’s grace and their use should be motivated by love. As such, they do not place you on a higher spiritual plane than other believers. The gifts of the Spirit show forth the glory of God; you are merely a willing channel through which God may bless His church.
