The 5 steps toward discerning your direction and creating your personal calling statement

BIBLICAL PURPOSE

Why am I here?

What is your destiny? God has shaped and prepared each of us to play a unique role at this point in time that will bring glory to God, share the grace of God, and extend the reign of God in specific ways.

CORE VALUES

Who has God created and shaped me to be?

Our core values are born out of lessons we have learned through experiences—both good and bad—and then built into our lives. Core values are our “non-negotiables”—things that we will not ignore and won’t abandon. 

MOTIVATING VISION

What is God preparing me to be and do?

As you respond to what God shows you and begin to live into God’s preferred future, God’s vision for your life becomes more vivid and real.

PERSONAL CALLING

How do I understand my personal calling as a follower of Jesus Christ?

Discerning your biblical purpose, core values, and motivating vision has prepared you to write your personal calling statement. This statement will help you live a life of personal satisfaction while also advancing God’s purposes on earth.

LIVING IT OUT

Which relationships help me stay faithful to God's calling in my life?

Intentional relationships with others play an important role in helping you live out your calling.
