We believe that God has intentionally designed a specific purpose for every single person. How do we, as pastors and spiritual leaders, help others discover their calling? How do we discern what our calling looks like in a new season of life? What steps do we take to live out our calling once we’ve articulated it?

These books and resources are great starting points for you or those that you are guiding through the discovery process.

Find Your Place: Locating Your Calling Through Your Gifts, Passions, and Story

by Rob Wegner & Brian Phipps

“Every person has been designed by God for one-of-a-kind Masterpiece Mission, what most people refer to as personal calling or personal purpose. Everyone needs to be able to name what God has put them on the earth to do. Most people never do. The Find Your Placebook will help followers of Jesus locate three signals that will help people discern their personal calling: their Gifts, their Passions, and their Story, and help them take meaningful next steps to engage that calling.”
