“So what do you do? What do you want to be when you grow up? What’s your major?”…Common questions that we all receive from people wanting to know what we are doing with our lives. While these questions are good, they are not the best to be asked. The “end goal” of life is far bigger and more significant than the career paths we choose. For the believer, gaining a solid 9 to 5 job with good benefits is, at most, only part of the equation. The rest is wrapped up in the specific calling that God has given you individually and how that helps fulfill the Great Commission of Matthew 28. At the Kanakuk Institute, our students spend time in prayer, discovering and articulating their life’s calling into a Vision Statement. It is one thing to have a mental “understanding” of your purpose but having to put into words what you are are called to do, why you want to pursue that, and how you would like to accomplish your calling provides you with a reference point or a navigation tool for the rest of your life. Several times through your Institute year, we have our students revisit their Vision Statement to evaluate their future direction. Keeping a close pulse on your purpose helps you intentionally pursue your calling while avoiding distractions along the way.
Through the Vision Statement project, not only will you be able to answer “What do you want to do in life?” but, more importantly, “Who do you want to be and what is your calling in life?” Confident, purposeful living is beneficial to both ministries and businesses alike.
