|Introduction to Life Calling|
Starting in 2008, the course, Introduction to Life Calling, has made it possible for Christian high schools around the U.S. to share the life-transforming principles of purpose and calling with their students. In that time nearly 9,000 high school students have started on a journey to understand and live out their unique life calling. Now through a partnership with Skyepack, it is available for homeschools as well.
Introduction to Life Calling is built on the work of Dr. Bill Millard and incorporates the Life Calling Model into a curriculum that is rich in Biblical principles, research-based concepts, and practical activities designed for student engagement. This course enables high school students to find an overriding purpose for their lives, equips them to make life decisions based on this purpose, and empowers them to develop this purpose into world-changing leadership! In high schools, teachers who have been trained and certified to teach this course then have the opportunity to present this inspiring curriculum to their students. In homeschools, an online curriculum is used to bring the dynamics of this course to individual students.

FOR HIGH SCHOOLS
INTRODUCTION TO LIFE CALLING OVERVIEW
Introduction to Life Calling introduces students to a framework for understanding their lives through the concept of purpose and calling. It enables them to develop tools that will help them make decisions in life consistent with this life calling and purpose.
Based on Dr. Bill Millard’s Life Calling Model, the curriculum contains three basic components: Foundational Values, Unique Design, and Personal Mission. Through the exploration of these components students will begin to have a better sense of what they believe, what their strengths are, what they are passionate about, and more.
Foundational Values: What a person believes and values at the very core of their life will guide and direct what they think and how they behave. Foundation Values explores the ideas behind one’s faith, character, and service. These elements come alive when understood in the context of a Biblical worldview.
Unique Design: Psalm 139 encourages us that God was involved in the creation of our lives from the very beginning. As developed through the curriculum, our uniqueness is best understood through a multifaceted look at our strengths, experiences, and passions.
Personal Mission: This component of the curriculum helps each individual to begin to understand what steps are necessary to lead them to a fulfilling, God-honoring life. This is possible as a student discovers the needs of the world and how those needs interact with their own vision of how to influence their world. Ultimately, this self-discovery leads to action.
This is a far more effective approach to choosing majors and making other decisions for college and beyond than most typical “career counseling” which many times focuses primarily on self-centered interests. Rather than focusing just on an individual’s potential in a career, this course offers the opportunity to look at the person holistically, with the Word of God at the center.
