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 homeschools, an online curriculum is used to bring the dynamics of this course to individual students.
The dymanic online platform includes readings, instructive videos, interactive activities, assess to informational assessments, and much more! The course is designed to target all learning types with multiple learning inputs and highly interactive material. Our students love not just reading about life calling, but jumping in working through the concepts they learn about.
Introduction to Life Calling is intended for use by Christian schools and families. The coursework is founded in the understanding that we understanding calling because God is our caller. 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.
