Workshops and Programs

The Journey Series, made up of the courses listed below, is a set of sequential workshops designed to help you find, follow and fulfill God's purpose and plan for you.

1. THE VESSEL: Understanding Your Divine Design  
Who am I? In this workshop you will answer this question by exploring your unique design including identification of your personal values, spiritual gifts, natural talents and personality.

2. THE CHARTER: Defining Your Personal Mission Statement
Why am I here? This question is answered in the form of a written mission statement - a single sentence summarizing your unique life purpose. Your clearly defined mission will bring more clarity and meaning to your past, present and future. 

3. THE PROMISED LAND: Discovering God's Vision for You  
Where am I going? Even though no one can know their future in it's entirety, there are many clues revealed that are often overlooked. This workshop will guide you through an intentional process to discover these clues, giving you direction, inspiration and a vibrant life vision!

4. THE CROSSING: Turning Your Vision into Action  

How do I get there?  Taking definite actions to plan and pursue your vision is what distinguishes a wish from a dream. Many wish, but few live their dream. This workshop is designed to help you set reasonable goals, make specific plans and take tangible steps towards living your mission and fulfilling your vision.

To help you align your career with your life mission and vision, we offer Career Team.

CAREER TEAM: Finding a More Fulfilling Work Life

A Career Team is a group of six people, each seeking a more fulfilling work life, joined together by a certified IDAK career counselor for six sessions to assist participants in the identification of their ideal work environments, industries, careers, jobs & duties.  If you are in a career, but unsure if it is right for you, are dissatisfied with your job, but aren’t sure what to do, feel you’re still trying to figure out what you want to do and yearn for a more meaningful work life that’s the right fit for you, then a Career Team is for you!
