Definition of Purpose:
‘The reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.’
The above definition highlights a core principle for this course – purpose is not decided, it is discovered. Through our time together we are trying to discover (or perhaps rediscover) what our creator’s purpose for the world is, and what our creator created us for.
Who is this course for...
The Purpose Discovery course is for people who:
• Want to discover God’s purposes for the world and how their own purposes and calling fit with God’s purposes.
• Are at a transition point in life and looking for guidance about what to do in the next phase of life
• Want to develop greater meaning in what they do
• Want to learn to connect what they do with their faith
By the end of this course, you should have a clearer understanding of your own purpose, and a framework and some tools to help you start to align your roles and behaviours with that purpose. It’s not a one-off process. What we’re teaching here is a way of life, a set of practices that you will use over-and-over-again, until they become intuitive.
Let’s be clear – this process of aligning our lives with God’s purposes is not easy, but it is worthwhile. It invites us to embody the way of Jesus in a world where that way of life is sometimes pretty challenging.
Because it’s not easy, we’d like to invite you to be part of our Seed community. We’re a community of practise and a community of purpose. We’re people who are committed to wrestling and creating together. Our prayer is that God will use us to help catalyse a movement of Christians creating purposeful change in society – for God’s glory.
We encourage you to join us on this journey of discovering your purpose- you won't regret it!
