Four Imperatives for Clarifying Your Calling

Dave Rhodes adapts the well-known tool to help you build a personal vision frame

December 2, 2016

As pastor of discipleship and movement initiatives at Grace Fellowship Church in Atlanta, and a collaborative partner with Younique, Dave Rhodes helps people identify and clarify their personal calling. This, he says, is the key to a full life in Christ.

How can you begin to move from confusion to clarity in your personal calling? How can you lead a church that helps people understand and embrace their core identity? In this podcast from Exponential East 2016, Dave Rhodes and the Younique team say that the answer to both questions lies in recognizing four imperatives you and those you lead will need to embrace along the way to stunning clarity.

“What is the one thing,” Rhodes asks, “that you have been put on this earth for … in such a way that it gives you a lens for everything?”

Key Takeaways:

  • Why clarifying and aligning your personal calling are paramount to discovering who you were created to be
  • Simple tools to help you bring clarity to the process
  • Four simple imperatives for building a personal “vision frame”
  • Why leaders can take a cue from Adam and learn how how to create culture

The Younique team will be teaching on personal calling at Exponential East 2017, which will include an entire workshop track devoted to finding your personal calling and helping others discover theirs.
