Four stories of destiny development from our Destiny by Design alumni.
Story 1 is about a pastor who took the course after being "released" to pursue his faith elsewhere from a church that no longer wanted him there in ministry. It had come to light that the minister in question had differing beliefs about God moving personally in people's lives.
He actually used his Destiny by Design portfolio project as part of his interview process before moving to serve at a new church that welcomed and valued his views on God's personal connection.
Story 2 is from a woman who thought her passion was to become a speaker on a circuit. When she realized the motivation under the desire was to bring refreshing to people, her dream shifted to a goal of launching a non-profit that would serve ministers and front-line givers, like health care professionals or first responders, by providing respite places. It's a big vision that will be her ultimate contribution.
Story 3 has a main character who is a successful executive nearing retirement that wanted to give the gift of time to a worthy cause. He was considering going on mission trips to help build homes in underprivileged locations.
Destiny by Design helped him recognize his CEO skills could be used on the board of a local mission, where he gives the gift of time by organizing fundraisers, helping with project management and making a difference by offering affordabe housing and breaking the cycle of dependence. (Turns out he doesn't have carpentry skills anyway...)
Story 4 is of a college student who was on track to becoming a teacher. Her parents really wanted her to have a stable career. She had always thought this was the path she was supposed to be on and never really questioned it. Until she took Destiny by Design. When she recognized the call of God on her life for vocational ministry, she moved toward the future God had put in her heart. It was a faith move and not without costs, but that was nearly 10 years ago and she is so grateful for the trajectory of her life now!
