Life Calling

Purpose Filled Students

An inspiring semester long curriculum helping students identify their purpose, become equipped to make life decisions, and lead change in the world. 

Live according to God's Word

Most high school students graduate without having ever thought very deeply about their unique design and how that should translate into their God-given calling for their career and life.

The Life Calling Model consists of three basic components:

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.

The Life Calling Curriculum is built on the scholarly work of Dr. Bill Millard and has been taught to nearly 9,000 students over the past decade. 


Introduction to Life Calling introduces students to a framework for understanding their lives through the concept of purpose and calling. It enables them to develop tools that will help them make decisions in life consistent with this life calling and purpose.



Scott Harsh, Greater Atlanta Christian School

"Our students who have taken Introduction to Life Calling are more confident in their identity, more aware of their purpose, and better equipped to make decisions about their future. For GAC, this is not an “add on” program. Life calling is so much bigger than a stand-alone course."

Carl Martinez, Whittier Christian High School

"I would strongly encourage Christian schools to implement Life Calling into their curriculum because I know first-hand through student, parent, and teacher feedback that this course is highly effective in having an extremely important conversation with students and God’s call on their lives."

Buddy Winn, Maranatha Christian School

"Watching students learn to value their self-worth based on their individual uniqueness as well as the individuality and diversity of others was very rewarding."
