Development of your unique map.
Once you have completed Phase I: Heart of a Warrior you are ready for Phase II: Focus of a Warrior.
The first journey, called Heart of a Warrior, provides an internal compass that will help us find our way. The objective of the first journey is to calibrate the heart of a man with the heart of God. Biblically informed and centered beliefs, values, worldview, and motives are aligned with God’s purposes and intentions and provide a foundational basis for living our lives in bold relief.
The second journey, called Focus of a Warrior, provides a map towards our pre-ordained destiny. It gives us a sense of purpose, direction, and focus. Together, the compass and the map will help us find our way through life with intentionality and in accordance with God's purposes for our lives--purposes that give our lives meaning and significance because they align with His plan He determined before we ever came to be.
The first journey calibrates the heart of a man with the heart of God. Biblically informed and centered beliefs, values, worldview, and motives are aligned with God’s purposes and intentions and provide a foundational basis for living our lives in bold relief. The second journey provides a roadmap towards our pre-ordained destiny. It gives us a sense of purpose, direction, and focus.
Many of us haven't got a clue about how God has wired us or what His purposes are for each of us. Would it surprise you to know that God's purposes for you were established before you were born, His unique and specific purposes for you? This journey is primarily for men who have completed Phase I and will help you live a focused life. Beginning with an all-out commitment to Him, a focused life is a life dedicated to exclusively carrying out God=s unique purposes through it by identifying the focal issues which allow an increasing prioritization of life=s activities around these issues resulting in a satisfying life of being and doing.
These focal issues include …
These issues will be summarized in a Personal Life Mandate, the trajectory to which we should direct our lives. The PLM helps a follower of Christ focus their ministry and service to the kingdom. It provides direction without determining destination. God wants us to engage the journey and leave the destination to Him. When we operate within our God-inspired trajectory we live a life of meaning and significance. Our lives move from ‘shotgun’ to ‘laser beam.’
In Phase II the purpose for our time together is simply this: to gain a biblically informed perspective of our past, to bring clear focus to God=s design for our life and then to implement a plan to intentionally and proactively fulfill our discovered destiny. This purpose will be realized when the following objectives have been met.
The journey will take 9 to 12 months depending on response and scope of activities. Each participant will be required to complete assignments in advance of each bi-weekly meeting. Each meeting will include two hours of interaction and may be augmented by additional materials designed to illustrate the concepts more clearly and concisely.
Two primary workbooks will be utilized with the possibility of a third if time permits and there is evidence of interest
Workbook # 1: Perspective
This resource will help the participant recognize God’s unique shaping of their lives. Understanding how God has worked in our past provides “signposts” for our journey into the future. This self-discovery workbook includes four steps.
Workbook # 2: Focus
This resource will help the participant clarify their personal calling and unique contribution to the Kingdom of God. It also assists the participant in the integration of the personal calling into his day-to-day journey. This self-discovery workbook includes four steps.
Workbook # 3: Mentoring (Optional)
This resource will help the participant recognize the resources God has placed around them to help them accomplish their personal calling and mission in life. To finish well we must ask others to assist us in the journey—they are called mentors. This self-discovery workbook includes four steps.
There are four requirements of every participant …
1. Completion of Phase I – Heart of a Warrior Preferred
It is hard to know your wiring (trajectory) if your heart has not first been aligned with and calibrated to God’s heart.
2. Dedicated Commitment
3. Full Participation
4. Honest Accountability
