    Do you have a vision statement for your life? Do you have a mission or vision for your Ministry or Business? If not, this mini-course will guide you in the process of creating a statement. If you do have a vision, have you written it down and committed to it? Professor Steve Elzinga will guide you in assessing your values, personality, gifts, and more - all important ingredients in a Life Vision. 

    1. Learn the reasons why a Vision Statement is impactful for your life. 
    2. Understand what a Vision Statement contains and why. 
    3. Discern your values and how they impact your life vision. 
    4. Gain an understanding of your personality traits. 
    5. Learn about spiritual, natural, and gained gifts - what they might be and how they can serve your life vision. 
    6. Reflection on life experiences, current responsibilities, and opportunities. 
    7. Guidance and direction in composing a Vision Statement.

      Reflection Questions: 

      1. Share a little bit about your personality. How do some of these traits connect to your life vision? Do they strengthen you or hold you back?

      2. What are your spiritual gifts? Do you have trouble discerning what your spiritual gifts are? 

      3. What are some of your natural gifts? What about the gifts you have worked at? How do you use these gifts to bless others?
