J1:Session 2

Coach GuideJ1:Session 2

Purpose/Objective

To give an overview of the three component pieces to helping someone find their sweet spot of calling (Passion, Ability, Context), setting a trajectory for the rest of Journey 1.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: “The goal of discipleship is to be like Jesus if he were you – with your family, community, 9 to 5, circumstances, strengths and limitations” – Dallas Willard.

  • Lay out the three components of Passion, Ability and Context, giving examples of each of them.
    – Passion: Fan it – What Fuels Me the Most?
    – Ability: Focus it – What can I do the Best?
    – Context: Find it – Where is my Impact the Greatest?
  • This tool is used to help us discover the one thing we must do and why we do it.
  • Give a quick overview of how they will be walking through each of the three circles throughout Journey 1 and discovering their unique design in the convergence of all 3.

Purpose/Objective

To give an overview of the various components that will contribute to their Passion Circle, allowing them to see the steps they are about to take and how it connects to the whole.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Every passion can be found somewhere, at some point in your story. You don’t randomly get a passion.

  • We will be mining out the participants narrative to help them mine out their passions.
  • Highlight the main question we are asking in Passion Circle: “What Fuels Me the Most?”

Context-Specific Tips

  • Accelerator

Purpose/Objective

Help participants map out the high points and hard times over the course of their life in a visual manner, while beginning the process of breaking down their narrative into chapters.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: If you don’t interpret your story, your past will determine your future. If you DO interpret your story, your past can fuel your future.

  • Give people 7 minutes to write out their list of top 10 high points and hard times on the Hinge Moments worksheet.
  • Once everyone has finished, have them score each hinge moment on a scale of 1 to 10, positive or negative, depending if it’s a high point or hard time. (1 minute)
  • Participants circle the top 10 most defining hinge moments of their life (1 minute).
  • Give participants 4 minutes to map out the top 10 hinge moments on the Life-Line worksheet. (It doesn’t have to be even between hard/high.)
  • Have participants insert three break points into their Life-Line, creating four different chapters in their life with the age range for each chapter. (2 minutes) Later they will name these chapters but for now the age range serves as a chapter title.

Purpose/Objective

To reveal important patterns in a participant’s life by stimulating awareness and connection of significant life events and relationships. To initiate the journey of learning to understand their life story.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: If you don’t interpret your story, your past will determine your future. If you DO interpret your story, your past can fuel your future.

  • Bring the age range over to the Life Discovery Grid, initially serving in each of the top boxes to designate the four different chapters of their life
  • Have participants fill out a draft of the Life Discovery Grid by filling out 2-5 bullet points in each square of the grid (examples, instructions and questions also available in the Participant Guide).
  • Once the grid is complete, participants go back and name each of the chapters in a way that feels significant to each chapter.
  • Give space for people to quietly reflect on God’s hand in their life as they think through the Life Discovery Grid questions. 
  • After they’ve evaluated their 4 chapters, have them guess, “In light of what you’ve seen in your past, what do you think the next chapter of life will look like?”
