Advance – MBTI (Find Your Purpose)

Make a Choice. Take a Chance. Create a Change.

Advance helps us determine how to become who we were created to be using the MBTI personality assessment, Gallup’s StrengthsFinder, the Enneagram, and the Character Matrix.

How do your preferences shape what may be your calling (MBTI)?
How do your strengths shape what may be your calling (Gallup StrengthsFinder)?
How do your underlying motivations shape what may be your calling (Enneagram)?
How do you grow to become a servant leader (Character Matrix)?

Discovering your uniqueness can help you discover your purpose.

  • What are areas of need you see around you that you sense need to be met?
  • How can you meet those needs?
  • What does God want you to do for the world?
  • How did God create you to love Him and love people?
