The Apostle Paul
Character is an internal energy that inspires us to act, restrains us from acting, and gives us the wisdom or moral compass to know when each action is appropriate. Everything we do in life is driven by our character. When character is acquired and held internally, it leads to a virtuous life, lived for a Greater Purpose.
THERE’S SOMETHING BIGGER THAN ME
Greater Purpose is a cause or passion we love deeply,
for which we would relinquish our own self-interest.
It is a context bigger than ourselves. The Christian Character
Formation Project grows character in the context of Scripture
and God’s plan for each of us here and in eternity.
The Christian’s Greater Purpose is to glorify God
and to make Him known.
Character is not what I do. It is who I am.
The Christian Character Formation Project guides participants through a unique process that deepens their understanding of Identity (who I am), Purpose (why I exist), and Actions (how my actions serve a Greater Purpose). Our process unfolds within the greater context of Scripture and the advancement of God’s plan for us here and in eternity. The result is internally held character that motivates acts of virtue.
Seven key virtues are explored and practiced throughout the process. While these virtues are an essential part of the process, virtuous living is not the end goal. Rather, virtues are a means to accomplish Greater Purpose.
Our team has developed hundreds of vivid narratives, lesson
plans and facilitator guides specifically for Christian educational
environments. Our online platform and app for mobile devices
enable parents, teachers, students, families and other mentors
to collaborate on the character formation journey.
