Career & Calling

Finding a student's purpose in a field that will serve them and their family for years to come is essential for a life of success.

Content for students has been provided to us by the Ron Blue Institute, Crown Financial Ministries and others to raise up generous and responsible Gen-Z students.  Growing content in new Student Discussion Groups is helpful for families.  We also work with Career Direct so that students are aware of Financial Advisor career paths.

Parents want the best for their kids

A historic coalition of ministries and denominations has collaborated so parents can go through this platform together with their 10th-12th grade student and start selecting colleges based on ministries and churches they can actually connect with and talk to.   This includes other resources about calling, career, and major as well as a process to avoid crippling student debt.  See this one-minute student video.

Minimizing College Debt

Minimal student debt

Families are incurring unprecedented debt for a college degree, that often does not lead to a commensurate employment opportunity, in part, because they don't understand the how the business of college operates.  Our partner, College Assistance Plus, born out of a relationship with Larry Burkett (Crown Financial Ministries), helps families approach college as a business, so they can reduce college costs regardless of income through approaches to get the best offer then negotiate lower tuition in undergrad and graduate school.  COVID has also created special opportunities. See College Assistance Plus. Through this we can help you:

  • Preserve Assets for your clients
  • Help you serve Churches and Christian Schools
  • Provide community education resources that help you serve clients and generate prospects

See red links for services

Just send clients the Family Page.

Career, Major, and Calling

Calling and Career

:Identifying the the right direction before college is key to finding a rewarding life purpose and getting out of undergrad in four years.  The average is 5.5 years due to changing majors too many times.  60% of college grad's say their greatest regret is selecting the wrong major.  A Forbes study showed that 72% of adults feel they picked the wrong career.

The Family Page will direct students and parents to career/major/calling resources to help them.  These include:

Growing Faith in College

Vibrant Faith

Every Student Sent is a unique community-based platform for preparing 10-12th grade students with a vision of connecting to college ministries, churches, and each other in order to propel them towards Gospel-centered mission as they navigate and engage culture during college.  It's a national movement of major college ministries, youth ministries, denominations, Christian schools, and homeschool groups to connect and prepare teens for future leadership.  When you register on this free platform you get full access to the features and resources including the embedded social groups.  The Family page of www.EveryStudentSent.org is a jumping off spot to orient you to the features and resources.
