students have a clear picture of what they will do after
graduation? Are there some who lack a sense of purpose
Dr. J. P. Moreland
identifes a common problem among students today: "Drifting
is an epidemic in the youth culture of America."
are aware of the problem and are seeking a solution. A survey
conducted by Josh McDowell revealed that the number three
thing young people want from life is "a purpose."
A study by George
Barna confirms the need. He found that six out of
ten teenagers want a "clear purpose in life."
Dr. Brad Widstrom
takes it a step further. He says, "Today's Christian
youth are driven by a passion for making a difference.
They want a cause. They want to make their life count.
This desire affects their quest to answer the important
questions of 'What will I be when I grow up?' and
'How can I live a life of significance that makes a difference.'"

Commenting on these guidebooks,
Reg Grant (Professor of Pastoral Ministries at Dallas Theological
Seminary and author of Storm: The Surprising Story of

impressed. These are an excellent tool for anyone who wants to grow
spiritually – not only in terms of finding a career direction, but in
their own relationship with the Lord.
The material is well organized. I found it very easy reading and it provokes
good, deep thinking at the same time. It's also fun.
Many students rush
through career guidance and assume that somehow it will
all work out. However, once in the workforce, they
find it's not that easy. They have spent years preparing
academically, but have spent little to no time preparing
for the workplace from a biblical perspective.
Do most students
really believe God is active in their workplace? What
will they do when their career path does not take the direction
they think it should? Where will they turn when boredom
creeps in? How will they respond when a co-worker
receives a promotion or a pay raise they deserved?
What will they say when an office mate gets a choice assignment
that was rightfully theirs? What will be their attitude
when they feel overlooked, unappreciated, hurt or treated
unfairly? To whom will they turn when they become
angry and lose hope?
Purpose-Inspired Career Game Plan will help your students
build a foundation for the forty or more years they will
spend in the workplace. With it, you can prepare
them to enter the workplace with a stronger sense of purpose
and clearer direction.
