Image of God

We are created in Gods image. Genesis 1:26-27 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. [27] So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. We are special and unique to God. Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knows right well.

God created and formed us. Isaiah 44:2 Thus say the LORD that made you, and formed you from the womb... God called us from the womb for a specific calling, occupation, or ministry. Isaiah 49:1 Listen, O islands, unto me; and hear, you people, from afar; The LORD has called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the belly I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet unto the nations. Galatians 1:15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, 2 Timothy 1:9 Who has saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, We are all blessed with gifts from God. Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: Our gifts come from God. James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. We are stewards of the gifts God has given to us. 1 Peter 4:10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

The guidelines competencies were organized into three areas Self-Knowledge Educational and Occupational Exploration Career Planning

Self-knowledge deals with our self-concept, interpersonal skills, growth, and development.

Career planning includes self-assessment, career exploration, decision making, life role formation, goal setting, and the implementation of career choices II.

From the assessments, we will gain knowledge and understanding of Abilities Callings Destinies Educational plans Interests Lifes missions Motivational gifts Personality types Priorities Skills Talents Visions/ Dreams Vocational plans

Romans 12:3-8 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. [4] For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: [5] So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. [6] Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; [7] Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teaches, on teaching; [8] Or he that exhorts, on exhortation: he that gives, let him do it with simplicity; he that rules, with diligence; he that shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
