Episode 41: Why Am I Here and What is My Purpose? with Justin Jeter

About this episode:
This week on the Crown Stewardship Podcast, we welcome Justin Jeter, co-Founder of PurposeMatch.com. Handre DeJongh and Justin talk about a topic they are both passionate about purpose. Finding your purpose can feel like an enormous, intangible goal, but Justin breaks down purpose into practical steps with a clear process. They discuss the difference between what the world may consider when thinking about purpose in contrast to what a God-given purpose looks like. If you have ever asked yourself the question, “Why am I here?” (and we know you have!), you will not want to miss this episode.


Podcast Highlights:

  • Questioning our purpose is a universal question. What is purpose, and what is it not?
  • You’ll hear about the process of purpose discovery: grounding ourselves in Kingdom hope, taking what God has given us, and using it to address important needs in the world.
  • The intersection of God given strengths, gifts, and talents, and understanding how they relate to what's needed in the world will determine our purpose.
