What is the Divine Design Process?

It is the foundational process that MSC employs to maximize Christian leaders' joy in God by helping them clarify their unique identity. It walks a Christian leader through a process of understanding each person's individual attributes that makes that person who they are. 

Every leader, at some point, asks the question: Who am I? This is the process that is designed to give you maximum levels of clarity around this question. 

What is the pay-off of MSC's Divine Design Process?

Ultimately, it is allowing you to experience maximum joy in God. MSC believes that your maximum joy in God is fueled by an alignment of your God-given unique identity with your God-given life mission. When you know how God has made you, you will better discern what God made you to do, and this leads to greater joyfulness in your life. What Christian leader isn't more joyful when their identity and mission are aligned to give God the greatest glory?

How does the Divine Design Process work?

When you sign up for any of MSC's bundles, you have the opportunity to begin working through this process. It is the hope that most MSC clients will complete this process. Or, you can simply choose the DDP Option from the get-go to work exclusively through this foundational process.

How do I know I've finished the process?

There are 12 specific elements to the completed process. These elements are the content to your MSC Personal Constitution. 

What is the MSC Personal Constitution?

The MSC Personal Constitution is the digital packet that you will put together throughout the Divine Design Process. This packet currently contains 12 elements.

Those elements are:

  1. Your Keynote Autobiography Worksheet ("chapter-izing" and reflecting on your story)
  2. Your Covenant Relationships
  3. Your Core Values and Value Commitments
  4. Your Core Burdens
  5. Your Divine Design Statement
  6. Your Primary Task Statement
  7. Your Personal Mission Statement
  8. Your Top 3-5 Strengths
  9. Your Bottom 3-5 Weaknesses
  10. Your compilation of personality profiles 
  11. Your declaration of intent to glorify God in all you are and do
  12. Your Divine Design Declarations

What does the Divine Design Process cost?

Currently, this process has been woven into the fabric of the coaching process. In other words, you can work through aspects of this process with Michael as he coaches you. 

However, beginning in the summer of 2017, you will be able to purchase the process separately, but you will still need Michael to walk you through it and process your discoveries. 

In other words, you can begin your coaching relationship by focusing entirely on this process with Michael. In this format, you will meet with Michael no more than 15 times within a 6-month period to create a MSC Personal Constitution. 

What if it takes less than 15, one-hour meetings to create my Personal Constitution?

 As an added benefit, any meetings you do not use for the Divine Design Process can be completed as a part of an on-going process to help you live your unique mission. For example, if it only takes you 10 meetings to create your Personal Constitution, you effectively also have a FREE 5-meeting bundle to be coached so that you can begin to implement what you have learned about who you are and what you are built to do. That would be a HUGE cost benefit to you. It's meant to be. MSC believes that the greatest benefit to your long-term joy is found by laying a foundation through the Divine Design Process.

What if you need more than 15, one-hour meetings to create your Personal Constitution?

MSC will do all that it can to help you complete your Personal Constitution within 15 meetings and a 6-month time period. However, this is your process. You must put in the time, energy and prayer to complete it. If you are unable to complete the process in 15 meetings, you can purchase any of the available coaching bundles at $50 off or begin a coaching relationship at a per-meeting rate. The per-meeting rate is higher than the bundles rates are, but gives you the flexibility to meet when you want and as often or little as you want. 

If I want to start the Divine Design Process, do I get to start the Divine Design Process?

Not necessarily. Just like in the coaching bundles, a pre-coaching interview of about 30 minutes is required to make sure that your desire to be coached and my coaching abilities are a great match. There are some people who want coaching, but need counseling. Others want coaching, but need a different type than I offer. And still others may have sufficient theological differences that would make a Christ-centered, Bible-based coaching relationship impossible. It is my hope that both you and I enter into any professional relationship with confidence that we can succeed.
