Here's what some people are saying about the Life Calling Bootcamp. Experience for yourself what they've learned about our approach.
"The world needs more brave people who will venture to do what only they can. But you don’t just fall into your life calling—you need courage, focus, and a guide who has been there. I’ve seen Chris Heinz take bold steps into his calling and he’ll help you walk into yours."
"The desire to experience meaning in one’s life and work is profound, but the process of discerning and living a calling can be confusing and complex. The Life Calling Bootcamp understands this and embraces the need for nuance. It brings the vital components of the calling journey together in one place. I strongly recommend it."
"Thank you very much Chris and the team. Your sharings of life calling have been fantastic. They have confirmed my own life calling. I love your commitment to the training and your availability."
"I had already been working as a life calling coach and yet Chris' material in the Life Calling Institute gave me a clearer and more detailed perspective on life calling. His approach is very tangible, easy to remember and helpful in the pursuit of a meaningful life."
"I am continually encouraged by what you are doing to help others find their calling. I believe I've found my life calling to help adoptive families, and I pray that others will do the same as a result of this class."
Finding and living your life calling takes intention, focus, and the right elements. Our Bootcamp takes a comprehensive approach to life calling.

Hi, I’m Cat, an ACC qualified coach with the International Coaching Federation.

I’m based in the UK and am an avid reader, knitter, coffee drinker, snowboarder, paddle boarder and foster carer! When I’m not coaching or trying new fun activities, I also run a laser engraving business with my husband and try and do a good job of raising our two birth sons (who also have their own business, buying and selling lego!)
I tend to work with entrepreneurs, business owners and church leaders in my day to day coaching work but also adore taking people through their CliftonStrengths results and going on a journey of finding the joy and the way forwards in your purpose, calling and dreams. I can’t wait to meet you and find out what only you have to bring to the world.
My life as a young adult had been miserable with constant feelings of rejection and isolation. God healed my broken heart.

I find great joy in coaching people who want to lead intentional lives of purpose and impact. I have a particular passion for “coaching the world-changers” – young adults (and the adults they grow up to be!) with a deep desire to use their abilities to make a positive difference in the world, regardless if “world” means their immediate sphere of family and friends or a wider circle.
I use resources such as CliftonStrengths, the Enneagram, and creative problem solving tools to help clients grow in self-awareness and make creative and courageous choices in their lives. I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Canisius College (Buffalo, NY) and a Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry from Christ the King Seminary (East Aurora, NY).

My expertise around the integration of coaching with Neuroscience helps clients get unstuck, which often centers around mindsets and beliefs. I was Chris Heinz's life coach and subsequently brought into LCI to train and mentor the coaches who staff the Life Calling Bootcamp. I'm a faculty member, and former Dean of Life Coaching, at the Professional Christian Coaching Institute.
I've earned a master’s degree in Education, having logged over 4,200 hours coaching and mentoring clients. I've been married to Deanna for 38 years and we have two adult daughters, one who is married, and one grandson whom we find every excuse to spend time with.
When not coaching, I enjoy spending time with family, reading history around WWII and traveling in the mid-Atlantic region with Deanna.
I imagine that you have a deep desire to explore some really important things in your life? You are on an exciting journey of discovery and learning. As a coach, I join with you on that journey – taking the opportunity to listen to where you are at, to help you to think deeply about what is most meaningful, and to pose questions that help you to achieve growth. For me, being able to be with you is what brings my calling alive.

I am born and bred in Aotearoa – New Zealand, the land of many cultures, of the Lord of the Rings, and the All Blacks. I discovered the joy of coaching around 8 years ago, and although my calling has found a range of expressions over my various careers, I love the meaning and purpose that I have discovered in my role of a coach. I am a trained Strengths coach with Gallup and love seeing the joy in people’s eyes as they experience that ‘ah-ha’ moment that comes with self-discovery. I have the privilege of coaching individuals, couples, leaders, and church and work-based teams, helping people to understand self and others to build connections and relationships. I have been married to Rose for 34 years and have seen our three daughters grow into beautiful, strong women. I am now loving the role of grandparenting – the life that comes from being young, without the responsibility and tiredness of being the parent!)

My goal: inspire them to achieve greater personal satisfaction, confidence, meaningful performance outcomes, and success.

I have been married for over two decades and have two young adult daughters, one biological and one adopted. Part of my life calling has been immersion in parenting, marriage, and baby-boomer generation lived experiences, including being part of the sandwich generation, raising daughters and helping an aging parent navigate healthy independence.
Life calling isn’t always easy. By the time I was 40, three of my immediate family had tragically passed away. I have first-hand experience with grief and actualizing my life calling through that grief.
The apostle Paul gave some guidance for the purpose of such life experiences in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, “Blessed be…the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” (ESV).
I am grateful for the privilege I have had to broaden and deepen my knowledge and experiences so that I may serve my clients most effectively.
I have been formally coaching since 2017, but I have been mentoring for decades. My faith is key to my coaching and is my lens for life calling. My Top 5 Clifton Strengths are Learner, Connectedness, Individualization, Input and Achiever. I am an Enneagram social 8-wing 7. I love people and value and honor their personhood.
I believe we are uniquely created and gifted and that everyone has a unique life calling.
Hi, I’m Marianne from Phoenix, Arizona. After successfully changing careers from Environmental Science to Counseling, I spent the last three decades in a job I loved – as Counseling Faculty at a Community College. My greatest joy in that job was guiding individuals (of all ages and backgrounds) to find the meaningful work that would nourish their soul as well as provide a positive lifestyle.
