Do you ever feel lost?
Do you wonder why you’re here or, for that matter, why any of us are here?
If you follow Jesus, you have a hardwired, internal compass in the Holy Spirit that’s pointing you in one direction: to love the whole world. But this was never meant to be a solo trek. He has created each of us to live in community, welcoming our friends, family, and neighbors near and far to join us as we travel through life together, as His witnesses, as His hands and feet.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
Resources for the Journey
The family business
“Let Christ shine through your life. This is what it means to be part of God’s family business!”
In this parable tale, five adult siblings from a family in Iowa wrestle with their father’s invitation to join the family business. Each child has skills, passions, and goals of their own; the question is, do they have to give it all up to follow their father? Or could accepting a role in the family business open doors they never imagined?
“Get ready to be drawn in. This is a beautiful masterpiece you won’t want to miss.”
Sherry Surratt, Geographical Vice President of North America, OneHope
“An enjoyable and discussable read, this book can help make Kingdom business the business of your home, group, church–and life.”
Emily Sarmiento, President & CEO, Tearfund USA
“A must-read for people deciding whether to step into the Father’s business with their full lives, time, passions, and finances.”
Lawrence Tong, International Director, Operation Mobilisation
“This easy-to-read and engaging book acts as a great reminder of the invitation from Jesus to His followers to engage in the work of His father in every context we find ourselves in!”
Noddy Sharma, Head of church, schools and youth engagement, World Vision Australia
A Reflection Guide for Personal and Small Group Study
Live the Life You Were Made For is an online course of study authored by Geoff and Rev. Patrick Oden, offered through Fuller Theological Seminary. The course is designed to help participants fully understand Jesus’ command to “go and make disciples,” and connect each person’s unique gifting with a posture of love and hope as we all strive to follow His calling. (Available in English, Spanish, Portuguese)
Course Fee: $30 (USD)
What are you Made For? In this 9-episode podcast, we explore who we are in the eyes of God and what He intends for each of us in a global context. Listen to stories from around the world that reveal how God works through ordinary people to create the most amazing, unpredictable transformation stories for His glory.
It’s a fact: fewer than one-tenth of one percent of Christians embrace the Great Commission. How could that be? Why do people choose to follow Jesus, but not His command? This divide between what we do and what we are called to do is called the mission gap, and it represents one of the most exciting opportunities of our time for church and ministry leaders.

Invite Geoff to Speak
“Happiness doesn’t come from doing whatever you want, it comes from stepping into the life you were made for.”
Geoff Peters has authored two books, The Family Business and Love Child (to be released in 2022) and has led speaking engagements and workshops in more than 10 countries for churches, ministries, and conferences, including the Evangelical Press Association.
Geoff’s passion is to inspire people to be a living witness of God’s love in the world. He speaks regularly on the common fears and barriers that prevent Jesus followers from accepting their role – and actively participating – in God’s mission of love and compassion. His heart beats to encourage people to step beyond the safety of their comfort zones and experience the joy and freedom that comes with servanthood.
Geoff holds an MBA from Concordia University Irvine and has spent the lion’s share of his professional life in global marketing. Years of research in multiple countries around the world has afforded Geoff a unique window into the hearts of Christians. Geoff’s ability to see beyond the surface and identify real motivators among Christian audiences has translated into years of practical experience helping ministries engage more effectively with their people.
Currently, Geoff is global Chief Marketing Officer & Brand Champion at Operation Mobilisation (OM) International. He previously served on the executive teams of international ministries like publishing firm David C Cook and humanitarian aid organization Compassion International. For three years, Geoff was also a campus pastor at Sunrise United Methodist Church (Colorado Springs, CO).
Geoff is married with three children in sunny (and snowy) Colorado.
