Bethel Church’s Kris Vallotton Is Destined to Win

Kris Vallotton Destined to Win Bethel Church book faith finding purposeWhen Kris Vallotton sat down to write his 13th book, the senior associate leader of California-based Bethel Church and co-founder of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry decided he wanted to broaden his audience. “Destined to Win,” released in January, does just that. Vallotton gives readers practical ways to find their purpose in life and unlock their potential, answering the universal question, “Why am I alive?” We got the lowdown from the author and scored insight into his views on mentorship while we were at it.

What do you want this book to be for people?

I want to be able to hand this book to a person who maybe doesn’t know God at all, maybe on a plane or in a hotel, and instead of it being a hill they have to climb as they read the book, I’d like it to be a speed bump. I wrote every single chapter conscious of subjects people have a hard time digesting, and thinking: How can I say this in a way that the person could easily digest? It’s a much easier read [than my previous books]. There’s not any supernatural language in it, so it’s not a “charismatic” book, and I think it captures [the reader] with stories. I also think it’s the most practical book I’ve ever written because I worked hard to ask myself the hard questions. It’s like having a life coach in a book.

So who is this broader audience you envision reading the book?

I specifically wrote this book for people who are looking for purpose. In my mind, oftentimes the most gifted yet directionless people to grace the planet are millennials. I think high schoolers to late college-aged people are probably most deeply entrenched in [questions like]: What am I supposed to be doing? Who am I supposed to be with? I think this book helps answer the questions of the heart.
