About DestinyWorks

Upon retiring from pastoral work, Dave Rodriguez launched Destinyworks as a platform for holding workshops and providing both personal and leadership coaching.

Destinyworks was founded in 2020 based on an idea – that every human being enters the world “hard wired” for purpose and meaning.


Dave had found himself, through his decades of pastoral work, spending a significant portion of his time coaching people to discover their “why”. Over time, this led to the writing of his book “A Why to Live For: Where your destiny meets the broken places of the world” and the development of the unique Calling Quilt© coaching process.

Upon retiring from pastoral work, Dave launched Destinyworks as a platform for holding workshops and providing personal coaching, both in-person and virtual, to guide people through the Calling Quilt© process.

Additionally, because of his many years of leading in large organizations, Dave began providing consulting services to a wide variety of institutions, primarily in the area of human capital and leadership development. Destinyworks has offered guidance for all size organizations, ranging from a national men’s collegiate fraternity to a large city-based social agency to a small-town local church.

A more recent addition to the Destinyworks playbook is the Well-being Project©, which was created to assist individuals in addressing the six life factors that affect a person’s ability to enjoy their best possible life and impact their world.

Destinyworks is based in central Indiana, but works with individuals and organizations from around the nation and world.
