The assignment of your life is outside church not within the perimeters of church. People are deceived by the notion that for one to be influential they have to be called into ministry. This is not at all true because every individual believer is born for influence.
A glass with water will have a different taste and colour once juice is poured into it. The juice will completely dominate the water. Similarly for us as Christians, we are born to influence systems. We were made in the image and likeness of God to take over mountains and systems of the world. Influence entails being fruitful, multiplying and filling the earth.
There must be an environment to prove that you were indeed designed for influence. Often at times, this environment always opposes your influence. For example, if you were born to be rich, poverty will surround you. Therefore, never judge your life by the phase of life you are in now. That dark phase is not a curse but an opportunity for you.
To become a person of influence, you have to be filled, led and empowered by the Holy Spirit. This is only possible if you are born again.
