  • The Call Course

    "CALL is the place in the world where you offer healing and at the same time,

    your own soul is healed."

    Call

    Being Called to God’s work is not just for overseas missionaries and pastors. Every one of us has a God-given call: a unique way we are to bring about healing to our world. In this course, we will discover the clues to help each of us discern the call God has placed on our lives. When we join God in acting on our call, we are most alive and find meaning and purpose in deeper ways.

    Introduction

    Deep within, we long to know the meaning and purpose of why God made us. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10) But what is calling? How do I discern the things God would have me do today, tomorrow, and as the overarching theme of my life? How does God’s call connect me with the poor and marginalized of the world? How do I know when I have truly discerned God’s call and purpose? Come explore this journey with a group committed to seeking after God’s call on their lives.
