“What am I called to?” That’s the question many of us seem to be asking. Our culture has conditioned us to equate “vocation” with “occupation,” and the results are distressing. The fact that 70% of Americans are disengaged from their work should be cause for concern. But it should also cause us to ask better questions about what vocation really means – and seek better answers.
In this course, Dan Steiner, Denver Seminary Mentoring Director and 5280 Fellows cohort leader, shares principles to expand our understanding of vocation, clarifies what the Bible means by “calling,” and shows us how a more robust and Christ-grounded vision of calling can help us find purpose in our work, navigate job transitions, and respond to God’s summons to be his people in all dimensions of life.
