Callings: Faith, Vocation, and Life Together
Christian theology provides a coherent framework for intellectual and spiritual inquiry and for guiding young men and women in discerning their vocation. In this talk, I explain how Christian perspectives on vocation or “callings” remain a relevant concept for Generation Z. I will give examples that show how youth leaders can better equip, support, and mentor young people as they consider their faith, vocation, and life together in Christ (Colossians 1:17).
