Career & Call Online Course

by Jan 22, 2022Online Courses

Your call is more all-encompassing than any single career.

Call is how you put together lots of elements of your life–your relationships, recreation, and non-paid work–into a meaningful whole. No single role in your career can bear all the weight of your need for purpose.

That said, over a lifetime you will probably spend more time at your places of work than you spend doing any other single activity.

Taking the time to find work worth doing, a career that fits you well, is an important investment.

In this Career & Call course, you will learn a practice you can do again and again.

By watching the 9-video lessons and completing the various worksheets, you will learn a process of discovery and discernment that you can use over and over again in making life decisions both now and in the future.

“I LOVED this material! It was helpful as I am in a season of discovering my calling more and more and seeking God for what He has made me for. I loved the workbook sheets about calling that we received and was grateful for the time to work on it.”
– Sandhya Oaks, Campus Minister and Cofounder of The Adoption Triad

“The workbook was super helpful. Taking time to go through the many different ways the workbook draws out calling and desire was priceless. It helped me to better understand what I was doing and why I was doing it. In one of the exercises, I was surprised to find myself rating leadership even higher than counseling which helped me take some important next steps.”
– Holly Pankrazt, Owner of Reflection Counseling and Minister of Care and Equipping at Westminster Chapel
