Finding your vocation

First, God calls us by our name. We learn who we are in the light of his love for us. God’s knowledge of us, greater than our knowledge of ourselves, calls us to be transformed so that we become both more like Christ and more like the people that God intended us to be.

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit – fruit that will last.”

John 15:16

Minority Ethnic Vocations

Here, we do not have a narrow definition of what a minister might look like, we are clear that there’s no cookie-cutter approach to vocations.

Our challenge to all the Church’s ministers:

Have at least one conversation about vocation each month, with someone different from you.
