Event Description

Everyone has a calling. Whether you work in an office, a construction site, or a church, you are called to your vocation. So how do you find your calling? This online session focuses on major life decisions along the vocational journey and reveals how to listen carefully and openly for God’s still, small voice.

At this session, you'll hear recent Bethel grad Jon Bonkoski of Mortenson Construction share his own discovery of workplace calling. Learn about making wise education decisions; exploring career vocational discernment; implementing transformational leadership in your home, work, and community; and advancing the kingdom of Christ within your sphere of influence. The conversation will be facilitated by Dr. Justin Irving, professor of ministry leadership and director of the Work with Purpose Initiative.
