Changes on the college campus
- Lower number of students enrolling in vocational ministry degrees
- Combination of ministry degree programs/courses (undergraduate and graduate)
- The topic of “calling” has shifted and less students are leaning into a vocational calling
- Universal: the calling of all believers
- Unique: the calling to those set apart for vocational ministry
What can the church do?
- Elevate the conversation about being called into ministry
- Share your “calling” testimony
- Celebrate the church rather than only about the difficulties and hardships (the privilege to serve the bride of Christ)
- Provide opportunities for people to serve (especially those who are exploring and sensing a calling)
- Focus more on what you “get to do” instead of what you “have to do”
- Gift the book to a few students
- Start student leadership experience
- Start a vocational ministry pathway
