What is ‘calling’?

How do we handle seasons where God seems silent about our calling?

How do you step into what you think God is doing when all the doors keep closing?

How does serving in insignificant roles make a difference to our callings?

How do we discern which ideas to pursue when we have some many ideas?

How can we encourage people to be content with seemingly insignificant callings?

How can we get access to leaders and mentors who are so busy?

How can we decide who we should mentor?



Jo and Steph are live answering questions on calling at Mercy Vineyard Church in Minnesota



References mentioned:


Matthew 28: we are commissioned


Acts 21: we are witnesses


1 Corinthians 12: we are part of a body


Isaiah 61: Jesus’ calling


Discussion questions:


1) Ask one another: ‘Where do you see me come most alive?’ &  ‘When do you see me most discouraged and depleted?’


2) What are the small, perhaps difficult things God is calling you to be faithful in right now?


3) Who are you mentoring right now? Who is mentoring you?
