Event description

Description

Does God call you to ministry if you are not licensed or ordained, and what does that look like? Steve will explore the theology of vocation, consider some biblical models and share something of his experience of calling in a variety of contexts. These include working in the electronics industry while a Free Church lay minister, being a full-time Christian Centre Director and a Youth & Community Worker, serving as Rector of a parish in Portsmouth diocese, and finally becoming Principal of the Local Ministry Programme training people for licensed ministry. Recently he has even served as a ‘layperson’ on the ethics committee of a major company, examining equipment testing protocols for the defence industry!

This session will be fully interactive and Steve will help us to consider for ourselves whether we all have a single call expressed in various contexts, or rather a personal vocation developing and shifting? How might God’s call come to us afresh as our life setting and life stage change? Can we identify something that traces a common thread into the discipleship that all Christians share? How can we create a culture of vocation in our churches?

Speaker:

Revd Dr Steve Summers is the Principal of Guildford diocese’s Local Ministry Programme that trains Licensed Lay Ministers and locally deployable priests.
