Several years ago the Canadian Multivocational Ministry Project started research to understand the practice of combining congregational ministry with other vocational callings, as well as balancing work with family life. The research findings from this Canadian study are in and there is much wisdom to be found in the words of our Multivocational friends. Join us on July 2nd to have a conversation about how our understanding of calling to work and vocation impacts the satisfaction and sustainability of ministry life. All of our Learning Centre sessions are interactive, but in this session, in particular, we want to hear from you about your experience of vocational calling. From the Canadian Mulitivocaitonal Ministry Project research team Beth Anne Fisher, of the Wellness Project @ Wycliffe, as well as New Leaf’s Jared Siebert and Amy Bratton will share some of the research findings.
