“I chose you and put you in the world to bear fruit–fruit that won’t spoil.'" — John 15:16

What is a Calling?

Callings are Jesus’ invitation to follow him into our workplaces, neighborhoods, and relationships as people of peace. Living out hope, renewal and justice with the people and places around us is one part of a Christian’s spiritual formation.

The callings are woven together with the Practices of PEACE and cross cultural gospel community to fill us with the character and mission of Jesus. Together they form a whole, vital life.

  3. Join with others in mission (Community Groups, Collectives or the church at large).

Focus on a Calling

Neighborhood

We are sent into the Neighborhoods in which we are rooted, to love people where they are, serve the community and seek justice for all who are nearby and those in need.

  • Discuss with a Community Group the Authentic Neighbor series (CG members, log into your account and click on the "Neighborhood" category)
