The decision to select a major and/or vocation is one of the most important decisions a person will make. This decision sets life on a specific course. This decision is often left up to the whims of youth, family tradition, and secular guidance counselors. The church is usually divorced from this decision. Personal comfort and the ability to make a decent living, rather than the mission of God, are often given priority.
In this episode, I address this problem with five suggestions to help church leaders shepherd their people to the marketplace. With billions of people in the world without Christ, evangelicals need to embrace a stewardship of vocation. Leading people to obtain marketable skills and degrees is a must for today’s pastor.
