The "Calling Congregation" encourages promising future clergy

Until the 1960s, denominations often encouraged congregations to help identify promising future clergy from among their youth. With the abolition of national offices of vocation, the American Church turned away from that task, contributing to the current dearth of young adults interested in pursuing ministry careers. In "Leaders are Born, Not Made: Wrong!" Stephen Lewis of the Calling Congregations Initiative, a program by the Forum for Theological Exploration, discusses the cultural trends and how becoming a "calling congregation" can help encourage your parish's young people toward ministry. The interview is archived on the website of Resources for American Christianity.
