Helping College Students Discern their Calling

With so many options for employment today, and so much pressure to earn status and income, it can be difficult for students to discern a religious calling and for churches to challenge their members to reflect on such things for themselves or their children.

An instructive and insightful interview with theologian William Placher about discerning the call to the ministry offers insight into how churches can help young adults discover and discuss vocations. 

In the Q&A, offered by Resources for American Christianity, Placher discusses the importance of community in helping young people discern a call.
