DISCOVERING MY CALLING

What Do I Do If I Don’t Know What My Calling Is?

You are not alone! Historically between 15 and 50% of Vineyard Institute students enter our program with only the still small call of the Lord. There is a spark but you don’t know what it is exactly for and in obedience you are seeking to move forward and get equipped. We would suggest to you to get lots of prayer with your small group, pastor, and church.

But also consider stepping into structured and rigorous Biblical and theological training which can reap a harvest of personal and ministry vision. Join other students from around the world just like you who are stepping forward in faith without knowing exactly what God will show them. Give 5 hours a week to take a course. If it goes well, take two. If you love it--make a commitment to finish a certificate to equip you for God’s next steps for your life.

The Journey to Discover Your Calling

What is God calling you to? We suggest just getting started with the Vineyard Essentials courses listed below. These will inspire you to a deeper understanding of God, what His kingdom is all about and how He created all of us to be a part of it here on earth. These courses will also teach you what the Vineyard is made of and the essence of the calling God has for the Vineyard movement. Perhaps you will find your calling as part of the bigger calling in the movement.
