Called to Serve
Are you still pondering what your unique calling might be? Perhaps you are wondering how to turn your call into action or how to connect with the people who can help you fulfill your mission? In Called to Serve II: Going Deeper, you will embark on an in-depth journey to discover and define the uniquely personal work God has prepared for you.

In these "hands on" classes, participants work collaboratively in exploring their callings, developing strategies for overcoming obstacles, taking action, and unleashing the power of networking. You will be inspired and encouraged by the stories of our guest speakers and the life-changing impact of following God's call.
