APPL 529/INDS 529

Calling, Context, and the Church: From Belonging to Witness

This course is also offered as INDS 529

Course Description

How do churches discern and incarnate God’s calling in their communities? Grounded in a theological framework for vocation, insights from contemporary scholar-practitioners, qualitative tools and strategies, and relevant case studies that include the work of Regent Exchange, this course offers a fresh approach to vocation with practical implications for the church as a learning community. Students will come away with a new vision for their church’s vocation along with a draft plan to cultivate a deeper engagement with these ideas in their own ecclesial and community contexts.

What I love about Regent is that it’s a place for people who have questions about their ordinary lives. Not just academic theological questions, but questions about what it means to live the good life or be faithful. Not just a space for heady conversations but a place to wrestle with faith and a place where they can belong.” — Vivian Lee (MATS student)
