In her new book, Introducing the Practice of Ministry, Kathleen Cahalan argues that the call to discipleship is the fundamental vocation of all Christians and that ministry exists in the churches to serve the life of discipleship. But some ask, “What is discipleship and what is ministry? How can we understand what our roles are? What is shared and what is distinctive about these vocations? Why should we concern ourselves with these vocations?” This session will examine a theology of vocation as it relates to both discipleship and ministry.
