"Calling" is a term that is commonly used in Christian life. But what does it actually mean to have a calling? Join Joanna Meyer and Brian Gray as they discuss Part II of this important topic with Daniel Steiner, a leadership coach with over 20 years of experience as a pastor, professor, and speaker; and with William Klein, Professor Emeritus of New Testament Interpretation at Denver Seminary. Together they have co-authored "What Is My Calling?: A Biblical and Theological Exploration of Christian Identity".


On living as a believer:

"Nevertheless, each person should live as a believer in whatever situation the Lord has assigned him, just as God called them." -I Corinthians 7

On spiritual formation:

" I think calling has everything to do with our spiritual formation as believers. In fact, it's the primary issue here..." -Bill Klein

On competency & our identity in Christ:

"When it comes to developing your strengths, talents, abilities, and so forth, I think that's absolutely imperative for all people, especially in a time in which jobs are changing... We need to be competent, but competency and character- competency and this identity in Christ shouldn't be fully divorced from one another..." -Dan Steiner
