Day 6: Missional Christmas

Six Missional Careers

When a baby is born, we often think of what he or she will become. Will the child follow in the steps of his parents in the family business? Will the child become a doctor, lawyer, engineer or teacher?

For the baby Jesus it was anticipated that he would follow in the steps of Joseph, his earthly father, and become a carpenter or craftsman – and so he did. But the New Testament also shares a broader story of who Jesus grew up to be: not only a craftsman but a shepherd, a teacher, a prophet, a priest and a king.

“On the first day of Christmas, my Lord & Savior sent me:
Six Missional Careers,
Five Missional Answers,
Four Educational Levels,
Three Intercultural Options,
Two Missional Opportunities,
and a Christian on a Unique Mission”

The disciples who followed Jesus were average ordinary people: fishermen, a tax collector, a community organizer, tradesmen, and a treasurer. At Missional University we equip average ordinary followers of Jesus to merge their faith, career and mission. We specialize in designing programs to support six very unique types of missional careers:

  • Careers in Navigating Cultural Differences
  • Careers in Living Your Life as Mission
  • Careers in Transforming Communities
  • Careers in Communicating Creatively
  • Careers in Caring for Creation
  • Careers in Joining God’s Mission

Won’t you join us in equipping 21st-century believers to serve in the mission of God through their career? Download our Missional Career e-booklet and see how God can use you.
