2011 National Gathering Testimony: Christian Vocation

Joe Clifford speaks on Christian Vocation

In this delightful talk, Joe Clifford explains the chemistry concept of the “adjacent possible”– there are numerous chemical reactions possible based on what is next to you. Likewise in the church, Joe notes, there is extraordinary change and opportunity possible, limited only by what we’re adjacent to. He cites as an example the possibility of connecting the Young Adult Volunteer program to campus ministry. The introduction is by Agnes Norfleet.

Joe Clifford is the pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Dallas, TX and member of the NEXT Church Advisory Team. Agnes Norfleet is the pastor of Shandon Presbyterian Church in Columbia, SC and member of the NEXT Church Advisory Team.
