Concordia University presents the initial Convocation of the 2013-14 academic year, "Discover and Engage Your Purpose." Presentation with President Ries, CSP students, staff and faculty.
Do you think you were born into this world for a purpose? If so, do you have a sense of being led toward that purpose? In its Promise Statement, Concordia University commits to empower students to “discover and engage your purpose for life, career, and service.” Inherent in this promise is the Christian concept of “vocation,” which means to be called or summoned. Concordia President Tom Ries will speak from his own perspective on what it means for a person to pursue a vocation or discover and engage a purpose in life. His brief presentation will be followed by small group discussion, allowing participants to share their own aspirations for life, career and service.
