Timothy Keller wrote a book about vocations called “Every Good Endeavor”. In this book, he said, “one of the hopes for our unraveling society is the recovery of the idea that all human work is not merely a job but a calling. The Latin word vocare — to call — is at the root of our common word “vocation.” Today the word often means simply a job, but that was not the original sense. A job is a vocation only if someone else calls you to do it and you do it for them rather than for yourself. And so our work can be a calling only if it is reimagined as a mission of service to something beyond merely our own interests. Thinking of work mainly as a means of self-fulfillment and self-realization slowly crushes a person and undermines society itself.”
We decided to called our ministry Vocare Ministries LTD because we seek to help men find their calling and to seek a mission of service to something beyond fulfilling their own interests.
The mission of Vocare Ministries is to empower individuals and organizations in Uganda to meet their needs in culturally relevant and sustainable ways. The primary means by which we accomplish this is through discipleship, vocational training, business training, and leadership training. Our vision for Uganda is that individuals and organizations are empowered to meet their own needs without outside involvement.
