Reintegrate Your Vocation with God’s Mission
How does what you do Monday through Saturday connect with your Sunday faith? This Bible study offers a grand overview of God’s mission in the world and how normal Christians are called to participate in that mission in and through their work. Reintegrate Your Vocation with God’s Mission is a seven-part study looking at Scripture and practically applying it to our work-a-day lives.
Praise for Reintegrate Your Vocation with God’s Mission:
“I remember when I was first wrestling with the vision of ‘all of life’ mattering, reading books, hitchhiking across America and asking questions of everyone who would talk, wanting to know if it was really true. Like most, I stumbled over a disposition to dualism. To say it simply: ‘spiritual’ concerns were more important than ‘secular’ concerns. But as a coming-of-age young man, that wasn’t adequate, and I wanted more, something more coherent. So, I pressed in on the question: what does the Bible teach? I wish that I had had Bob Robinson for a guide, and that I had been able to think through my questions in light of his new book, Reintegrate Your Vocation with God’s Mission— a compelling study, shaped by Scripture, for seeing seamlessly, for a way of life where everything that matters, really does matter.”
—Dr. Steven Garber, author of Visions of Vocation: Common Grace for the Common Good
“Bob Robinson’s Reintegrate Bible study is an engaging, thoughtful, well-organized curriculum that will help many believers struggling to find their place in God’s Big Story. He has gathered together in one place the wisdom of the scriptures and the excellent thinking of numerous theologians on the creation-fall-redemption-consummation narrative. By providing practical, interactive exercises, the study helps users see the big picture and reframe their own identity and work in ways that will be both encouraging and energizing. Highly recommended.”
—Dr. Amy L. Sherman, author of Kingdom Calling: Vocational Stewardship for the Common Good
“Bob Robinson has skillfully created a transforming pathway that will narrow the Sunday to Monday gap many followers of Jesus are experiencing in the complex and often confusing contours of modern life. Utilizing a robust theology of vocation, a coherent biblical framework and a transforming pedagogy of interactive dialogue, Reintegrate has the potential to truly change your life. I highly recommend it!”

Reintegrate Your Vocation with God’s Mission, written by CCO staff member Bob Robinson
Bob Robinson ministers to students at Kent State's Stark campus, Stark State College, and Malone University. On Labor Day 2012, Bob launched The Center to Reintegrate Faith, Life, and Vocations, a non-profit that equips God's people to reintegrate the Christian faith with their vocations. Reintegrate is the partner ministry with CCO to reach college students in the Canton, Ohio area.
“Having planted a new church, I felt God had called me to reach the next generation with the good news of Jesus Christ,” says Bob “I started working with other pastors in my town that were also seeking to reach young adults and college students. It was then that one of these pastors recommended I talk with the CCO about my vision and passion for reaching this group. I was intrigued by the holistic approach to ministry that the CCO uses, helping students understand that they have a very real, immediate role to play in God's reconciliation with the world. Young people were encouraged, empowered, and emboldened to transform the world. I was humbled and overjoyed to become part of such a marvelous ministry.”
