“Calling” in Recruitment?

I’ve done a lot of recruitment in my time. Competence was usually the most important thing we looked for (if not the only thing). After all we don’t want to hire incompetent staff. But I now wonder if we placed too much emphasis on competence alone. Perhaps we should also recruit based on calling.

The Essence of the Christian Life – Video

Jesus has given Himself to you, and He’s called you to know Him. In a manner of speaking, this is all He’s called you to do: to look at Him, to hear Him, to touch Him, to know Him. Everything else – every part of the Christian life and holiness and compassion for the world and vision and ministry work – everything else comes out of this. Everything else comes from Him. This is the core reality of the Christian life and of Christian ministry. And this is the meaning of staff development in a Christian organization.

At the time I didn't know what to call it, but since then a couple of researchers have identified and named it Moralistic Therapeutic Deism. "What the heck is that?" you ask. It happens to be a preferred religion of Westen culture, which usually (and tragically) goes by the name Christianity.
