Unsure which career or ministry to pursue? Feeling pressure to figure out a college major? Join the club! Most high school students don’t have this figured out yet.

Part self-discovery and part career exploration, the Career & Calling EDUcamp is designed to help you to assess where God may want you to work and serve in life and then know how to get there. Our team of life coaches will help you discover how God has designed you – your strengths, gifts, values, and interests.

Field trips to local employers and interviews with experts in their profession will expose you to the world of work and the many diverse career opportunities available to you. We will help you put all of this together and make your plan for taking the next steps toward your future!
