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 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!


  • Discover how God has designed you.
  • Engage in activities that demonstrate your unique combination of strengths, gifts, values, and interests.
  • Learn what skills are valuable in the modern world of work.
  • Interact with professionals who are experts in their fields.
  • Tour Greenville-based businesses and see various occupations firsthand.
  • Grow spiritually through devotions and Bible challenges.
