The Call Conference exists to provide students with the time, space and opportunity to explore their call into Christian ministry. This conference is design to help students explore what it means to be called into ministry, to introduce them to some of their peers who are feeling the same leading, and to meet and interact with people who have been in ministry for a while. Through worship, teaching, conversation, and exploration students who come will have the opportunity to further explore God’s call on their life.


  • College-level training and teaching by accredited ministry professors
  • Mentoring and round table discussions with current and former ministry professionals
  • Intense and intimate worship experiences, both modern and ancient
  • Times of personal exploration, reflection, and growth

We are working with NNU to secure on-campus housing, but at this time we cannot guarantee on-campus housing will be available. If it is available, the limited space will be given out on a first come, first served basis.


This conference is specifically designed for juniors and seniors who have been called into ministry in their life or who are exploring whether or not God is calling them. (Exceptions to the grade requirement can be sought by emailing us at thecall@nnu.edu.) Participants will have multiple experiences that will help them assess and hear the voice of God on their lives.
Participants are also invited to bring a MENTOR participant along from their local context. We believe that the deep conversations and exploration that are possible at the Call Conference will be more fully explored as the conversations continue back home. While having a mentor is beneficial, it is not required.


In order to prepare for the conference you will need to:

  • Read Find Your Place (Amazon Link) before attending.
  • Complete the spiritual gifts assessment recommended by the authors at www.giftpassionstory.com. Once it is completed, you will need to email the results to your Mentor (if you have one coming - not required) and conference leadership at thecall@nnu.edu.



If you have questions or need help, please feel free to contact conference support at thecall@nnu.edu.
