The Defining Moments High School Experience invites rising high school juniors and seniors to actively consider a call to ordained ministry.

Students explore their call to ordained ministry by

  • identifying the ways in which they have heard God speaking
  • imagining what a call to ministry might look like in their lives
  • exploring a variety of ministry settings
  • engaging the scriptural, theological and practical aspects of ministry
  • interacting with young clergy mentors, preachers, worship leaders, and college professors
  • mapping the path of their spiritual journey - past, present, and future

The High School cohort will begin with a 5-day event on campus event at Emory & Henry College. Participants will spend time remembering their spiritual journeys, hearing the call stories of ordained clergy, digging into the Sermon on the Mount with college professors, worshiping, and forming relationships with other youth who are on the same journey.

The cost of the year-long HIGH SCHOOL program:

Regular Registration (through June 30, 2017) - $150
