Called to Ministry Track

Does your ministry have collegians who sense a call to ministry?

This year at Collegiate Week, we are introducing a new effort to help students discern a call to ministry and prepare for ministry. The Called to Ministry Track will help college students connect with others who feel this call, receive training that helps them prepare, and connect with mentors from across the ministries of the SBC.

How does the Called To Ministry Track work?
The track will consist of six seminar times and an opening and closing session. Those attending the track will attend the morning and evening worship services with the nearly 1,500 college students attending Collegiate Week. Seminars for the Called to Ministry Track include:

  • Called to Ministry Track Launch – Kick off the week and meet other students called to Ministry

  • Discerning Your Call – How can I know that God is calling me?

  • Finding Your Place in Ministry – Discover your unique gifts and passions and learn how to deploy them in ministry

  • Learn from the Veterans – Round Table Discussion with Veteran Ministry Leaders

  • Missionary Mindset – See every day as a mission opportunity

  • How to Write a Bible Study or Sermon – Learn how to teach others Scripture

  • Why Theology? – Why every Christian should study theology

  • Called to Ministry Track Wrap-Up – Start Strong to Serve Long – How do you start strong in ministry so that you can serve for the long haul? (Striving for Holiness, Marrying Well, Finance Management)
