How are you preparing students for lasting, effective ministry?

For all high-school and college students who have sensed a call from God on their lives for a vocation in ministry.  Youth ministry staff and volunteer youth workers are encouraged to attend.

SURRENDER (The Called Retreat) is a unique event designed for high school and college students who sense that God has called them into some type of vocational ministry.


  • GROUND students in their calling,
  • DEVELOP them as current and future ministers and
  • CONNECT them with peers and mentors in ministry.

Attendees will understand how to prayerfully evaluate God's will, prepare for difficult obstacles, develop a deep and abiding relationship with God, expect sacrifice, commit to unquestionable purity, and set a course toward faithful fulfillment of their purpose.

They will also have intimate connection groups led by ministry specialists in pastoring, student ministry, worship leading, children's ministry, church education, and missions.
