Hope and Disappointment in the Midst of God’s Call

DATE: June 15-21, 2019

LOCATION: InterVarsity’s Cedar Campus, Cedarville, MI

DESCRIPTION: We will wrestle with real questions surrounding God’s call in our lives – everything from His presence in our daily tasks to broader vocational discernment. In plenary sessions, faculty panels, and a variety of seminars, we will consider the breadth of our life experiences – including success & failure, hope & disappointment, scarcity & abundance. We will also explore what it means to work out our sense of God’s call in a diverse and often complex context, casting a hopeful, Christ-centered vision of flourishing within higher education and beyond.
