What is Hear the Call?
Hear the Call is for adults who are exploring a personal call to join God in global mission. Participants will interact with global servants and staff of International Ministries who will answer questions, address misconceptions and help attendees evaluate their call. Worship, inspirational messages, Bible study and personal reflection time all combine to make this a powerful discernment experience.

By the end of the weekend, participants will have a clear conception of the next steps in the process and a deeper understanding of the culture and missiology of International Ministries.

5:00 PM, Saturday, July 11 through 9:00 PM, Monday, July 13 (Central time)
