The Center for Vocational Ministry assists students who are sensing God leading them to vocational ministry, by helping them clarify their calling and qualify their giftedness. We serve students by:
- Linking them with a CVM mentor who will journey with them as they prepare for ministry.
- Assisting them with refining their giftedness within the Body of Christ.
- Helping them better understand their own story so they can minister more effectively.
Many individuals in pastoral ministry can affirm the significance and influence of one-on-one mentoring in their initial exploration of vocational ministry. Students sensing a call to vocational ministry are often faced with many questions and concerns that they do not have the answers to, or simply find themselves needing support in the process. With this in mind, CVM places primary importance on providing students with the opportunity for intentional mentoring relationships. Our mentors journey with students as they discern their calling in the world.CVM pastor-mentors have experience in pastoral ministry and have a heart for service toward students who are exploring ministry as vocation.

Student Pastor Forums
Student Pastor Forums allow students to have one-on-one time with a local pastor in a small-group setting. This fosters an environment in which students have access to a primary source to hear about and discuss relative issues, as well as ask pertinent questions about pastoral ministry.
Vocational Discernment Events
CVM seeks to utilize and engage many different voices and perspectives in these dialogues, and is committed to helping those who sense a call to vocational ministry see that call become a reality. Throughout the school year, we offer opportunities and events for further exploration, including ministry-focused discussion panels, guest speakers, and workshops.
