I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus

Philippians 3:14 

Is God calling you?

It’s the foundational question that must be answered by anyone considering entry into ministry or mission’s leadership and then revisited regularly over a lifetime. God is calling out a new generation of kingdom leaders out of Oklahoma who will accelerate the fulfillment of the Great Commission in this generation. The Call Conference will help students cut to the heart of the matter and give them tools to work through the call process. Join us for… THE CALL Conference.
