Callings Conference

at George Fox University

May 3-5, 2024

What is the Callings Conference?

The Callings Conference (formerly Theologia) is a weekend experience designed for current high school students to explore their sense of calling and discover their God-given talents.

Hosted by the School of Theology, Callings is an event for high schoolers to explore identity, career paths and their educational future on the beautiful George Fox campus.

As a participant, you’ll experience a taste of college life for a weekend. The event includes passionate worship gatherings, engaging conversations with current faculty and college students, close-up experiences with individual departments in “learning labs,” and activities across George Fox’s campus.

You can “try on” a major and see how it fits to discern your calling. As a Christ-centered community, George Fox is committed to helping students, like you, discover how Jesus is the answer to the biggest questions of identity, purpose and belonging.

Participants may qualify for a $1,000 annual visit experience scholarship, pending admission to George Fox University for the 2024-25 and 2025-26 academic years.
