Higher Calling Conference is a missions conference for youth and college.

We exist to mobilize and equip the emerging generation to actively take part in fulfilling the Great Commission. We desire to see the next generation living with a missional perspective to make disciples of Jesus everywhere – both home and abroad.


“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”

[Isaiah 43:18,19]

Gather with others who want to bring resurgence in:
life with God, life together, and a life of lasting impact.
