The Calling Weekend 

Have you been called to the ministry? If so, make plans to attend an amazing, life-changing, power-packed and informative weekend in January of 2025. Dates TBA.

CALLING…..a strong inner impulse toward a particular course of action especially when accompanied by conviction of divine influence

The Calling was born out of a desire and responsibility to mentor young adults or “twenty-somethings,” who have accepted God’s call into vocational ministry. The second weekend in January of 2025, a group of these confirmed ministers from various denominations will embark on a mission leading them through intense training and thoughtful discussion designed to equip them to answer this call.

What is The Calling?

The Calling is 3 power-packed days of intensive ministry training with founders Beth and Curt Johnson. Beth and Curt are passionate about pouring into the next generation of ministers and equipping them for the ministry to which they are called. It is a weekend full of worship, prayer, truth, wisdom and impartation.

Topics for the weekend include:

Embracing Your High Calling

Maintaining Integrity: Spiritually, Financially and Physically

The Cost of Your Calling

Effective Altar Calls and Altar Ministry

Convictions over Culture

Your Gender and Your Calling

The Lost Art of Praying Through

The Calling Weekend 2025 is designed specifically for young adults who have received the distinct call from God to live a life of service to Him in ministry through preaching, teaching, evangelizing or pastoring. Space is limited to 20 participants for the weekend. Applicants will be selected by The Calling ministry team and notified shortly after.

Applications must be received no later than Monday, December 11th, 2025. The total cost of The Calling Weekend is $550, which covers all expenses including meals and lodging.

The Ark on Lake Lanier in Gainesville, Georgia is the gathering place for The Calling Weekend. It is a central location, providing ample meeting space and comfortable accommodations, on the shores of one of the most beautiful lakes in the southeast.

Continue the Call

After The Calling Weekend, Beth invites every participant to Continue The Call. She will host a monthly, one-hour zoom session for the year of 2025. During each session, she will discuss a different topic pertaining to life in the ministry. It is Beth's desire to mentor young men and women in ministry that God has connected her to.

Ecclesiastes 4 tells us "that two are better than one..., and a cord of three strands is not quickly broken." Part of the vision of The Calling is to create a network of like-minded people who can provide support, friendship, and share ideas, all with the goal of furthering the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

"It's my hope that every person attending The Calling Weekend leaves feeling assured, competent and affirmed in their calling. Equipped not only with practical skills but also spiritual insight into the ministry."

We're counting down the days!!
