The Confluence

The Confluence hosts an annual weeklong on-campus experience in the summer each year for high school students to gain deeper insight into who they are and the life they want to live as children of God. The Confluence is only one of the many initiatives supported by the work of the Christensen Center for Vocation.


The CONFLUENCE is an experience that empowers young people to be curious about how their personal story, the world’s story, and God’s story flow together to create a loving and just world. Together in community, participants learn how to practice vocational discernment through a variety of experiences including –


  • intentional community building with small groups led by college mentors

  • daily spiritual practices of prayer, journaling, first word, and worship

  • learning how spiritual gifts and strengths inventories can deepen our understanding of the gifts God has us

  • reading books and articles that invite academic inquiry as a way of understanding theology and vocation

  • community based learning in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood and the greater Twin Cities

Our hope is that by the end of the CONFLUENCE, each participant will have gained a deeper insight into who they are and the life they want to lead as children of God. These stories all flow together – it’s simple. JOIN US THIS SUMMER!
