Calvin LifeWork

Live what you love

God inspires your passions. Where will those passions take you?

Calvin LifeWork prepares you for life after college, from your career to your relationships to your overall success in this fast-paced, ever-changing world. Whatever God is calling you to, we'll help you dive right in!

What you'll learn

Your journey will cover four main areas:

icon

Vocation

Discover what God is calling you to do, and who he is calling you to be. Realize you have gifts that will transcend your career; gifts that you can use at all times for God's kingdom.

Career Readiness

Most of us will spend much of our adult life working. Whether you are planning to go to grad school or get hired right after college, we'll help you pursue your career path with both passion and purpose.

Financial Literacy and Life Skills

Bills, rent, budgeting. Relationships, conflict resolution, making a big move. No matter what intimidates you about the adult world, we'll equip you to thrive in these areas.

Leadership Development

Be a leader not only in your field of work and study, but in your church and in your community. Your voice matters, and we’ll make sure you know how to use it to lead with conviction.
