The Institute for Church Professions (ICP) is a response to the needs of local congregations, the church and the world.
The following initiatives are the result of the institute:
*Calling 21 a young adult local church internship program for college students as they discern their vocation. Students are trained on the Shenandoah University campus before spending their summer immersed in the life of a church. It is a partnership ministry between the Virginia United Methodist conference center for clergy excellence, the cabinet and Shenandoah University. http://www.calling21.org/
*Launch is a retreat held every other year at Shenandoah University. This retreat calls youth and young adults to experience God through creation. Participants are challenged to step out of their comfort zones by waking early to watch the sun rise over the mountains and exploring the river.
The Institute for Church Professions is located on the lower level of Goodson Chapel & Recital Hall
