Calling 21 is a Young Adult, Local Church Internship Program. It is a partnership ministry among the Virginia Conference Center for Clergy Excellence, the Cabinet, and Shenandoah University. The purpose of the program is for college students to explore their calling. It is conference-wide, grass roots, congregation-based, youth-focused approach to the Virginia Conference’s emerging culture of call. These students spend a summer immersed in the life of a local church, not their own, discerning God’s call on their lives, and experiencing the diverse church communities in Virginia.

Welcome to the Rappahannock River District!
We are 74 United Methodist congregations with one uniting vision. Our congregations, ministry settings, and people are very diverse but our passion is to Make Disciples.
We seek to Make Disciples through four entry points: Unity, Spiritual Formation, Empowering Our Laity, and through Mission ministry in our neighborhoods, throughout our Conference, and around the world. We value lay and clergy as equal and effective partners in ministry.
Most importantly, we invite you to connect with one of our congregations of ministries to grow deeper in faith and to transform the world for Jesus Christ.
