Nourishing Vocation Project

The Nourishing Vocation Project (NVP) is a four-phase experience that invites individual participants and whole congregations to deepen their understanding of God’s call upon their life and work so that they might more intentionally live life on purpose and engage in ministry on purpose for the common good. NVP is part of the Thriving Congregations Initiative through Lilly Endowment Inc.
