Dig is a three week summer program for high school students who have just completed grade 11 or 12. Dig is a program designed to help students uncover their future as they explore how a calling to ministry can be lived out in any vocation. Through authentic, engaging interactions with Calvin Seminary faculty, ministry practitioners, off-campus excursions to ministry sites, small group time, and reflection activities, high school students form a strong community as they explore where God may be leading them next. Dig helps students to better understand their own gifting, and how they can plug back into ministry right after finishing the program.

Next year’s Dig program will take place July 9-27 on Calvin’s campus in Grand Rapids, with excursions to Chicago and Toronto.

All applicants to the Dig program must also be nominated by an adult. The nominator can be a pastor, teacher, counselor, or adult mentor who knows you well. Be sure to receive permission from your nominator before listing their name here. Once you submit your application, your nominator will receive a link to a nomination form they will complete on your behalf.

Your application will be received by our Admissions team. When all of the applications have been collected and processed, we will begin to make decisions regarding the final Dig participants.
