Vision and Mission

Vision Statement

The National Religious Vocation Conference has a vision to set the world ablaze with the fire of God’s love through the prophetic, joyful witness of religious sisters, brothers, and priests as radical disciples of Jesus.

Mission Statement

The National Religious Vocation Conference is a catalyst for vocation discernment and the full flourishing of religious life as sisters, brothers, and priests for the ongoing transformation of the world.

Purpose

To accomplish its mission, the National Religious Vocation Conference, in collaboration with its members and strategic partners, provides professional development, advocacy, education, resources, and networking opportunities to support vocation ministry and religious life.

Values

In presenting religious life as a viable, prophetic option that remains mystery and gift, the NRVC seeks to:

  1. Provide professional development, best practices, and shared wisdom to animate the elements of vocation ministry: encounter, invitation, and accompaniment;
  2. Foster a culture of vocations in a spirit of collaboration, joy, and hope to inspire and be inspired by the minds and hearts of the young church;
  3. Celebrate the charism of each Catholic religious institute as part of the mission of Jesus; and
  4. Grow and nurture an intercultural approach to vocation ministry.

Strategic Goals 2019-2023

  • Enhance collaborative efforts for engaging the culturally diverse young church in discerning and impacting the future of religious life.
  • Provide leading-edge resources, formation, and research to advance the field of intercultural vocation ministry, assessment skills, and discernment to religious life.
  • Increase the visibility and awareness of the NRVC to fulfill our mission. 
  • Create the organizational structure and financial model needed to sustain and grow NRVC.
