Personal Growth

Hear from engaging speakers and make a defining memory


Samuel Rai

Samuel Rai was raised in a Bhutanese refugee camp in Nepal for the first fifteen years of his life. His father died when he was young and his mother remarried. Discord in the family led to Samuel living in India for one and a half years before coming to Louisville, Kentucky, with the help of Kentucky Refugee Ministries on November 19, 2009.

After Samuel came to Louisville, he began working among fellow refugees with members of several churches in the area. He now collaborates with Refuge Louisville, Inc. to reach refugee young people and their families through youth and family ministry, and he also trains and leads interns and volunteers who are helping with the outreach of Refuge Louisville. He finished his Bachelor of Science, focusing on global education, and is continuing his studies for a Master.

Currently, Samuel is serving at Clarkston International Bible Church as a Mission Coordinator, where he trains men and women to do cross-cultural works in their neighborhoods and abroad. He lives in Atlanta with his wife Priscilla and his son Amos. Having been born and brought up in a refugee camp, Samuel understands the plight of refugees and the need for indigenous leaders.

Global Community

Meet and make new friends from over 70 nations through our social events



This special event will give you the chance to meet and have fun with other students from around the world. Show off your karaoke skills, play group games, or sit down with a new friend for coffee. There is something for everyone at Community Night.


Celebrate the New Year with people from over 70 different countries the Vision Conference way! You’ll experience an international Talent Show leading up to midnight, followed by a dance party highlighting music from around the world.


Spend one afternoon of the conference visiting downtown Atlanta. You will have the choice to visit the Georgia Aquarium (the largest aquarium in North America) or various other places downtown, including the World Of Coke and the Centennial Olympic Park.

Spiritual Conversations

Explore and learn about God, the Bible, and life's big questions in an open environment



Alongside all-conference events, a large part of the Vision Conference experience is within Tracks. Tracks help you grow, build community, and learn more about God in an environment designed specifically for your cultural background. 

Your Track meets each day to participate in small discussion groups so that you can share and grow together on your spiritual journey. You will meet with other students and scholars who share common stories, common culture, and in many cases, a common language.

Click the buttons below or the dropdown menu at the top of the page to learn more about the various Tracks. 

My favorite part about the conference is that diversity is appreciated and valued at a level I had never experienced before. As an international student, I used to think cultural differences were barriers. But at Vision they are treasured and are being protected and advocated.
