    The Call to Ministry

    An experience one has that is understood as a direct communication from God asking or
    directing that he or she to take up a task of some kind.

    Are you called?

    In the most basic sense, all Christians are called to ministry. The Great Commission applies
    to all believers. Every Christian is part of the Body of Christ. Fulfilling one’s role as part of
    the Body – no matter what that role is – means ministering to others. This is your purpose
    and calling. Before we even existed, God had plans for us.
    Jeremiah 1:5 NLT “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were
    born, I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
    When you receive Salvation, your calling is activated. How you are called will generally be
    revealed later.
    Matthew 28:18-20 NLT “Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in
    heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in
    the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all
    the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of
    the age.”

    to vocational ministry, such as the pastorate. This is an excellent question. Certainly,
    vocational ministry has unique demands. The following are some guidelines to help you find
    out what your purpose and calling are
