Am I Called?
Each week all over the world, there are men – often younger but sometimes middle aged or beyond – who earnestly wrestle with a nagging question. They have dreams and drives. They query friends, consult pastors, exhaust mentors, and sometimes even apply to Bible schools and seminaries – all to discover the answer to the question that refuses to be ignored:
“Am I called to preach, to plant or pastor,…am I called to ministry?”
God has entrusted the future of the church to these men and the future of these men to the church. Therefore, we thought any effort aimed at helping them discern their call, and providing some ongoing training in ministry, would be valued by most and strategic for all.
But that’s not all. Each week there are men approaching ministry, or already there, who want to know what it means to build churches that last.
An idea was born. What if there was a credible website curated by an experienced pastor dedicated to helping men, their pastors and their church in this exciting journey? What if there was a resource that would help some resolve the question of planting or pastoring and free them to serve contentedly in other roles within their local church? What if there was a site available to bible schools, training schools, mission agencies and seminaries that would serve potential applicants, so that the right men enter the right programs, and then graduate to start ministries that last? What if there was a domain which could speed men along in their journey to settle the questions, “Am I called to ministry?” Or, What does it mean to remain fruitful in ministry?
