    If you are considering the ministry, there are two mistakes to avoid.

    The first is taking up a calling that isn’t yours. The second is neglecting one that is.

    Discerning Your Call to Ministry will help you know the difference. A tool for seminary students, pastors-in-training, and even current pastors, it serves to confirm or prompt deep thought about the calling to ministry through 10 probing questions, including:

    ·         Do you desire the ministry?

    ·         Does your church affirm your calling?

    ·         Do you love the people of God?

    ·         Are you willing to surrender?

    Pastoral dropout rates are high, and seminary admission rates are declining—signs that many of us don’t quite know what we’re signing ourselves up for. Author Jason Allen, a former pastor and the president of North America’s fastest growing seminary, gives readers a better picture of the calling. Presenting a series of diagnostic questions informed by Scripture, church history, and his own experience, he helps those seeking ordination or ministry positions make confident decisions about their service to God, one way or the other.
