Product Description

If you are considering the ministry, there are two mistakes you must avoid. The first is taking up a calling that isn't yours. The second is neglecting one that is.

Dr. Jason Allen's Discerning Your Call to Ministry offers an experienced, thoughtful guide on what it means to serve God in ministry. 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 up for. 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.

    Dr. Allen has written an incredibly useful guide to making sense of a call to ministry. Drawing mainly from 1 Timothy 3:1-7 as well as personal experience from being the president of a seminary, Allen constructs 10 questions that must be answered by anyone feeling that they are called to Christian ministry. What is particularly helpful in this book is the distinction that the author makes about what it means to be called to ministry. He uses three phrases: called to minister, called to ministry, called to the ministry. Every Christian is called to minister, in that he or she has been tasked to carry out the Great Commission to make disciples. This call is not only for pastors but for every person who professes faith in Christ. Some have discerned a call to ministry, in that he or she is compelled to serve or aid in the work of ministry, such as secretarial or serving positions. Only a select few does God call to the ministry, or specifically administering the word of God. This involves preaching and teaching as well as pastoring as qualified in passages such as 1 Timothy 3:1-7. This latter call is what this book is all about. Allen communicates clearly and concisely in keeping with the teachings in Scripture. If you are considering work in ministry, you need to read this book. I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
