Is God Calling You to Christian Ministry?
The Holy Spirit gives to every baptized Christian a place in the church, the Body of Christ. Some among us are called to be clergy -- professional spiritual leaders of the church, who are trained and set apart with licensing or ordination to serve and evangelize the world through the local church. If you think God may be calling you to be a pastor or other church professional, this page will link you up with the information you need.
