The Candidacy Committee is happy to assist you if you are seeking to discern whether God may be calling you to vocational pastoral ministry. The following documents may be helpful:
- “Ten Ways to Discern a Call to Ordained Ministry” – this document can help you think about how you hear God’s call
- “Characteristics of an Effective Pastor” – this document can help you consider if your gifts and interests match those needed in ordained ministry
- “Suggested Reading List” – this document offers a list of books which you can sample to see if you enjoy the discipline of reading material in which pastors would be expected to be interested
Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be referred to a pastor near you with whom you can probe into this matter.
