Vocation in Christian Ministry

Pursuing a vocation in Christian ministry is a definite journey.  Many who pursue this field may feel a particular calling or interest in this area.  If you are considering the ministry for your life’s work, but don’t know exactly what you want to do or how you wish to serve, you are very normal!  I am currently working on my Master of Divinity at Truett Seminary and many of us that are in the process of obtaining a degree there are also journeying to discover God’s plan for our lives.

One area to begin with is thinking about your natural talents and gifts.  I believe God instills certain gifts and abilities in each of us to serve Him and pursuing a vocation in ministry is yet another avenue to use those giftings.  Are you musically gifted?  Gifted in working with children?  Is finance your area?  Do you like to write?  What about speaking in front of groups?  These are just a few of multitudes of options for pursuing this field.  Churches offer a plethora of opportunities for full-time work in ministry, but they are only one example of environments for ministry to take place.

Seek out mentors you respect who can serve as spiritual advisors.  These people could include pastors or other church leaders or also people whose faith you greatly admire and respect.  Many times hearing about their journeys can help you see more about the path you are on.

Also, if there is a specific area tugging at your heart, see if you can spend some with people that work in that particular field.  Spending the day with someone doing what you may be interested in, can help you see if that spot is for you.  Also, be aware that your journey can change.  You may enter ministry in a certain capacity and journey into different roles as you go along.  This is all part of the process.

Above all, spend time with God.  As you stay connected with your Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer, your path may be made even more clear and in your unknowing you will find rest.
