A local church plan for helping a person recognize and confirm their call to ministry
Carlos J Sibley
This project aims to develop a plan for how a local church can help a person recognize and confirm their call to vocational ministry. This discernment process for determining a person's call to ministry involves both inward/private and outward/public activity. The plan is developed primarily from information gleaned from interviews with twenty-five vocational ministers. Answers that describe ways outside influence helped them discern their call to ministry is organized into a process labeled Discerning Ministry as a Vocation which includes four specific actions on behalf of influencers in a person's community of faith: intentionality, opportunities, accessibility, and affirmation.
