How Do I Become a Ministry Leader?

Have you heard God’s calling on you to love, serve and lead His people in ministry?  The specific approach may be an unanswered question.  Or you might already be leading others in a specific area of ministry like children and youth, or perhaps reaching out to the poor or running a marriage and family ministry. 

You are a leader and desire to serve others as they serve the Lord, but you may feel the need for more.  You might desire a theological foundation for your experiences of God.  You might feel the need to gain more knowledge in all areas of ministry such that you see it in context with your own. While you and others may not see your gifting as senior pastor, there is an internal and external call to significantly grow the Kingdom.  With all the diverse ways to serve the Lord, it’s your hope that you would know a little more about all the areas, while at the same time dive into the area of ministry God has placed on your heart.
