How did God call you to the ministry?
I went to college to study premed with the intention of becoming a doctor. After my sophomore year in college, I became concerned for the teenagers that I was ministering to at summer camp. God changed my desire from helping to heal bodies to helping heal souls. I surrendered to the ministry and have been in ministry ever since.
For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined. He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it. – Titus 1:7-9
Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. – 1 Timothy 3:8-10
