Matthew 22:14;For many are called but few are chosen (KJV)
Some people are called in a spectacular way.Paul was on the road to Damascus when he had his calling.
Only few people have been called in this spectacular way according to Acts 9:3-6. known ministers like Bishop Charles Agyinasare,Bishop David Oyedepo and Kenneth Hagan had this kind of calling too.
Others are called in an ordinary manner. 1st Kings 19:11-12 they experience a still small voice that speaks to them.
And others are also called through their desires. The Son of Bishop Charles Agyinasare, who is Rev Selassie Agyinasare had a burning desire to work for God and that desire led to his calling. Reference to deire is 1st Timothy 3:1
Things to know:
1.Everyone can be a lay minister Hebrews 5:12
2.This can enhance the work of church planting
3.It is possible to do your secular work and still be in ministry just like Priscilla and Aquila in the Bible they were tent makers and also Paul.
4.Lay pastors can be just as faithful as full time pastors
You do not need a special skill to work for God. You just need to know what you have been called for according to Ephesians 4:11
We have all been equipped for the work of ministry, we have been called to fruitfulness John 15:16
