Am I Called to Preach?

August 29, 2013

“Am I called to preach?”

On occasion a young man will come into my office asking that very question or one similar to it, like, “How would I know if God is calling me to preach?”

If you are wrestling with this question or know of someone who is, let me recommend a resource to help.

In 2008 my former pastor held a workshop designed to help young men answer the question “Am I called to preach?” In addition to 3 audio sessions and handouts in which the topic is handled biblically and pastorally, there is a helpful bibliography on the call to preach along with Matthew Henry’s Self-Examination for Ordination.

Question: What other resources have you found helpful in answering the question “Am I called to preach?”
