Called To Be A Pastor?

How does someone know whether they is called to being a pastor or not? Here are some interesting diagnostics from several giants of the faith.

from Charles Spurgeon:

  • An intense, all-absorbing desire for the work
  • There must be aptness to teach and some measure of the other qualities needed
  • He must see a measure of conversion work going on under his efforts
  • It should be made known to them by the prayerful judgment of his church

from John Newton:

  • A warm and earnest desire to be employed in this service
  • Some competent sufficiency as to gifts, knowledge and utterance
  • A correspondent opening in Providence, by a gradual train of circumstances pointing out the means, the time, and the place — of actually entering upon the work

Andy Stanley "Communicating for a Change" it's a must read.

Sadly, I know of one pastor for whom I could check off eight out of ten concerns. Sadder still, he is/was not open to constructive criticism, even if given in love. Saddest of all, it took the church years before they finally recognized the fallout of the concerns listed.

Thanks for that contribution and addition!

How To Get Your husband Back,Love Spells That Really Work Fast

My name is Natalie Vanheers from the United States of America and am here to share a testimony i would please want you to read careful. I was married for seventeen years until misfortune came in. My husband and i were living happily with our children and enjoyed the company of each other. Our eldest daughter eloped with her boyfriend and this cost my husband his job because he could no longer concentrate on his job and this almost tore our home apart. My husband lost his job and we were living on the little income i was making from my cabbage. This really tormented our home cos my husband loves her more than our other kids. I tried all i could do to make my husband happy even when i wasn't happy. This happened for sometime and he had cardiac arrest. We spent virtually all the money we had and still the condition did not improve. I was left with no choice than to sell the stuffs in our house, I was able to realise some money which was spent on his medical bills. I did this for a while until we had no money on us again. We came home and was hoping he could get better. He continued like that for some months and we decided to seek for solution else where. I went online where i met many self acclaimed doctors and spell casters but none could help. I then came across this particular caster whose testimonies i have read. His name is Dr.Brave he promised to help and he did in a way i find very surprising to explain. He told me that he would cast some spells to make my daughter come back and to get my husband his job back. It was like an impossible task. But with the help and intervention of this prophet of GOD, my daughter came back home and saw her dad was sick and she cried and asked for forgiveness. My husband after a week became whole again and another spell was cast to get him his job back. Like a dream it happened. My daughter is back home and my loving husband is well again and now has his job back. So good people of the world i want you to help me in saying a big thank you to Dr.Brave for his intervention. This is one Dr i will seriously recommend for anyone with issues of such nature or any other problem. Simply contact him on his email via,or kindly visit he website .
