Many sincere Christians are confused about their call to ministry. Some are zealous and run ahead of their time and season of training while others are behind their time neglecting the gift of God within them. The Call of God gives practical instructions for pastors and leaders to refine and further develop their ministry and tips on how to nourish and develop others.
