Dont build your ministry trying to be like this preacher or that preacher.



Get in the Word and get alone with God.



Volume doesnt = annointing


Follow the Truth in the Word wherever it takes you.


God will put people in your life to help encourage and edify you...you dont have to always agree with them but respect goes a long way.


Put yourself on a path where you have a lot of contact with people...God loves them and if you will yield to Him He will use you to speak to those people.


When it comes to the hand of God moving in your life there are very few true
coincidences...can and will have some of the most random encounters that will open up so many doors to minister and be ministered to.


Pray to be able to see opportunity. Dont automatically assume that opportunity isnt there because you dont see it yet.


Be humble or be humbled.


Be honest with what you dont know.


The ministry of reconciliation is important to Him...and the goodness of God draws men to repentence...look for ways to embody that goodness...that right there will open more doors for ministry than anything.


The average person you meet couldnt care less about "churchisms". Drop the lingo and the filler and be real.


Being real means being honest with your faults and struggles...people need to hear what God has helped you with and IS helping you with.


Dont embellish or slant scripture out of context...lying is still a sin and you dont get a pass cause the end justifies the means.


The "annointing" is the Spirit of God resting upon you...you have your own annointing...dont chase anyone elses...it doesnt work that way.


Know what you believe and why you believe it.


Surround yourself with ministers of proven character...people that wont just tell you what you want to hear.


Anyways....take that for what its worth...or not lol Its only a religious forum with a bunch of crazy strangers. 😁

The noun "minister" means "servant." The verb "to minister" means "to serve."

For over half a century I have "served God" or "ministered" in various ways. Some times it was preaching from a pulpit. Some times it was teaching publicly. Some times it was praying for someone personally one on one or some times not even near them physically but praying for them. Some times it was speaking an encouraging word. Some times it was giving them money to pay a doctor bill or to pay for a prescription. Some times it was bringing groceries to them. Some times it was buying them a meal. Some times it was taking them in my vehicle and letting them practice driving and parking and taking their test for a driver's license.

Ministry comes in many forms. I believe we serve God by serving people, and the people we serve are not always God's people.

I believe this elder has passed on. However, he left these words of wisdom behind. Maybe they will help.

If Jesus calls us to follow and we dont...can we really be right with Him? I get what you are saying...Im just wondering if our disobedience to His calling is detrimental to our relationship with Him.

Yes best advice is don’t ask advice on a forum with people that you have no idea who they are.

Re: Anybody got advice on being called to preach

Every Christian is called to preach. That is to proclaim Christ. Do you have a burning desire to present every man perfect in Christ? To bring them to the full stature of Jesus?

If not you are not ready. Continue seeking God. Pulpit Preachers are a dime a dozen. Do you witness to those around you? Do any street ministry?

This is more exciting than to preach to other believers safe within the walls of a Church building.
