AM I CALLED TO MINISTRY? by Dr. Faith Fredrick

Updated: Mar 23


Faith Christian University was founded 20 years ago and during that time I have had many students ask, “Dr. Faith, how do I know I’m actually called to the ministry or just have a burden to minister? What is the difference?”

Let me hasten to say, There is a huge difference in having a burden for a ministry and being called to ministry. A burden is when you are moved to compassion and have a desire to serve in some capacity. This happens many times when a person goes on a mission’s trip.

On the other hand, a person may not only feel a burden, but actually have a call to ministry. In this case, the person should go beyond simply supporting the ministry work of others and actually take up their call, becoming a minister, themselves. Whether you have a burden to help and support another ministry or you are called to minister you need to take the following steps:

  • Enroll in a Spirit-filled Bible school

  • Make sure you are taught the Word of God through anointed instructors.

  • Be committed to preparing to effectively fulfill your call.

  • Faithfully serve in another ministry.

The mission of Faith Christian University will Educate, Empower and Equip you for your ministry call.
