I ask a lot of pastors this question.  Unfortunately, the vast majority have never really given the question much consideration. They just are a pastor. Most because their father or mother was; some because they grew up in the church and liked their pastor; some because they couldn’t make it in any other profession.

But here is the kicker, the clearer and more laser-like a pastor’s call is and why they are in ministry the more likely they are to be fruitful.

So before going any further take time to tell me why you are in ministry and how, when you turn 70 years of age, you will know if you have fulfilled it.
