    Baptist brothers (and sisters),

    Tomorrow I will be ordained into the Pastoral Ministry at my local Baptist church where I serve as Youth Pastor/Associate Pastor. I am beyond excited about the opportunity to serve the Lord with the gifts He has given me. I humbly ask for your prayers at this hour. With my excitement comes a healthy fear of serving the Lord well and helping shepherd His flock on this side of paradise. I do not post much on this board but do enjoy reading your material. I seek advice and counsel from men of God. Any words of advice and encouragement are deeply and affectionately appreciated.

    -Your Brother in Christ,
    Garrett R.

    Congrats. Excitement and healthy fear are normal. I hope you never lose either.

    I was in the pastoral/preaching ministry (ordained) for 10 years and I came to the conclusion through experiences, supplication, prayer and fasting that a teaching ministry was my true calling.

    It was a struggle.

    The 2 most important passages of Scripture:

    James 3:1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

    1 Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
