|I ran across this tonight, and found it to be a very good message on Pastoring and ministry.
This is a video clip of an excellent sermon preached by Pastor Mark Driscoll for Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Washington.
Although it’s rewarding work to be in church ministry, it’s not for the faint at heart. I’m sure most pastors and staff members would echo my next statement… If you can do anything else other than be in ministry – DO IT! RUN NOW WHILE YOU HAVE A CHANCE! Just kidding! If you are called, you’re called. God doesn’t repent for calling you. Always remember, what you are doing for the Body of Christ is a calling, not a job. If you are contemplating church ministry, and you remember that, you’ll do just fine.
