Called to Serve

As a high schooler, you can experience a call to ministry!

When you sense one, you need to explore it and have good conversations about it. Find someone ASAP to mentor/disciple you in your calling. This could be your pastor, a youth pastor, a church member who is a good role model, or a missionary you have met. You can have more than one—anyone you want to learn from can be a mentor.



Start investigating. How do you love to serve in your church and community? What are you good at? What brings you joy?


Ask someone who does what you would enjoy doing in the community or in church if you can work with them to learn what they do. Ask your pastor where help is needed.
