Here are now what I see as definitive criteria for determining a call to ministry.

Charles Spurgeon identified the first sign of God's call to the ministry as "an intense, all-absorbing desire for the work." Those called by God sense a growing compulsion to preach and teach the Word, and to minister to the people of God.
This sense of compulsion should prompt the believer to consider whether God may be calling to the ministry. This book teaches that the call to pastoral ministry should be decided with Biblical, prayerful, and communal thought. It teaches that there is both a subjective and an objective aspect to discerning this call.5/5(15).

Clowney argues that before we start asking questions about a call to ministry, we must first understand our fundamental calling as s: However, when people ask about a "call to ministry," they usually mean a calling to serve in vocational ministry as a job, serving as a pastor, missionary, Bible teacher, or other Christian ministry role.
