Jack Answered:

Thank you for sharing your calling with us, brother Rorlins. However, both in the Scripture as well as in the History of the Church, we find that those who have a calling are usually commended by a local church that recognizes their gifts and walks with them while they find their place of service.

You will notice, for example, how Paul and Barnabus received their call while serving as teachers and leaders in a local congregation (Acts 13). The call was recognized by their colleagues who then separated them for ministry. It is interesting and instructive to see how the Lord guided them and provided for their needs.

To win a half million people to Jesus is a magnificant vision. However, I would assume that the Lord will call you to begin with a humble ministry in a local church as you learn to share the Gospel, love people, disciple new Christians, and learn from those who are more mature. As the Lord begins to call you into wider ministry He will in turn begin to supply your needs. I would assume that while you are growing into your ministry in a local congregation you will also have opportunities to take advantage of biblical and theological training.

May you follow your call and bow under His guidance and discipline, brother Rorlins. I wish you well.

Blessings on you.

Jack
