Beholding His Glory ~ Pastor Bill Slabaugh, Grace Baptist Church

Ephesians 4:11-13 ~ The Pastor-Teacher’s Calling ~ Pastor Bill Slabaugh

October 21, 2019

When a man is called to vocational pastoral ministry, there is both an inward call and an outward call. The inner call is the result of the continuing drawing or the eliciting power of the Holy Spirit which in time brings an individual closer to the church’s outward call to ministry. So there is both an inward call of the Holy Spirit and an outward call by the Church. My hope is that this message will help the man who is sensing God’s call and considering pastoral ministry as a vocation--as well as the church who is prayerfully considering calling a pastor.
