Unless you've had divine providence, most of us don't know exactly where we fit in Ministry. You may feel called to preach, but to whom and where? Do you feel called to work with children or the elderly? Do you feel called to work in a church or in a mission-type ministry? Maybe to be a Chaplain is your call? These are questions I have been asking myself for years, but am still struggling with. There's only one real way to find out, DO IT! Begin with working with children in different age groups, work with the elderly in your church, or volunteer in another area. That's the only way to see if you fit in somewhere. I volunteer in the media department of my church operating a camera to put our services on the internet. I enjoy it, but I feel I need to do more. I'm looking to start working with children in the different age groups to see if that may be where I can be useful and teach the Gospel. If that doesn't work, then I'll try something else. I'm also taking classes in Ministry from a Seminary and have a plan, (as of now), to find a Pastor position somewhere. I would love to be a Pastor at my church, but it doesn't look like any openings are going to be coming up soon. I would love to find an Associate Pastor position at a church so I could do the work and learn under the Senior Pastor at the same time. I don't know where all to look, but I'm looking everywhere.
Enough about me, just try different areas of Ministry to find your place, children, facility maintenance, visitation of nursing homes, driving people to church services, etc. There is a place for everyone. Don't be afraid to try or say, "That's not me". That is the Devil talking to you. He doesn't want to have you on the side of the Lord. He wants you to back away. You only fail if you don't try. If you don't fit, then you know its not your place and continue looking. Its that easy. I've been looking for a long time now and I think I know where I am supposed to be, so I'm going for it. You should too!!
