People become aware of their gifts and God’s call in various ways. Some become aware in a critical moment in life. Some are urged by others in the church to consider their call. Some struggle for years with their call and their circumstances. A vital component of becoming aware of God’s call occurs when rostered ministers and congregational members encourage particular individuals to explore a vocational calling to pastoral or diaconal ministry.
If you are interested in exploring a call to serve God through the ELCIC, or if you have questions about the process, please be in contact with the Office of the BC Synod Bishop at firstname.lastname@example.org.
