Four Signs that God Might be Calling You into Full-time Ministry


1. A Profound Impression from God

When considering whether or not you feel called to ministry, check to see the genuineness of your passion for the things of God whether you expect some benefits in return or just a genuine love for souls.

2. Confirmation from others:
I have a friend in the ministry whom I have known for years. He loves God and he is anointed he is not a lazy man. One thing I know is that, God will not put grace in you and expect you not to profit it for the furtherance of his kingdom. I told him to start from somewhere. Thank God he did.

If something similar has happened to you, and others have commented on your life in a way that seems to direct you toward the ministry, that’s a very good sign that you’re probably called to go into full time ministry.

3. Reoccurring Thoughts for Ministry
Sometimes God will put something in your mind and continue feeding it back into you until you decide to do something about it. This is actually a strategy God tells us to use in Luke 18, when he uses the parable of “The Persistent Widow”.

This is something that has happened to me, consistently, for the past two/three years. I just couldn’t stop thinking about ministry. It just kept popping into my head over and over again. Even after surrendering to God’s call, it’s still always in the back of my mind.

If ministry is something you can’t stop thinking about, it’s very likely God’s calling you to ministry.
If ministry is something you can’t stop thinking about, it’s very likely God’s calling you to ministry.


4. A Passion for the Job
The final indicator for a call to ministry is a deep-rooted passion for the type of ministry God’s calling you. That could be missional work, pastoral work, church administrative work, worship ministry, or any other position in the light of ministry leadership.

If this sounds like you, and you have a genuine love for what God is calling you to, that’s a strong indicator that you’re being called to full time ministry.

5. Visions and dreams:
I have had personal encounters in dreams and in those encounters I would see myself standing before multitude preaching the gospel and in some I will be laying hands on people and I see them receiving their deliverance. Though I am not into a full time ministry but I am actively involved. Your dreams are expression of what should be your realities sometimes. So please pay attention to your dreams and seek for God's direction.

Please stop feeding people with these lies about your "ministry" cons using the name of Jesus Christ. undecided

To everyone who is called by Jesus Christ to the Kingdom of God is the same work given.... and the judgment that awaits all the same. Every man is called to obedience and doing that which Jesus Christ did and even more. All are called equals with the same job to do and the same end goal to accomplish in the end - do that which Jesus Christ did and more. All who fall short of that goal have themselves to blame. undecided

He is first and genuine child of God and then he have the fruit and the gift of the holy spirit . You see bah, I am one of those who will not rush people into that idea of starting up a ministry. Because so many people rush into it because they felt it's another option for survival. Hence many may have be called but few are chosen.

You are correct we are all commissioned as believers but some are called into the assignment of propagating the Gospel full time. Perhaps they would be pioneers of a vision and while others follows to support the vision.

This is not an opinion but a fact based on the Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ Himself. Jesus Christ never instituted division of labor among His followers in the sense that you pretend. He gave the same work to each and every one of His followers and told them that they are all of them equals and expected to accomplish the tasks contained in the agreement as individuals. So, think carefully about it. undecided

Imagine there are 100 commandments in total and I am required by Jesus Christ to meet a certain quota by obeying each of the 100 commandments that were given to me in the agreement that I entered into with Jesus Christ. Now, If I, as a servant decided to instead focus on some tasks while I relegate some of my duties to others who are supposedly in the flock of Jesus Christ, by what method do I still meet the quota on all 100 commandments as expected of me as a follower of Jesus Christ? undecided

Jesus Christ never explained such a situation being possible for any of His followers. His teachings are clear that each servant will be expected to meet the quota for all the work given and the work given is pretty much the same to all of His servants, He explained via parables and in clear speech - everyone is expected to do the work that He did and more. So where do your so-called church leaders get that idea that some are this and some are that from? undecided

Why do you feel God need you to open more churches or ministries? If that's where you are expecting the calling to end.
The number of ministries in the country is already too much. I mean if the existing ministries or churches cannot help propagate the gospel of Christ or make people turn completely from their evil ways, then more churches aren't needed.

So my fellow brethren, if you feel you have the calling, you had better channel that into building and elevating your present branch. Don't open another

It's all about frame of mind.
Your full time ministry is not in leaving all to "work" for God, but in "walking" with God anywhere he posted you.
Ministry has gone institutional; all God's people must find space in every part of our institutions and do their "full time" ministry for God there.
Let's forget about this notion of full time ministry simply because we aren't doing well or just to institutionalise laziness.
Your workplace is your ministry.

Not right sir- we are all called into the assignment of propagating the gospel; just that not all will serve in the house of God as pastors. The command to witness is given to all followers of Christ.

Nna don start , some people will capitalize on this now and start calling themselves prophet or Pastor. The number of church in Nigeria is times 3 of manufacturing industry, Our mumu never do ? A lot of youths are out there in the church looking for a miracle because their Pastors told them to believe instead of them going out there to be a problem solver and own a business. If you think only church can help you to fight poverty you have a problem called poverty of brain. Anyway if you don’t have anything doing now and you are in Lagos and you are hoping for a financial freedom , feel free to contact and join my real estate team here in LAGOS. Trust me within 6 months you will make more than a million and also travel out with our team on vacation. Pls don’t say it’s a lie ooo check ayhomes.ng on instagram or www.Ayhomes.ng pls if you are looking for a miracle money pls don’t bother to contact our team.

Spiritual Knowledge comes easy to me, understanding the Bible is second nature
God has personally preserved me for something special, he delivered me from Cultism and a fraudulent life
An astrologer once told me I have the powers of the kings of Old
I feel a connection with men like Abraham, David, Solomon and other Patriarchs
I’m Catholic but know I owe God a ministry as a Doctor of the Church

Reading the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, it would appear the most important thing is knowing God, or rather, being known of God



Mat 7:22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 
Mat 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
