The Discovery

Ministry Paths

Possible Ministry Paths

As you begin to discover and understand the call of God on your life, you will see that there are as many possible ministry paths as there are believers. While the positions that some believers hold may be similar enough to categorize, no believer should ever attempt to define himself/herself solely by a title or limit himself/herself to a job description. We are not called to a position, a desk, a livelihood, a category or a title. We are called to Jesus Himself. Your calling is not a task, it is a person. Jesus.Below, you will find a partial list of ministry paths for you to explore as you continue to discover what it is that God has in mind for your life. The idea of this list is to broaden your thoughts of what vocations God may use in your life to demonstrate His glory.
