 You’re Called to the Ministry. Now What? is a free e-book for individuals preparing for ministry and missions.


While there is much preparation involved in suiting up to go for the Lord, one aspect can be overlooked or not given much thought, and that is financing your education and preparation for ministry or missions. A close second is financing your launch. Let me strongly encourage you not to consider borrowing money. The world cannot offer any meaningful input for the believer when it comes to financing your education and preparation for God’s work. The world has no thought or concern of God’s ways, God’s will and God’s economy. You cannot use the world’s ways to finance your preparation for ministry and expect God to bless it. Now, you might wonder, “Then how am I going to pay for my education and preparation?”

This booklet answers that question.
