We Can Help You Discern Your Calling


How Do I Pursue God’s Calling?

If you are sensing a call to ministry, we would love to help you understand that calling better. As you begin to pursue your calling, please consider who the people are in your life that hold you accountable. Invite them to share with you some ways that God has used you in the past. Speak with your pastor so that he can help you discern your gifts for ministry and ask about the ways that you can begin serving now.


What Help Do We Offer?

Each year we provide a Pastoral Assessment Center (PAC) where applicants and their wives are provided direction, resources, and insight about their callings to ministry. This intensive week is held in the Myerstown area in January and is required for credentialing within the Evangelical Congregational Church.


What Training Do I Need?

Much depends on your season of life, your previous education, and your particular calling. It would be wise to speak with the MDA about your situation before enrolling in a bible college or seminary. Your path to ministry may be drastically different than you expect.
