Every day thousands of people in the USA answer God’s call into ministry. Some are very young and some are in the latter years of their life. I know of one Pastor that began Bible College at the age of 69 and took his first Pastorate at the age of 73. Regardless of their age or any challenges, they are to be commended on the fact that they heard God’s voice and said yes to His call.
However, just because God calls an individual into ministry does not relieve that person of properly doing ministry. What do I mean by “properly doing ministry?” Many are under the impression that God’s calling instantly and miraculous qualifies and empowers them, and removes any legal steps that may be necessary for a ministry in that particular locale.
