A life towards pastoral calling: Final Post

This is the final post for this series, A Life Towards Pastoral Calling. The series was in three parts. ¬†You can read Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 on the blog. However, I’v put the full document bellow, just click on the PDF icon. I don’t think there’s much else to say here but simply that however helpful this article/series has been, it’s been exponentially helpful for my soul to write it out. This paper is largely the culmination of thinking through these things over the last 10 years, and how even still with the desire of pastoral ministry in my heart this paper’s material still is precious to my soul and breaths life to my sails. If you find it helpful, may the Lord bless you.

Book recommendations
During this series I’ve included several book suggestions at the end of each post. These are the books that have shaped my own thinking on this over the years, and I highly recommend them to other young men thinking about pastoral calling. And if you don’t like books, you’re probably not called to be a pastor. (Yes, that’s a serious comment.)

  1. Jacob,
    Thanks for your awesome posts, here. I love what you are doing and first viewed your posts on Russell Moore and John Owen on the mortification of sin.

    I am looking over your posts on pastoral calling. I am a 1984 graduate of Western Conservative Baptist Seminary and spent eight awesome and challenging years (1984-1992) as a pastor and definitely sensed God’s calling.

    We are faithful in a Baptist Church and I serve as a full-time support-raising jail chaplain with Prisoners for Christ Outreach Ministries near Seattle, Washington.

    I’d love to hear from you!
