God calls everyone to love and serve God. God calls some for licensed or ordained ministry. These steps serve two purposes; they help you to deepen your own understanding of your call, and they help us to know you and be a part of your discernment process to be a certified candidate in the United Methodist Church.

How were you called into ministry? Lay and clergy people around Missouri tell how God spoke into their lives and called them to the ministry.
