Ministry & Family: Competitor or Calling?

The Central Thought: For most, “Being in the ministry” is not an individual calling, it is a family calling.  In other words, God calls families into the ministry (the “sons of the prophets” principle). 

The benefit of this is that when we see ministry as a family calling, we do not make our family or the church a competitor.  We make our family a part of the calling that is on our lives together and the church is a part of our extended family. 

The result is, we end up loving and serving both better.
