Scripture must first be our guide when evaluating a young man’s desire for pastoral ministry (1 Tim. 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Pet. 5:1-4). This blueprint needs to then be evaluated by the young man’s desire for the work (internal calling), and then by the pastors and congregation of his local church (external calling).

- A unique ability to understand and explain God’s Word
- An ability to emotionally engage people both public and private

- An authentic, honest awareness of his heart and personal brokenness
- A humble teachable spirit
- A clear possession of wisdom and discernment into life and struggles
- A strong ability to empathize to a hurting person
Pastors, look for these in the future pastors in your church and consider your own character in light of these qualities.
