Wait a minute. Think about what's going on. You're going to get a lot of questions about this. We don't want you to be discouraged by honest questions. We want you to be prepared.
What questions should you expect from others?
Here's some samples, below.
From your parents:
Are you kidding? You did what?
How does your college education play into this?
What is the process? How do you get to do that?
How do you think you're going to get from HERE to THERE?
From your church:
Have you been faithful and growing spiritually?
What ministry experience do you have?
What should be our role as a church to help?
Are you willing to submit to training and affirmation of the church?
How might your plans fit into our church's bigger vision and ministry?
From your friends:
Awesome! What does this mean?
How do I fit in?
How does this impact our relationship?
Can I help?
