One of the first steps in your seminary journey is listening to God’s call on your life. We would be honored to be one of the voices speaking into this crucial area of your life by offering resources which have been helpful to many who have been in a similar place to where you find yourself now. Let these wise pastor-scholars offer some guidance and incorporate what they have to say with the voices of those who know you well-friends, family, pastors and mentors.
