Do You Remember when the Lord Called You into Ministry, and How Long it Was Before You Actually Started?

By Randy Alcorn January 6, 2010

I became a Christian as a teenager, and by the time I’d known the Lord two years I knew I wanted to go to Bible college and study God’s Word. At first, I wanted to be a missionary, but then we started a church that I was asked to help pastor. I was 22 and Stu Weber was 31 when we were the two pastors of Good Shepherd Community Church. After all these years we meet weekly and are closer friends than ever. I haven’t been a pastor at my church since having to resign in 1990 due to the abortion clinic lawsuits, but I am still part of the church, and am grateful for that.
