Is God calling me? Its the foundational question that must be answered by anyone considering entry into ministry leadership and then revisited regularly over a lifetime. Writing to a student and young adult audiencealthough applicable to leaders of all agesIorg declares the purpose of his brief, yet powerful book:
God is calling out a new generation of kingdom leaders who will accelerate the fulfillment of the Great Commission in this generation. My goal is to cut to the heart of the matter and give you tools to work through the call process.
The next best thing to sitting on the porch and discussing this pivotal life question with a wise mentor.
Ron Ellis, president, California Baptist University
A must read for every seminary student, potential missionary, or pastor-to-be.
Geoff Hammond, president, North American Mission Board
Every semester students sit down in my office to tell their story and seek a sense of clarity about God's calling for their life. Is God Calling Me? is a great tool for helping them find that clarity. The biblical background and the practical frameworks and stories that Jeff Iorg shares have already been a great help to me in giving those students handles for their questions.
Darrell Cook, campus minister, Virginia Tech
Acknowledging all believers have a call of God on their life, Iorg effectively categorizes the more specific calls to Christian leadership or missionary service as well as God's call to a particular job or location. His review of the diverse ways God calls will dispel doubts and indecision while giving assurance and confidence.
Jerry Rankin, president, International Mission Board
I've already been using the contents of Is God Calling Me? in presentations to students here at our seminary. Jeff Iorg has certainly written a volume that speaks to a crucial need for all seminarians. The issue of call has always been paramount to seminarians, but I think its necessity is even more obvious in these early days of the 21st century.
