From what I understand after speaking to many, many older and younger men over the last few years, it seems that every Christian man, usually around that 3-5 year mark in their faith, starts asking themselves, “Am I called to ministry? Should I be a pastor?”
So how do you know if you’re sensing a legitimate calling—or maybe that taquito you ate last night is coming back to haunt you?

For those trying to discern their calling, are you actively pursuing others who can confirm it?
Are you taking opportunities to test your giftedness?
Do you feel, as Spurgeon said, “an intense, all-absorbing desire for the work”?
For those who have confirmed their calling, what was most helpful for you along the way?
What advice would you give to those still trying to figure it out?
