Are you called to ministry?

Every follower of Jesus Christ is committed to service and witness in the world of a life of faith. There are those who experience another call into ministry leadership. If you have heard that call or think you may have, this is the place for you.

In The United Methodist Church, there are many ways to be a leader in your faith.

  • Certified Lay Minister
  • Local Pastor
  • Certification in Specialized Ministry
  • Ordained as a Deacon or Elder

The most important question is, “How are you pursuing your call?”

ExploreCalling.org is a helpful place to see what options you have! There is also a discernment retreat each year hosted by the United Methodist Church geared towards young adults hearing a call to ministry.

The Board of Ordained Ministry of the Desert Southwest Conference is eager to walk alongside you as you discern God’s call. Put your faith in Christ and know that you are not alone on the journey. Ask questions! Browse the site and discover new information! We look forward to praying for you, your leadership, and your journey.

In Christ’s service,

Rev. Dee Dee Azhikakath
