When we come to Christ, He saves us and begins to show us the work He has designed for us to do. We need to be prepared for that work, whether we are sharing our faith with our family and friends or serving in full-time ministry. Do you wonder what your place is in God’s great plan or do you want more training for ministry but aren’t sure what options to pursue? Pastor and professor Dr. Winfred Neely joins Chris Brooks to delve into these questions and more!
