    The descending of the Holy Spirit upon his disciples is called Pentecost and we read about in the Book of Acts, chapter 2: When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.

    clear and profound statement on our calling, and his legacy of biblical faithfulness and commitment to God’s glory is felt in every chapter. —Matt Carter Pastor, The Austin Stone Community Church John Piper is a pastor to pastors.

Called: Understanding the Call to Ministry is a valuable resource for anyone considering serving in ministry. In this brief book, the faculty of the College of Christian Studies at Anderson University will help you think through the concept of a call to ministry, and how to explore implications of that call in your life.
