Who is God calling to leadership in the church?

The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 2 Corinthians 9:6

Lutherans believe God’s call to ministry comes from both inside a person and from someone else. Those are known as internal and external calls. The Sow the Seeds Initiative of the Nebraska Synod invites you to consider who you know that might be called to serve as a pastor, deacon or parish ministry associate and then encourage that person to consider if they sense that call, too.
