This guest post forms part of the series “The role of ‘vocation’ in the life and work of a youth leader” and was written by Danny Bowers.
1999 was when I knew Jesus called me into youth ministry. I turned down playing Baseball at a college level to go to Bible College. I turned down the offer to run a lucrative business with a very healthy salary to help plant a church. The calling in my life to ministry turned everything around. Having been full time in ministry since 2001 I’ve seen a lot of change in the church, the world of youth ministry as well as my own soul as Jesus continues to shape me.
