This 2006 seminar is helpful for men who are considering to pursue pastoral or elder level ministry. Dave Harvey’s message ‘Ambition and the Called’ is particulary insightful as he differentiates between human ambition and godly ambition.
Harvey also makes the statement, “It’s not unusual for God to call a man to ministry and then immediately put on the brakes, and cast them into the wilderness, sometimes for a long period of time. God’s calling operates on His timing, and not ours. And when the time is right he will place that man into the ministry He has for him” (my paraphrase).
