About Answering The Call

This book is specifically written to bring greater understanding into what it means to do ministry vocationally, as a career and full-time vocation. Along the way, most of us who have a relationship with Jesus wonder if this is for us. We wonder if He called us to do it, would we be willing to say “yes.”

It is definitely not for everyone, but if it is for you, I want to encourage you: God will come through for you! It will be challenging and at times deeply disappointing, but if you are doing this for Him, then you are in for the adventure of a lifetime!


“If you want to know what it looks like to understand and respond to the call of full-time ministry, you need to read this book. Ron gets it. He lives it. He whole-heartedly believes in the God of the impossible. His clear understanding of Scripture and godly tenacity has helped establish countless ministries and plant dozens of churches around the world. His passion for New York City – ever since the founding of Every Nation; New York in the wake of 9/11 – has inspired and changed many lives. I praise the Lord for people like Ron and am happy to call him a friend.”

-Luis Palau, International Evangelist


“Ron Lewis has helped more young people answer the call to ministry than anybody I know. These principles will guide you confidently into the purposes of God.”

-Dr. Rice Broocks, Co-founder, Every Nation; Author of God’s Not Dead and Man, Myth, Messiah
