How to Help Youth Discern the Call to Ministry

Episode 251 of the Influence Podcast with John Zick

George P Wood on April 15, 2021


The U.S. Assemblies of God has a mandate, a problem, and a need,” writes John Zick in the newest issue of Influence magazine. The mandate is to evangelize the world. The problem is that youth are underrepresented among AG ministers. And the need is to develop the next generation of vocational ministers.

That need—how to help youth discern a call to vocational ministry—is the topic of today’s conversation with John Zick. I’m George P. Wood, executive editor of Influence magazine and your host.

John Zick is director of Operations and Strategic Partnerships for Assemblies of God Youth Ministries. He is author of Called: Cover the Earth with the Love of Jesus, published by Gospel Publishing House.
