ordination paperwork: question #12

Today, short and sweet.

c) Practice of Ministry:
2) Do you offer yourself without reserve to be appointed and to serve as the appointive authority may determine?

Yes, I do. I have had the luxury of being appointed very close to my hometown during my first years as pastor, and I appreciate my location in many ways. However, I am certainly willing to be appointed as the Bishop and Cabinet feel they find a community that is a match for me to serve. Truthfully, I have spent most of my life to this point with occasional transitions. Since junior high, I have never been in one setting for more than three years. Right now, I enjoy my mobility – I am always finding new interests and new passions, and God always seem to be finding new challenges, issuing new calls on my life. I want to always be ready to respond to God’s call.
