Finding Your Ideal Ministry

Show Notes:

Host: Jim Hughes, Christian Life Coach

Your Ideal (Dream) Ministry is defined as a ministry where:
  • You use your favorite skill
  • In a ministry defined by your favorite interests
  • In an organization having your favorite people environments
  • Serving your favorite ministry values
  • With your favorite working conditions
  • With appropriate salary and level of responsibility
  • In your favorite geography.
This definition is a straightforward adaptation from the one Richard Bolles gives as the definition of your ideal job in his book, What Color is Your Parachute?

Your favorite skills, interests, etc. are important because God made you the way you are for a reason -- to serve his purposes in ways that only you can do.

To learn more about yourself and how you're "wired," do the Flower Exercise in Bolles' book -- just apply the results to ministry instead of career.
