Eric Howell: Answering the Call (Luke 5:1-11)
Eric Howell, pastor of DaySpring Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, examines what it looks like to follow Jesus’ call to ministry. For a long time, the assumption has been that a call to ministry means a person must become a preacher or a missionary. In contrast, Howell explains how Jesus’ call is a holy call to be his witnesses in the everyday work of the world.
