You probably have asked yourself this question. Am I a Real Church Pastor or Pastor of Doom “in the make”? What goes on in a Pastor’s, Evangelist’s, or Priest’s head? or anyone who shepherds people to God or intend to do so?
We are living in the end times. So if you are a Pastor or want to become one, here are a few questions you can try to see if you are able to answer them honestly. There are in particular order. You will have your yes’s and no’s, but this will difinitely stir you up. Just be honest so that you find yourself. In the end you may decide if you are wrong or right or if you need to adjust somewhere.
