How to Succeed in Your Ministry to God
As a Christian, you have a calling to the ministry. It does not matter who you are, what your skills are, what talents you have, or where you live, God has strategically placed you on this earth and has a purpose for you that will help to grow his kingdom.

To fulfill that which God has called you for, you must walk on the path of excellence. The ultimate step to succeeding in the ministry? It is to follow the example that Jesus has provided and to pursue excellence at every opportunity in your life.
What Does Excellence Mean?
Excellence is the act of rising to the absolutely highest place, to be distinguished and to be superior. It is a place of the highest level of quality and the highest level of integrity. It means that you stand above the rest by exceeding the rest.
In the ministry, it means that you have a desire to reach towards the expectations of God to and God, himself. You are not working to obtain something from the Lord, but to give to him. You promote the gospel and work for the greater good of God’s Kingdom.
It is honoring God with every aspect of your being and allowing him to work his will through you, regardless of what may be expected from you.
Steps to Excellence
