Share How God Has Called You to Ministry at


The General Board of Higher Education and Ministry has launched the website to encourage United Methodists around the world to share videos of how God has called them to make a difference.

United Methodists are asked to record and submit a video that explains why they feel called to do the work they do and to describe how this work impacts others. Select videos will be featured at General Conference 2016 (May 10-20), on the website and via Higher Education and Ministry social media channels (@GBHEM).

“Many people are doing great things and making a difference in the church and around the world – we call these people difference makers. They have all experienced God’s call at some point in their lives, and we want to share their stories,” says Ebony Lincoln, director of communications at Higher Education and Ministry. “Higher Education and Ministry nurtures the culture of call in The United Methodist Church by providing programs, initiatives and resources to help individuals identify and support their calling. We want to share the impact that these individuals are having across the globe.”

Those who have felt called to do God’s work are encouraged to submit the video describing their calling, ministry or project at In the videos, participants should consider how their calling, ministry or project is making a difference; specifically, they should reflect on how Higher Education and Ministry has supported them and their calling. The agency hopes to inspire more people to pursue their calling by sharing these testimonies and stories.
