"Ministry comes with many weighty responsibilities. Ministry leaders are called to teach, serve, and lead. But in leading those under their care, there comes a moment when they recognize the future leaders under their leadership. With this recognition comes an all too familiar question: What comes next?"

On May 11th at NOON (CT), join National NextGen Director, Evangelist, & Author Shane Pruitt on
MyYouthMin by YM360 for a special FREE training on "Calling Out the Called," and how you can help and equip those in your ministry who are called to ministry vocation.


As a youth worker, you likely have some in your ministry who are wrestling with the idea of surrendering their lives to Jesus in this way. You desire to see their purpose fulfilled. However, you might not know where to begin.

Do you have the tools required to help them see this through? By saving your seat at this FREE Live Virtual Event, you will get the training necessary to help raise the next generation of ministry leaders that are sitting underneath your teaching every Wednesday and Sunday night.


Shane has been in ministry for over 20 years as a denominational leader, church planter, lead pastor, and student pastor. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies, a Master’s Degree in History, and a PhD in Clinical Christian Counseling.

He is also a traveling communicator, evangelist, and Bible teacher. Every year he speaks to over a hundred thousand people about the good news of Jesus Christ. He is also the author of many articles that have been picked up by RELEVANT, Christianity Today, The Christian Post, The Gospel Coalition, CrossWalk, Church Leaders, The Baptist Press, FaithIt, HelloChristian, and others. Shane and his wife, Kasi, were featured as ABC’s Nightly News “Persons of the Week” in August 2017.

Praise for Calling Out the Called:

“In recent years, the issue of “calling to ministry” has taken something of a backseat. Some dismiss the idea all together. I believe this is a tragic mistake. Knowing you are called by God to a vocation of Christian service can help sustain you through the valleys of ministry that will inevitably come. Further, understanding the nature of ministry can give you the essential mind and heart necessary to endure to the end and finish well. CALLING OUT THE CALLED addresses both of these important issues superbly. It is an excellent work. I will be quick to recommend it for years to come.”   

— Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

“It has been one of my great joys in life to help many young future pastors walk through the process of discerning their call to ministry. Now Scott Pace and my friend Shane Pruitt have done an incredible job of putting those key steps into a book. We hear far too often about pastors who have become discouraged and walked away from their calling. Without a doubt, pastoring is hard work. But what if many are walking away because of a lost sense of calling? Or what if they set off with the wrong sense of calling to begin with? We must call out our next generation of leaders in the Church, and we must help them be strongly anchored in their sense of calling.” 

— Kevin Ezell, President, North American Mission Board
