Leaving all to follow God’s call....
Jenna Ramsey believes God is calling her to leave teaching and pursue full-time ministry training. She boldly steps out in faith, determined to overcome her self-doubt and to grow in her gifts of leadership, teaching and encouragement. But some disapprove – are theological studies and ministry truly something women should undertake? And while Jenna grows in confidence and many come to value highly what she has to offer her church and community, some, including close colleagues, are not so supportive. Will she be able to stand firm and continue serving God as she desires? Will she find true fulfillment in both her ministry role and her personal life?
Jenna’s story is told in the hope that it will inspire both men and women to pursue all they are called to do in life, secure in God’s love and reliant on the strength and wisdom only God can provide.
