This podcast looks at a few examples of men called in the New Testament time and to two quotes of statements from Paul on the called ministry of the Word.

These are all synonymously to refer to men called to preach-teach-exhort the Word, the inspired writings of the Old and New Testament to people especially within the assemblies, congregations to enable God's people for the work of ministry.
