Attention Young Clergy

I need some help and I need some opinion from some Young Clergy (Elders, Deacons, Candidates, whoever!).  For those of YC who accepted a call into the ministry in High School or College please leave me a comment or contact me via email at revjimparsons at gmail dot com.

Here are the questions I need help flushing out.

- Who helped you realize you were called into ministry?  Pastor?  Associate Pastor?  Youth Minister?  Friend?  Crazy street corner lady?  Angel from God?  Parents?

- During your High School and College years, what kind of support did you get exploring your call to ministry?

-  Is there something that would have helped you more during those formative years?  A mentor?  A group of peers exploring their call as well?  Internships to get hands on experience in ministry?

- What event/person/experience solidified your calling and gave you the strength/patience/fortitude to continue or go through the ordination process?

Any feed back would be very helpful and thanks for your help.
