One time I had disaster after disaster until I ended up homeless for a time. And during that time I stumbled upon a 2x2 gospel meeting. As if I did not have enough troubles already, one of the workers there preached about the requirements for ministry in a true church.
After the gospel meeting was over I talked to him because I thought his church might be the foot up I needed at that moment - a job preaching like he was doing with a place to live and food too, with no other work to do but preach at gospel meetings. And I presented him with my resume - I was homeless, poor, single and felt the call of God to go preaching like he was doing - or the call of my empty stomack - I was not sure which.
I learned through that instance that there were a lot more requirements for 2x2 ministry than he told about - he actually seemed more interested in seeing my backside heading out the hall door than helping me get a good job preaching like he was doing.
