It is agreed on the part of nearly all Christians that all believers are not called to be preachers. Women are forbidden to exercise the office (1 Tim. ii. 11, 12 ; 1 Cor. xi. 3-15; compared with xiv. 34, 35); novices are excluded (1 Tim. iii. 6), while they are novices.

Those who lack evangelistic zeal and/or gifts are also excluded:

A want of will and of effort to bring souls to Christ is a sign that a man has not been called to preach the gospel.
