Two weeks before he turned 51, Daniel Holbrook sensed that God was telling him that he needed to leave his job at a transmission manufacturing plant. Daniel had worked at the plant for many years and had worked his way up the corporate ladder to become a general manager at the plant. All the while, he served as a lay leader in a local church, as his way of following God’s call to preach. At a retreat, Daniel felt that the Lord was asking him to follow the call to preach full-time. In response, he resigned his job and took a job pastoring a small church nearby. Daniel said making a middle-age career change did not make sense financially, he knew he had to be obedient. He said now he knows he is where God wants him. Daniel said, “There is peace when you’re where you are supposed to be. Ministry was my passion. It’s what I was meant to do.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
