11 year old new-pastor says “God called me through my dreams”

Just as the world keeps witnessing the re-birth of fake pastors, so is the same world witnessing the birth of  newly ordained ministers of God.
11years old Ezekiel Stoddard, of Temple Hills, who was recently ordained as a minister in his family’s independent Pentecostal church, says he was motivated to become a minister after God spoke to him in a dream and told him to read Psalm 23. 

“People come to you, they ask you questions about why you should act
like a child and not a minister,” the young minister said. “I do things
like a child, but still I am a minister. I am an evangelical.”

His mother, Pastor Adrienne Smith, says her son preaches the 11 a.m.
service with the other preachers at the Fullness of Time Church, a small
but growing congregation in Capitol Heights, Md.

Minister Ezekiel,
nicknamed “Zeek” by his family, said that he doesn’t feel like there
should be an age limit to how old a minister needs to be before becoming
ordained.

“A lot of people think of me being a kid, that my parents are forcing me
to minister the gospel,” he said. “But the first time I did a sermon, I
was 7 or 8.”
