Bi-Vocational Pastor

The number of churches requiring a bi-vocational pastor is trending upward, and bi-vo ministry is a demanding task. While many—if not most—bi-vo pastors would prefer full-time ministry, how might those called to such a duty find contentment in their calling? Given the stringent demands of shepherding one’s family, shepherding the flock of God, and part-or full-time employment, how can the bi-vo pastor find the proper balance in expending his time and energy? How might the bi-vo pastor lead his congregation to understand and be sensitive to the demands upon his time? Listen as Brian Croft and Jim Savastio address these and other pertinent issues pertaining to the honorable task of bi-vocational pastoral ministry.
