Bivocational ministers face unique challenges. Often times, you are called to lead smaller churches with few resources, many of which have plateaued or are in decline. Many bivocational pastors have little or no formal theological training. Bivocational ministry is looked at by some as a "second-class" ministry performed by people who do not have the opportunity to serve a larger church. Along with your family and church responsibilites, your second job also requires a large amount of time each week. But you have a special calling, as both of your jobs can provide opportunities for ministry. In his new book, Dennis Bickers provides solid advice to help you succeed in bivocational ministry.
