Some facts about Bivocational Ministry

 

Bivocational Ministry:

 

  • is a biblical option for fulfilling the Great Commission.

  • is not new: apart from Apostle Paul in the Bible, a number of early ministers and missionaries who made a great impact for God’s mission - such as English Baptist Minister and Missionary William Carey (1761-1834) were bivocational ministers.

  • is not necessarily ‘part-time ministry’ but a ministry for those with two vocations who serve the Lord with ALL of their life.

  • is not only for small or poor churches and ministries. While this was largely the case historically, many people today are choosing to become bivocational ministers willingly..

  • offers opportunities and at the same time presents challenges
