Bivocational Ministry seems self-defining. Yet it is a mystery to many in the church. When I think of Bivocational minsters, I’m reminded of a U.S. Marine Corps commercial I’ve seen often on TV. Applying the ad to these ministers, I think of “The Few . . . The Proud . . . The Bivocational.” Like the Marines, they are dedicated to their task; they are up to the task; they are trained to execute and complete the task, and they will get the job done! Without them, most small, rural churches would be leaderless and possibly give up and close their doors. Churches need pastors; pastors need churches.
