Is Bi-Vocational Ministry the Future For Leaders?

For as long as we’ve all been alive, there has been sort of a two-tiered system for Christians: Those who are “called” enough and lucky enough to be on the staff at church and actually get paid to do ministry… and then there was pretty much everyone else. Or what is often referred to as the “laity” and the never-ending line of church volunteers.

In this episode of The Everyday Disciple Podcast, we’re talking about the future of church leadership and who should be having paid positions at the church. And how, maybe, full-time vocational ministry is shifting in our time. Is bi-vocational ministry your future?

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • How the rise of layers of paid church staff is really a late-model invention.
  • How there is a shift happening to what is called bi-vocational ministry (Bivo).
  • 7 benefits to bi-vocational ministry and church planting that propel ministry.
  • Why planning for a future career in paid ministry may not work for you.
