WHY IS BI-VOCACIONAL CHURCH PLANTING A VIABLE OPTION FOR ANY PROSPECTIVE PASTORS...
There is not enough money to finance all of the works needed to evangelize the nations.
It helps pastors get into their calling.
If a pastor is not concerned about raising a budget to pay his salary, he can focus on the harvest rather than who can pay for the harvest.
There is a strong biblical foundation for being a bi-vocational church planter.
Building teams is quickly advanced when the planter realizes he is not able to do all of the work.
The bi-vocational pastor lives life of his parishioners.
The bi-vocational pastor is not always in a survival mode.

“Unless you work in a Christian bookstore, you will most likely have more interaction with non-believers that if you are in ministry full time”
IF you are willing to be one of the harvesters and would like some practical training on how to do it, please contact us.
