Overview

What is bivocational ministry? How can it work for the local church? What are the rewards and challenges for both the individual and the church? Who is the bivocational minister? Veteran bivocational minister and author Dennis Bickers answers these basic questions in establishing the work of bivocational ministry. Simply defined, it is the professional ministry of any pastor or salaried church leader who also has other sources of income. Traditionally, it is a ministry that has been treated as second-class and less than ideal, but Bickers celebrates its benefits and rewards, even as he acknowledges its challenges. This compact volume meets a critical need in the emergent church as it offers creative and practical insight into a time-tested, if not always honored, paradigm for ministry in the twenty-first century.
