Our Financial Health team has partnered with our Bivocational Ministry in this video series to help pastors that may be considering bivocational work gain a better understanding of the unique challenges, benefits, and helpful disciplines that make bivocactional work successful and sustainable. Bivocational work is a valid and oftentimes overlooked option for pastors whose churches are unable to pay them a living wage. These videos help to bring to light what the transition to bivocational work looks like and how it can be a blessing to the church, the pastor, and the community.
