Bivocationalism has historical roots — and modern benefits

By Leslie Quander Wooldridge
As church size declines, more pastors pursue second (and even third) careers for economic or personal reasons. Researchers and practitioners share guidance on how to make it work, advising that letting go of the stigma can be a first step.
Strategy questions:

• How might having a bivocational pastor benefit both the clergyperson and the congregation? 
• Burnout is an issue for pastors, whether they have one job or more. How might you manage bivocational ministry so that you don’t burn out?
