Bi-vocational Pastor Expectations
We have been blessed with a bi-vocational pastor since our very beginnings. Pastor Mike has served us as a volunteer, gladly making costly personal sacrifices matched only by his wife Lois. We're grateful for him (and her) and it's been good. Very good.
As we plan for the future, we want to ensure that we serve the men who serve us. We want to protect them...we have many needs and the work of a pastor is never finished. As a bi-vocational elder divides his time between his occupation and his calling to pastor our church, clear expectations are necessary. So this week our pastoral team adopted just such a document. A statement regarding the ministry and calling of a pastor who serves us full-time, while employed in another profession.
FYI. This document and others regarding how we organize and lead our church are all located here.
