Ed Stetzer examines how employment outside a church leads to more evangelistic opportunities for bivocational pastors.
- If you must be near people to share the gospel with them, how has bivocational ministry given you proximity to people you may not have encountered otherwise?
- Do you identify yourself as a missionary pastor or a scholarly pastor? What is the difference? How does this difference influence your bivocational ministry? How does it impact your evangelistic opportunities?
- How does bivocational ministry help you to live out your own teaching and sermons? How does your leadership example encourage your congregation in evangelism?
- What is your “shepherd-less flock”? How are you serving this flock? How does your service lead to sharing the gospel with these people?
