Joel Seymour discusses how to serve and impact rural and small towns as a bivocational pastor.
- How has serving as a bivocational pastor relieved financial pressure within your church? How has it allowed your church to use its resources to better serve your community?
- How has bivocational ministry helped you to “fit in” within your community? Why is this especially important in rural areas?
- What is your definition of success in your rural setting? Why is it important to set your own metrics than compare to the metrics of others?
- How are you pastoring the people in your rural setting, even if they do not attend your church?
