We call them bi-vocational / Rural Route Heroes Part VII

We call them bi-vocational but I don’t think that term begins to cover the emotional, spiritual, and physical dimensions of their pastorate.  Bi-vocational pastors are not part time ministers.  Bi-vocational pastors do not cut their ministerial investment in half in order to accomplish the call God has placed on their lives.

They are every bit as much called as a “full time” guy.  They are just not compensated in a way that allows them the freedom that full time pastors take for granted.  They are amazing men who take on the challenge of pastoring churches many of us could not pastor.  They have the God given ability to multi-task on a level that most of us will never understand.  They get two (sometimes 3) jobs done in the time some of us do one.  They are responsible for pastoring a HUGE segment of our churches and they are Rural Route Heroes!
