The Art and Practice of Bivocational Ministry

A Pastor's Guide

By: Dennis Bickers
About This Product It's a balancing act.

If you're a bivocational pastor, you are familiar with the stresses, complications, and unique hurdles that come with bivocational ministry. You have a special calling.

In The Art and Practice of Bivocational Ministry, Dennis Bickers renders sound advice to help bivocational pastors succeed while juggling second jobs and/or families at home. Along with his seasoned insights, you will find real-life case studies of the specific challenges bivocational ministers commonly face. More than just a guide, Bickers has created a mentor-in-print, an invaluable resource for anyone balancing ministry with another job.

"The Art and Practice of Bivocational Ministry is packed with practical insight and counsel for couches or pastoral supervisors. Bickers provides a practical coaching model to follow. I learned new insights that will help immeasurably in working with bivocational pastors on my district."
--Dr. John Seamon
District Superintendent, Church of the Nazarene
Michigan District

"Bickers writes from the perspective of one who has practiced what he preaches. As a result, readers can glean practical insight and ideas they can use in their own ministry setting. I also recommend this book as a tool to help address the sense of loneliness many bivocational ministers experience."
