75% of the people I talk with, who are interested in planting a Digital-Only Church, are interested in being bi-vocational or co-vocational. They’re not looking to give up their full-time job to do ministry, instead they’re wanting to do ministry alongside (or even through) their job.
So I set out to better understand the heart behind co-vocational ministry. Having spent 15 years on various church staffs, I can honestly say I don’t have a solid perspective, and my learning accelerated quickly talking to Steve Pike. Steve, author of Next Wave: Developing the 21st Century Church. Steve starts talking about five different funding models for the Church. Tithes/Offerings is just one model… Bi-Vocational is another…
Can the Post-COVID Church find other ways beyond tithes and offerings? Let the learning begin!
