Bivo Pastor ,

Great help to bivocational pastors!

This podcast does a great job of talking about the things that I face in a general way. As a bivocational pastor in a rural community with a church with 85 in attendance and 120 years of tradition, these guys speak to things that I can do, and do so with an appropriate respect. Check them out!
