Questions:

  1. Hugh, what is “bivocational” pastoring and church planting?
  2. Is seems like the bivocational idea–“bivo”–is viewed negative by people. Why is that?
  3. You’ve written BiVO: A Modern-Day Guide for Bi-Vocational Saints. We’ll talk more about the book in a moment, but can you build out the history of bivocational ministry?
  4. Within BiVO you explain the strategic nature of holding ministry and marketplace roles hand-in-hand? Why are these types of ministry so important?
  5. Move us forward 20 years from now. If you’re predicting what the church in North America will look like–where do you see Bivocationalism (in 2038)?
  6. Hugh, if you were sitting down for a meal with your 20 year old self–and you could speak one thing into yourself at that key moment–what would you say?
