The Work of the Bivocational Minister
What is bivocational ministry? Why choose it? Where can you find it? Who is the bivocational minister?

Veteran bivocational minister and author Dennis Bickers answers these basic questions in establishing the work of bivocational ministry. Simply defined, it is the professional ministry of any pastor or salaried church leader who also has other sources of income. Traditionally, it is a ministry that has been treated as second-class and less than ideal, but Bickers celebrates its benefits and rewards, even as he acknowledges its challenges.

The Work of the Pastor
Rather than dictating a rigid job description, author Vic Lehman develops his ideas and perspectives based on the understanding that there is no one right way to be a pastor. Pastoral duties may differ based on the ministry situation and the pastor’s particular areas of giftedness. Nevertheless, there are certain core duties that are widely associated with pastoral ministry, and there are many other possibilities pastors ought to consider as they strive to increase their effectiveness in ministry.

The Work of the Chaplain
The Work of the Chaplain is the ideal starting point for all who are exploring a call to chaplain ministry, including seminarians. As experienced chaplains themselves, the authors provide from a Christian perspective a concise history and biblical basis for chaplain ministry and carefully explain what makes chaplaincy unique. They provide specific guidance for the often unique areas to which chaplains are called to minister.

The Work of the Associate Pastor
aving spent more than ten years as an associate in pastoral ministry, Alan R. Rudnick brings a wealth of research and experience to the often undervalued ministry of the associate pastor. Inviting readers to understand associate ministry as more than training ground for a senior pastorate, Rudnick explores the diverse roles and responsibilities that fall under the associate umbrella. From life-stage ministries with children and youth, singles and seniors, to specialized ministry areas such as music, education, pastoral care, and counseling, this volume acknowledges the challenges and opportunities offered to associate pastors in their distinctive ministries.
