  • Ecumenical conference explores dynamics of bi-vocational ministry

    May 13, 2016

    Nestled in a retreat center on the largest of the Golden Isles along Georgia’s southern Atlantic coast, an ecumenical group of bi-vocational pastors and church leaders sought restoration and rejuvenation recently in an effort to more fully live into bi-vocational ministry.

    They were gathered for the first “Bi-vocational Ministry in the 21st Century Conference,” sponsored by Professional Church Leadership, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and the United Church of Christ (UCC). The two-day event, held at Epworth By the Sea, featured plenary sessions, workshop tracks for bi-vocational pastors and judicatory leaders, worship, fellowship, and relaxation time.
