This Presbyterian Interim Pastor Training course offers an excellent opportunity for leaders to hone skills such as how to say hello and goodbye in healthy ways, to help congregations heal and gain tools for understanding their congregation.

Bi-vocational ministry is a growing form of pastoral leadership in the 21st century. This new and not so new form of ministry provides hope for small congregations and ministers seeking calls. Simply stated, bi-vocational or “tentmaking” ministry is when a minister who is employed by a congregation is also employed in another situation. However, bi-vocational ministry within the Presbyterian Church raises the issues of shifting paradigms, new leadership models, economic sustainability, and the shared ministry of the church. Join the free webinars presented by the Office of Vocation to learn more about bi-vocational ministry, its positive aspects and its benefits for the Church.
