Glad To See It

In a recent Baptist Press article, it was reported that NAMB is working with a bivocational pastor advocate group to encourage more bivocational pastors to plant churches. NAMB's VP of mobilization, Aaron Coe, was quoted in the article as saying "we must leverage the laity to plant churches,and we need to do it through a bivocational church movement."

I couldn't agree more. As my post on planting a church with little or no funding proposed this exact scenario, I am happy to see that NAMB's leadership is beginning to embrace this approach. Bivocational church planters is nothing new. That is how the SBC used to plant churches in our greatest period of growth in the 1940's and 1950's. Sometimes the old ways are best.
