Bivocational Ministry

I recently read about the growing trend of
“A rapid increase in bi-vocational church staff. We have noted the growing trend of bi-vocational pastors. We will see in 2015 an accelerated trend of other church staff becoming bi-vocational.” (http://thomrainer.com/2015/01/03/fifteen-trends-churches-2015-part-1/)

Seven Summer Missionaries!

As we began planning our annual summer “Fundamentals Camps” at Abundant Life Community Church (ALCC) early in 2014, we hoped we would be able to have some of the college and high school teens from our church to serve as summer missionaries.
