The Rural Pastor Podcast – Episode 2 – Vocational Identity
The role of the rural pastor is often obscured by the title of the position they fill: volunteer, bi-vocational, co-vocational, or full-time. Those labels make some pastors feel like there is a big leagues to get to if you are not full time, and may even be used in a demeaning way by congregation members. But, there are no part time pastors, even if you are paid part time. Your vocational identity is important, but your role is even more important… probably more than you know!
