Pastors who are bivocational or considering bivocationality are invited to apply to the 2022 cohort of the Bivocational Growth Fellowship.
The Fellowship will support 15-20 pastors in 2022 to take steps toward long-term financial sustainability and vocational fit. The yearlong program will provide participants with financial assistance, training resources, and goal development support. Within a cohort of fellow pastors, participants will develop a plan, receive vocational and financial coaching, pursue additional training and learning opportunities customized to their situation, and share experiences with colleagues for mutual learning and growth.
If you are an ordained CRCNA pastor and engaged in or considering bivocational ministry, you are welcome to apply! You can learn more and APPLY HERE through November 30th.
Please consider sharing this opportunity with any pastors or churches you know who are considering or curious about bivocational ministry.
To discuss the Bivocational Growth Fellowship or bivocational ministry in the CRCNA more generally, you can reach me at [email protected].

Financial Shalom seeks to alleviate financial challenges facing pastors. But as its name suggests, money is not the ultimate end-game: the goal is for pastors to have healthy and right relationships—with themselves, their work, their families, their communities, their churches, and yes, their resources. Bivocationality poses opportunities and challenges to each of these relationships. So Financial Shalom seeks to support current or potential bivocational pastors through the Bivocational Growth Fellowship.
