I’ve always wanted to be a full-time pastor, and finally the door has been opened, but I didn’t expect it to happen this soon. Since I first started to pastor in 2010, I’ve always been a bi-vocational pastor (2jobs), and at times I really enjoyed it– the other times I felt over worked. However, despite the joys and pains of bi-vocational ministry, I did what I had to do to provide for myself, my family, pay bills, and save. Furthermore, I’ve always felt that I needed to earn a certain amount of money to be full-time in ministry and take care of my family, I just never settled on that amount. Was it $30,000, $40,000, $70,000, $100,000; honestIy I don’t know, I just figured I’d know when I reached that magic number.
