Sacred Roots: Thriving in Ministry

Sacred Roots: Thriving in Ministry

In North America, more than one-third of churches have bivocational pastors.
Bivocational pastors, in addition to responsibilities to the local church, must also maintain full-time "secular" jobs to support themselves.
The ratio of bivocational pastors to full-time pastors only increases when we assume a global perspective.
‍ Due to work, church, and personal obligations, it can be extraordinarily difficult for bivocational pastors to attend traditional seminary.
Sacred Roots provides resources for congregational leaders to learn alongside both living friends and "dead friends," whose wisdom we find in the Christian spiritual classics.
The Sacred Roots Project is based in Upland, Indiana at Taylor University. Taylor University is a Christian liberal arts university dedicated to developing servant leaders marked with a passion to minister Christ's redemptive love and truth to a world in need.
