If a bi-vocational missionary were interested in working in a city he or she would need a technical skill.

Many technology and business firms often have branches in foreign countries that would facilitate a missionary to both share the Gospel and still make a living.

They get the chance to lift themselves out of poverty by having a steady income, which fosters a sense of independence, to form relationships with the people in their community and therefore chances to share the Gospel,…

    Coaching Missionaries & National Pastors By D. J. Mingo Regularly, people describe me as a missionary counselor.
