When I started ViaCordis, I wrote a letter to my long-time supporters and said, “I’m going to be planting a new church. I’m going to be doing it bivocationally. So I would appreciate your encouragement and your prayers, but please don’t send any more money.”
Self-support is possible only if you hive off Christians. But planting among non-Christians will take a lot of time and it will take a team. That’s why I decided to plant bivocationally.
