What full-time Christian minsters need to know about secular work

1. All Christian are involved in full-time Christian ministry. There is no such thing as part-time Christians. Never use the term "full-time Christian ministry" to describe only those with a role in the church or a church-related activity.

2. There is no sacred-secular divide. It’s not the activity that makes it secular, it’s the attitude and approach.The term secular shouldn't only be used to describe work that's done outside of church.

3. Serving Christ is not all about church-related activities.

Excellent formulation, and so brief, stunning!
