Can bi-vocational church planters really be effective?

History shows us William Carey managed a factory while also translating the Bible into Bengali, Hans Nielsen Hauge was a serial entrepreneur and gifted Norwegian evangelist, Betsey Stockton set up a school system for 8,000 children in order that they could read the Bible while also working as a maid. The Moravians and Anabaptists are denominations which have sent hundreds of bi-vocational church planters and tentmakers to the least-reached. The question is really about intentionality. Do we wake each day with the goal of planting a church or do we simply want to make it through the day?
