Bi-vocational ministers

My husband is an ordained minister but is not employed by a church. He is bi-vocational. Does he have to be set up as a minister and pay his own social security and medicare taxes?

Yes...he will have to pay his own social security and medicare taxes (self-employment taxes) especially if he is considered self-employed.
