How To Be A Pastor And An Entrepreneur (w/ Jon Sanders and Les Hughes) – Episode 115

How To Be A Pastor And An Entrepreneur (w/ Jon Sanders and Les Hughes) – Episode 115

“Following God’s calling into ministry doesn’t mean you have to live a life of scarcity and meagerness.”

As pastors themselves, Jon and Les are familiar with the struggles that many people in ministry face when it comes to financial freedom. That’s why they’ve made it their mission to show other pastors how to use their gifts to create new streams of income. They’re passionate about helping pastors use added income to live more comfortably, start saving, and simply enjoy more opportunities.

Key Takeaways

1) Your calling is 24/7, but Jesus doesn’t expect us to work 24/7. To find success in an additional business endeavor, you’ve got to set boundaries. Boundaries create a safe place for pastors and their families. Get ahead of your schedule and don’t be passive about it—sometimes the most effective boundary is simply the word “no.”

2) Balance is a myth. We need to concentrate on finding a rhythm. Our life will likely never be perfectly balanced, but it can have rhythm. There are different expectations and needs in different seasons of our lives, and it’s okay to embrace those.

3) You don’t have to explain everything. When you’re intentional about your schedule and setting boundaries, you don’t have to give a reason for saying no to a request. It’s enough to say, “I’ve made a commitment that I cannot change.” Most people will understand.

4) Your calling can look different in different seasons of your life. If God is calling you to begin something new, then it’s time to step up with boldness and bravery. We can trust the desires of our hearts when we’re delighting ourselves in the Lord (Psalm 37:4).
