Does the Bible Prohibit a Pastor's Side Hustle?


In this episode Jon and Les answer a question that comes up from time to time from pastors who are wrestling with the idea of launching a side-hustle. 

Although the question gets asked in various ways, at its core is the dilemma some people believe exists for a pastor to have more than one stream of revenue.  

Much of this thinking stems from a verse in 1 Corinthians 9 that contains the phrase, “those who preach the gospel should receive their living through the gospel.”  

At first glance, some may interpret this to mean that a pastor should ONLY be paid for their gospel work.  But is that really what Paul is communicating in the full context of this passage of Scripture?  Jon and Les believe there is much more to understand around this topic.  

In this episode you will hear them explain how this verse is not prohibiting pastors from earning one or more streams of revenue through profitable business pursuits in the marketplace in addition to their income for serving in a pastoral role.
