From Pastor to Ghostwriter (with Kent Sanders)

May 20, 2022

In this episode Jon and Les have a conversation with Kent Sanders.  A few years ago Kent made a transition out of pastoral ministry and into a full-time career as a ghostwriter.  Here are some of the topics Kent shared with us in this interview:

  • Many pastors are unaware of how possible and profitable a side hustle as a ghostwriter could be.
  • It’s important to have the right mindset around “quitting ministry.”
  • It’s also important to have a healthy mindset around the subject of money.
  • Kent has found much more opportunity for ministry in the marketplace than he did in traditional pastoral ministry.
  • Time management as a pastor with a side hustle.
  • Pastors are problem solvers and this is a skill that is very transferable to the marketplace.

In the backstage portion of this episode Kent shares some helpful tips for any pastor who is interested in getting started as a ghostwriter.
