Listen to the EntrePastors Podcast
Jon Sanders from Small Town Big Church and Pastor Les Hughes from Pastor's Leadership Network join to explore the meaning of entrepreneurship and how it relates to today's pastor.
Join us each week to move past limiting beliefs and a broken way of doing ministry and discover how to use your passions and skills beyond the traditional pastoral and church setting to create additional income streams for your family while remaining faithful to God's calling and purpose for your life.
Once I embraced the truth that God wants us to steward everything for His glory, I started seeing Him use my skills and gifts in more ways besides pastoral ministry. The bonus there is that I also started seeing additional streams of income that only further my work for the Lord. – Pastor Les Hughes
