Jobs vs. Make Money Online
Dave Ramsey says if you want to get out of debt, go deliver pizzas! We say that takes away from your family and ministry too much. There’s a better way. You really can make money online. Should you take a second job or should you make money online? The real question is:
“Are you keeping your options open to making a secondary income on top of what you’re doing now?”
Many pastors and church leaders have mentioned to us in a survey or in conversation that income is an important topic, although their humility (or perhaps pride?) disallows them from opening up the real details.
Nonetheless, it is a growing trend within smaller churches that their church leaders are financially struggling. Are you a church planter struggling to find financial supporters? Are you a missionary or ministry leader in the midst of a drop in your fund raising? Are you facing mounting medical bills and your church is too tight to increase your salary?
Let’s “moonlight outside the spotlight” by making income that accommodates family and ministry. The goal is to supplement your family income without having to take too much time away from your primary calling or home. We love our family too. We love our church too! We don’t want to distract too much from either of them.
Many church leaders are weary of the idea of taking up a second part-time job or have their spouse employed as a second household income. Regardless of the reasons or fears, we’d like to help you overcome them.
Although there are an abundance of websites out there on how to make money online on the internet, or online income, we prefer to promote just a simple few ways to aid your financial concerns in order to free you up to serve our Lord Jesus as He called you.
Take a look at the subpages, and you’ll find our main areas of interest for online income. Notice, we DO NOT RECOMMEND Multi-Level Marketing for Pastors. We have many thoughts on MLM’s (we’re actually quite fond of some of them), but will address this in a later post.
