“The job of a Pastor can be challenging and oddly enough at times very lonely. No one understands the challenges of the Pastorate better than another Pastor. PLN has allowed me to build a network with Pastors that is about community and personal growth. It has been and is a blessing to know I have a number of guys to call for advice and encouragement.” —  Drew Grubbs, Lead Pastor at Legacy Church, Northeast Church, St. Petersburg, Florida

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

I believe God is a God of abundance who gave you multiple talents to build and serve His Kingdom and by using ALL of your God-given talents, you take better care of yourself and your family and become a better pastor in the process.

That's why my friend Jon Sanders and I have started EntrePastors.com.

EntrePastors.com is for the pastor ready to start earning extra streams of income to further kingdom impact.
