Why Preachers have “Side Hustles”

Springridge Business Services loves helping Christian business owners, and that includes a very special group of owners: preachers.

You might not think of a preacher as a business owner, but many have some sort of economic venture (aka Side Hustle) in addition to their preaching.

Why would they do such a thing?

Here are three reasons:

1. They have to: Some preachers work a “regular” job or have their own business because they need the income to pay the bills. They might or might not *want* to do this, but their economic situation demands it.

2. They want to: Some preachers do more than just preach because they’re “wired” to have their hands in multiple projects at one time. Some people might be perplexed or put off by this, but it shouldn’t be surprising. Throughout history (secular and spiritual) there have been many industrious individuals who effectively engage in more than one thing.

3. A little bit of both: Brethren who have a “side hustle” only because they *have to* would gladly give it up if they could. But others like doing both, and while they need the income they’d continue doing both even if they didn’t.
