However, as a pastor or a Christian leader, you have a calling to “go into the world and preach the gospel.”

You should, therefore, be consumed with the need to keep the gospel business alive and active to your reach.

God’s business is your business, so winning souls is your number one business that you should focus on.

As you focus on the kingdom business, God has promised to add other things to you.

The other things God will add to you can be a success in your business in this world.

You must remember that God expects you to work with your own hands and do your business so that He can bless the work of your hands.

The Following Are Businesses You Can Start At Home As A Pastor Or Any Other Gospel Minister

1. Blogging  Business Idea 

Blogging is one of the oldest ways to make legitimate money using the internet. It is one of the easiest to start but can be slow.

All you need is to find a suitable industry (niche) and concentrate on creating informative and educative content for your audience.

With a good Search Engine Optimization (SEO), your content can be found organically and as you create an audience, you will be able to monetize your traffic through affiliate marketing, Ads placement, and selling of info products like e-books, etc.

It is a good and sustainable business venture that you can do conveniently from the comfort of your home.

All you need is a laptop and a source of internet.

This is therefore a good business idea to consider as a gospel minister.

2. YouTube Channel Business Idea. 

If writing is challenging to you, why not go into video production.

You can choose any interesting niche and begin to research the niche to produce videos of those topics.

It can be your vacation, your hobby, and any other expertise that you can teach others in your video.

You can preach the gospel on your channel and earn money through placing adverts as you grow your audience.

In addition, you can use your channel to expend your ministry and earn money in the process.

There are many ministries these days that have YouTube channels to promote their ministry work.

Therefore, you should take advantage of this opportunity.

You can have a separate channel for your church and different personal YouTube channels.

Having a YouTube channel is a good business idea to consider as a Christian Gospel minister.

I introduce Acorns, which offers a micro investing app that helps people save and invest for their future. Over 3 million Americans use Acorns to help set aside a little from their everyday purchases.

3. Life Coach Business Idea.

As a pastor or any other Gospel Minister, you are in the business of coaching people in the things of God, and this is the opportunity to learn how to be a coach to others in other fields.

You can become a life coach and be teaching or coaching people how to live their life.

If you have expertise in any other field like sports, or you are good with handling people, and managing life issues.

You can become a certified life coach and get people to pay you to help them manage their lives.

Life is hard. If you have it figured out, consider helping someone else.

This is a very suitable business to consider doing as a pastor and minster of the gospel.

4. Consulting Business Ideas

Another business venture you can consider as a pastor or any other gospel minister is consulting business ideas.

You may be an architect, an engineer, or any other profession that can offer consulting services and be a pastor at the same time.

All you have to is to dust up your knowledge in those fields and become a consultant in that area.

Consultancy business is a business that you can setup and manage from your home while you are still a pastor in a Church.

Let me introduce Grasshopper Group, which allows customers to stay connected to clients and vendors with separate personal & business communications. They encourage patrons to manage their business calls, texts and voicemail with simple call forwarding and phone directory tools

You can write children’s books, e-books, self–help books and sell them on Amazon.

Also, you can write books on any skill that you know well and can teach others, the hobbies you have or want to learn and teach in the process, the opportunities in book writing are endless for you as a pastor.

7. Tutoring And Online Course Business Idea. 

As a pastor, you are already in the education industry; you should know how to teach others what you have learned in life.

You can teach the gospel or any other field of endeavor that you are competent in.

Since we are talking about businesses you can do from the comfort of your home.

I will not be discussing setting up a school or any formal education platform that will require a physical structure.

Your best option for this idea is setting an online course or school from your home, where your students can sign up and take up classes online.

This is due to the fact that online education is gaining more acceptance, even more after the COVID-19 pandemic experience.
