Aside from tithes, offerings, and gifts, do you know there are some business ideas for pastors to make money?
If you’re into the pastoral line and you’re looking to start up side businesses to fortify your financial status, then you’re definitely on the right page. And you’re not alone.
The pastoral call is demanding. You need to study hard, prepare sermons to canvas, and truly get to become intimate with the spirit of God. But the truth is – you need money.
There are expenses you need to shoulder as a gospel minister, and you don’t want to depend on the pockets of the members of the Church for survival.
Primarily, you need multiple sources of income to garner enough money to both help your flock with and handle other church activities – especially as it has to do with giving and outreach.
Without taking much time, you’ll get a dose of 21 business ideas for pastors right here, and you can start any of these businesses and expect lucrative returns in the long run.
Some of the business ideas for pastors on this list won’t cost you a dime, and others… quite costly to start up.
That being said, here are 21 business ideas for pastors that you can delve into and make some extra money (even more than the $99k average pastor’s salary).
21 Business Ideas for Pastors to Make Money in 2021
1. Freelance Writing
Freelance writing is simply writing to get paid. This is made easier by the availability of freelance marketplaces on the internet like Fiverr and Upwork.
Now you won’t spend a dime here, and as a pastor, you can decide on how many hours of your precious day you spend working and hunting freelance writing jobs.
To get started, you need to be sure you can really write about something fabulously. My best bet is you’re a religious guru and the religious niche is most related to your career (being a pastor).
So you want to search for freelance writing jobs in the religious niche – vet the freelance marketplaces for employers looking for writers in the religious niche.
This is pretty easy as most of the freelance platforms have an algorithm to match your expertise with employers’ demands. So if you’re a tech guru and you fill it into your profile, the platforms automatically queue up jobs related to tech.
Quickly sign up on either of the best freelance platforms and get to work. You can take 2 or 3 hours off your day to build a profitable freelance writing career in no time.
Brands are willing to pay you a lot of money to write brief, highly compelling, and converting sales speeches and product descriptions for their products.
It’s like this – you write for brands and help them with copy-writing tasks, you get paid. Copywriting doesn’t take a whole day. It’s a skill you need to master (at least to some point).
Copy-writing isn’t cranking up a 1000-word article or a 10,000-word guide. Product copies are short and highly compelling. They’re tagged along with products and easy to read.
This is easily one of the best business ideas for pastors looking to make extra money. It gets easier to write copies that turn random (potential) buyers into loyal customers over time.
And once you gain mastery of this art, then you’ll be on the payroll of multiple brands in a short while. This means more jobs and more money.
3. Public Speaking
Public speaking at events, programs, and other gatherings is one of the best business ideas for pastors as it is closely in line with what you do frequently – speaking.
While you might not consider this a business idea or even take it to become a business in itself, but public speakers not trundling the pastoral path cash in on public speaking as a business big time.
If you own a car, you can do this part-time as a side gig. Being a pastor, you can explore your leisure hours during weekends to pick up random passengers using a ride-sharing app like Uber.
It’s easy and doesn’t cost much. But you’ll need to have a car of your own first to make things much easier. You get paid for every passenger you pick up and you can do this as many times in a day.
Another way around this is hiring someone to run around in your car using the ride-sharing app while you supervise the earnings and transactions.
Come to terms with the staff you hire as to how much you’ll take home daily or weekly or monthly. And how much he/she keeps daily (or weekly/monthly). This way, it becomes an excellent passive income stream.
5. Graphics Designing
You’re a graphics designer or do you have a list of good graphics designers who design your church handbills and billboards? Then you can leverage the profit potential of graphics designing.
It’s two ways – source for graphics design jobs on freelance platforms and outsource the jobs to experts in the field, or reach out to brands and organizations offering to help them out with everything graphics designing.
On freelance platforms like Fiverr and Upwork, graphics designers get paid like rockstars. And you don’t have to do it yourself as a pastor.
You can hunt for these jobs and outsource the task to someone else (apparently a reliable and efficient graphics designer). It costs nothing to explore this business idea. In fact, you can start right away. But if you’ll farm out the tasks to experts, then you need to pay them off (which will cost money).
6. Ghost Writing
More than 80% of successful brands and writers don’t compose their articles in solitaire. They get help from brilliant writers who can replicate any writing voice, flow, and spirit.
For a pastor, this shouldn’t be a problem (as you can speak in any manner of voice you choose to). You want to brush up on your writing skill to venture this path.
Ghostwriting is a profitable business idea for pastors, and the best part is it costs nothing to start up. You’re the asset here. And you get paid (more than $1k per an article in most cases) to cobble up great content.
7. Real Estate
I know one too many pastors making it big in the real estate industry. Don’t think they don’t do great with their ministerial purpose because they have just more than the name – they’re spiritually upright.
With your influence as a pastor, people trust you. And you can turn this trust into opportunities that’ll generate good money. The real estate industry works with capital and trust.
I mean, people need to trust you enough to leave you a million-dollar worth of property. You don’t have to look too far to start this. And I bet someone in your congregation is into the real estate industry big-time.
Start from there and tap into the already existing influence and trust you’ve built over the years to propel your real estate venture. In the end, it’s all about buying and selling properties – you can push buttons with phone calls.
If you are already into real estate or you just want to join the business, you can register on popular real estate listing platforms with a token as a subscription to sell or lease out your properties.
If you’re in Nigeria, Realty9ja.com is a good platform to buy, rent, lease or sell properties.
8. Gospel Blogging
I don’t want to veer off the gospel line. So let’s stick with gospel blogging (which is still very profitable). Start a gospel blog, answer questions, and you can transcribe your sermons to text documents with the help of freelancers or your media team (if they’re that good).
The first step – your niche is gospel. More than 2 billion people are already interested. Secondly, start your blog. This guide will teach you how to start a free blog even with an Android phone.
Reach out to other gospel bloggers who will be quick and happy to connect with you. Have your media team create guest content on several other gospel blogs to build your blog’s authority, and then you can start launching ultra-relevant content on your blog to get traffic.
When the traffic starts turning in, monetize your blog using affiliate links, Google ads, or sell your own books (and products) – more on this soon.
What you’ll blog about? There are thousands of questions currently unanswered about God. You know better. Provide answers in a way that people will keep coming back for more answers.
9. Gospel YouTube Channel Monetization
Allen Parr is one gospel minister who reaches thousands of viewers with his gospel YouTube channel called “The Beat”. He answers sensitive and controversial questions pertaining to the gospel and makes money doing that.
How so? With more than 740k subscribers, he earns from selling affiliate products, YouTube ads, and even has a $497 membership program.
You can do this too, and you don’t have to be a gifted video editor or video maker to begin. Hire someone who can edit videos brilliantly, and efficiently. Or utilize the digital strength of your Church media team to publish video content consistently on your YouTube channel.
This is inarguably a top business idea for pastors, choristers, and anyone called into the fivefold.
10. Virtual Assistant
Virtual assistants work remotely and they help with tasks admins don’t have the luxury of time to handle. They edit content, reply to emails, and organize meeting arrangements.
But that’s not all – they get paid real good to do just that. To become a virtual assistant, all you need to do is apply. Websites like Indeed, Fancy Hands, Magic, and PeoplePerHour are great at listing Virtual Assistant jobs.
You have only so many hours in a day to carry out your V.A. tasks and keep the cash before it’s time to mount the altar.
It’s great to write. But great writing mostly beckons on the strength of great proofreading. As a proofreader, you vet content and mitigate unnecessary errors that introduce unprofessionalism.
Proofreading jobs are rampant on freelance platforms and this is another business idea you don’t have to spend money, to begin with.
On the bright side, craft corporate letters to brands, send emails to different organizations, and inform them you can anchor their proofreading process with dexterity.
It doesn’t take 10 hours to proofread a document – you can proofread a 3000-word document in about 30 minutes, and do that for several documents to earn $100 – $350 every time (depending on the budget of your freelance employer).
You also have the option to outsource proofreading tasks to skilled proofreaders you know and take up multiple proofreading tasks to earn more.
12. Crypto Trading
Crypto has come to stay. And the decentralized system of financial transactions isn’t hostile to pastors either.
You can tap into the volatile nature of cryptocurrencies while maintaining and running your ministry. With about $100, you can start trading crypto yourself.
The best investment is to invest in yourself by learning to trade crypto versus investing in crypto trading firms to help you out. Invest time to learn everything you can about crypto.
If you can understand God’s word with accuracy, then crypto isn’t as challenging. There’s a possibility to exercise your grace and faith in the crypto world. Who knows? You could execute a trade to make 40,000 times the initial asset you invested within a single day.
To get started, acquire the knowledge. And get to know the best trading platforms out there. Personally (out of my professional experience as a Crypto Trader), Binance is best for trading.
But if you want to acquire cryptocurrencies and leave them there to germinate over the coming years, then go for the Blockchain app (or Binance if you can control the urge to not execute daily trading anytime you set eyes on the crypto market).
13. Catfish Farming
Catfish farming is profitable for anyone looking to start a business. As a pastor, this business idea fits in too. It’s capital intensive and highly lucrative.
You don’t have to become a fish farmer overnight. Hire someone to set up the fish farm and coordinate the activities of the farm.
When the fishes reach the maturity stage, you can sell them to make money or start up a catfish barbeque business off the produce of your fish farm.
14. Poultry Farming
Poultry farming is a great business idea for pastors and you don’t have to do it yourself. It’s cheap to start up and doesn’t cost much to maintain either (depending on the size of your farm).
As a Pastor, you’ll have a lot of time to supervise your poultry farm from time to time while you focus on what God wants you to do.
You can hire a staff to maintain and treat the Poultry just right while you focus on other things. Poultry farming also joins the list of businesses you can comfortably start from home without having to bother about accommodation (or a landed space for the business).
15. Laundry/Dry Cleaning
Not very many folks have the avalanche of time and strength to maintain their clothes. This is a good thing as it ushers in the need for Drycleaning and laundry services.
Your pastoral line is compatible with this business as the majority of members patronize the services of a laundryman. You probably don’t have to do too many promos before a swarm of customers darkens the door of your laundry/dry cleaning business center.
Obviously, you won’t get to do the task of washing and ironing yourself; it’s onerous. Hire staff or more to get things done – your responsibilities are largely supervisory, financial, and promotional.
16. Event Equipment Rental Business
Owning a rental service business is one of the top business ideas for pastors looking to make money while making a positive impact in their divinely fabricated gospel ministerial path.
So how it works is you acquire equipment like chairs, musical instruments, and more than spice up and make for a great event. Next up, you list them up for lease and get paid whenever clients come around to hire them.
Customers hire and return the equipment within a specific timeframe so they’re up for lease again. The equipment is always yours, but you earn from them. This way they become assets generating a steady flow of income.
Whether it’s a birthday party, an academic ceremony, a wedding, a night beach party, or a matriculation ceremony – someone got paid for every hired piece of equipment in the scene.
You can start this business yourself as a pastor, and let the Church know about it.
The Church will mostly constitute a huge proportion of your first loyal clients regardless of the business your startup. You have leverage here. You’re trusted and it’ll be easy to scale any business you start up pretty fast. That’s Grace.
17. E-commerce Business
E-commerce websites make a lot of money. In 2020 alone, Amazon generated a net income of 21.33 billion dollars.
Your e-commerce website might not scratch 10% of that figure in the first few years, but having an e-commerce website is definitely a step towards building a passive income empire even as a pastor.
Don’t look too far, your e-commerce website could be all about selling Church items like microphones, pulpits, and cords.
If you have a knack for multiple items, then you can integrate other niche products into your e-commerce inventory.
Starting an e-commerce website/business might cost a few hundred bucks as you’ll need to run frequent adverts or depend on a long-term content marketing strategy to build traffic, attract your target audience, and boost sales.
18. T-shirt Designing
Do you know you can design t-shirts for free and get paid when people buy your t-shirt designs? On platforms (and web apps) like Teespring, Amazon Merch, and RedBubble, you can create your own fashion store stuffed with your designs.
The designs are printed on-demand which means whenever a buyer places an order for them, the company prints and sends the t-shirts.
It doesn’t cost a dime to start doing this and you can get started right now. The more designs you have, the more chances you have at making more sales and more money.
It takes about 5 minutes or 20 at most to design a virtual t-shirt (but it depends on the kind of design you have in mind; how well you want to design your products).
Dropshipping is not a new trend and it’s one of the top business ideas for pastors to make money in real-time. How it works is you create an online store, connect it to a supplier’s website, and upload product pictures (with the prices) on your store.
Whenever someone clicks to buy, the order redirects to the supplier’s website, the supplier ships the item and you get to keep the markup profit. And yes, you don’t need to know everything about dropshipping to kickstart your side business.
You can hire someone to build your dropshipping store, design and promote it, handle everything that has to do with the online business while you focus on other things.
If you’re still in doubt as to how well the dropshipping business is profitable for pastors (and anyone else), then the $10 million/year dropshipping story of Alexander and Andreas will set your motivation on steroids.
20. Book Publishing
It’s normal for pastors to publish books and cash in on imparting the world with their knowledge, experience, and revelation. But it’s a business idea not very many pastors consider.
And you can tap into it to create an inflow of income your generation will play benefactors to. Some of the wealthiest preachers and even motivational speakers earn a fortune from the sales of books they author.
That being said, nobody writes a book in 24 hours sitting on a comfy couch. Start by co-authoring a book or become a guest preacher/speaker for a gospel TV station/show.
Move it up to writing and publishing leaflets, pamphlets, and gospel articles. Study hard, and build enough intellectual/spiritual momentum to write your first book.
21. Stock Trading
Stock trading is one of the online businesses you can get into with very little capital as a pastor. It’s risky, volatile, and works with a set of time frames.
As the crypto market, the stock market is really volatile. You work with a number of indicators, charts, and signals to determine the direction of the market.
The best investment, just like in crypto, is to learn the trade. Acquire the skill to trade stocks, and then you can capitalize on your experience and knowledge to maximize profits.
Conclusion: Business Ideas for Pastors
While these business ideas for pastors listed here, won’t make you as rich as Joel Osteen or T. D. Jakes overnight, they relieve you of the stress of devising uncanny schemes to sieve funds from your Church.
The best part is some of the business ideas on this list that cost nothing to start up can transition into passive income ventures generating thousands of dollars monthly for you as a pastor.
In the end, it’s all about fulfilling the call of God while making enough money (passively) to push the gospel further and live a fulfilled lifestyle.

Shopping with Heroshe: Shipping from the UK to Nigeria and Ghana
As the world has become a global village with the internet, borders are no longer barriers to shopping, especially in African countries. Heroshe continues to defy the odds with her seamless shopping experience on the continent.
The first time I used Heroshe to ship some items from the USA to my place here in Nigeria, I became an unofficial ambassador of the company. Not just me, a lot of people are giving the company great reviews too.
If you need a succinct review of Heroshe, kindly check the previous post published here.
Previously, Heroshe only shipped from the USA to Nigeria, but the good news now is that Heroshe has started facilitating shipments from the UK to Nigeria and Ghana.
What does this new update mean?
You now have more choices to buy a range of products from any store in the UK or USA and get it to your place in Nigeria or Ghana.
For instance, if you want to buy anything gadgets or appliances, you know that USA online stores like Amazon, eBay, BestBuy, etc. are there for you.
The UK is known for luxury brands for fashion and apparel ranging from classic tailoring on London’s Savile Row to trendy streetwear from brands like Topshop. Or maybe footwear from brands like Clarks and Dr. Martens. Or stylish and eclectic home decor items from classic homeware at John Lewis to contemporary designs at Habitat.
This new update from Heroshe really opens the door to a broader range of products!
How to Ship Items from the UK Using Heroshe
Just like shipping from the US, the process remains simple and efficient, ensuring that shopping across from the UK stores to Nigeria and Ghana is a hassle-free experience.
Here’s how to start;
Sign Up or Log In
If this is your first time hearing about Heroshe, you will need to create an account before you can do anything.
If you click here to sign up, you’ll be given $2 in your Heroshe wallet, I will also earn the same for inviting you (Note that this is not compulsory).
If you’re an existing user, simply login to your account.
Get Your UK Address
You don’t need to do or pay for anything, once you sign up successfully, login to your account, and your personalized UK address will be waiting for you.
You can use this address on any store you’re shopping from, as the personalized address acts as a local point of contact between you and the store vendor.
Once the vendor sends the item(s) to your UK address, Heroshe will take over the rest.
Go to any UK store of your choice, go to the settings tab, and change your location or address to this personalized UK address given to you by Heroshe.
(Note that you don’t need a VPN while you’re exploring items on the UK stores, in fact, don’t use a VPN at all as the online stores may detect it and your account may be banned.)
Once you change the address on the store to your UK address, start browsing for items, add items to your cart, and proceed to checkout.
Delivery to Your UK Address
Once you are done paying for the items, the online store will send your package to the UK address you added.
And Heroshe will immediately notify you once they receive your items.
From there, you can start tracking the day you’ll receive the items in Nigeria or Ghana.
Get your items in Nigeria or Ghana
After 14 days the items get to your UK address, and Heroshe will send them to your country.
Note that you will need to use PayPal to top up your Heroshe wallet so that you can pay the shipping fee. If you don’t have one, watch this YouTube video for a guide to create one for free.
If you’re in Nigeria, your items will land in Lagos, if you’re in Ghana, they will send the item to your house directly.
You can then go to the Lagos warehouse and pick up your item free of charge.
But if you’re not in Lagos, don’t worry, Heroshe is not leaving you yet, until you get and confirm the item(s). At this junction, you can ask Heroshe to ship the items down to your city but you’ll pay a small fee of course.
In my own case, I live in Osun State, here in Nigeria and Heroshe sent the item to me via a logistics company, not even a public bus.
So either you go to the Lagos warehouse to pick up your item for free, or you pay a small fee to have it delivered to your city. Either way, Heroshe promises you will get your items.
Shipping from the UK to Nigeria or Ghana is as simple as that.
But there’s a problem.
Not with Heroshe but with Nigeria and/or Ghana. Most of the time, it is very difficult to pay for items in foreign stores.
You did nothing wrong but your card will be declined because of where you’re coming from.
That’s a really big problem.
We thought virtual dollar card providers were here to help but they all turned out to be something we’d never expect.
Don’t give up, Heroshe can still help you.
Aside from shipping, Heroshe also offers “Buy for Me” services.
What is Heroshe’s Buy for Me?
Picture the Heroshe’s Buy for Me as someone you send to the market to help you buy groceries.
You give an item of what you want to buy to the person, you give the person the money to buy the items and also, you pay for his time and transport.
All you have to do is to expect the person to hand over the groceries to you.
That makes sense right?
Heroshe can become your shopper, all you need to do is to contact them that you would like to use their Buy for Me services and the customer care rep will take it up with you.
UPDATE: I contacted Heroshe support a few hours ago and I learned that the buy-for-me service is currently on hold, so depending on when you are reading this, kindly contact the support if the service is available.
What you need to know about Heroshe’s Buy for Me services
- Heroshe will not recommend or scout for items, you will send them links to your preferred items and they’ll buy them for you.
- Heroshe’s Buy for Me services cost an additional 20%. E.g if the item you’re buying is $200, you’ll be paying $240 in total or its equivalent in your local currency.
- Paying the 20% additional fee doesn’t mean you’ll not pay for shipping, you’ll still pay for shipping.
And that takes us to the next big question;
How much does Heroshe charge for shipping items from the UK?
Heroshe charges $8 per lb or pound to ship from the UK down to Lagos in Nigeria where you can go pick it up for free.
If you cannot go to the Lagos pickup station for your items, Heroshe will charge you an additional $15 to send the item to your house in Lagos.
If you’re outside Lagos, Heroshe charges an additional $20 to get the item to your city.
Heroshe doesn’t have a pickup station in Ghana for now, so the cost to get your item from the UK to your house in Ghana is $18 per lb or pound.
It is also worth noting that Heroshe would round up any float to a whole number.
For instance, if the weight of the item you want to ship is 10.5, heroshe will round it up to 11. If it’s 2.5, it’ll become 3.
What’s the breakdown to ship from the UK to Nigeria or Ghana?
The breakdown to ship your items from the UK to Nigeria or Ghana with Heroshe (Let’s assume the weight is 4.5 lbs) will look like this:
- If you’re shipping to Ghana
Cost of item —- $200
Buy for me —- $40
Ship to Ghana – $90 (5 x 18)
Total —– $330
So you’ll be paying Heroshe a total cost of $330 and if you can pay for the item yourself, remove the Buy for Me, you’ll now be paying $290.
- If you’re shipping to Nigeria
Cost of item ——- $200
Buy for Me ——- $40
Ship to Lagos —- $40 (5 x 8)
Total —— $280
If you can pay for the item yourself, you’ll be paying $240 to Heroshe. If you want to get the item in your house in Lagos, you’ll be paying an additional $15. If you’re outside Lagos, you’ll pay an additional $20.
If you want to pay yourself, you might consider using reliable card providers. For instance, Chipper Cash works for me
Start shopping beyond borders with Heroshe!
Heroshe’s expansion to support shipping from the UK to Nigeria and Ghana marks a significant stride towards creating a truly global shopping experience.
With its user-friendly platform, cost-saving features, and commitment to customer satisfaction, Heroshe continues to be a frontrunner in transforming international shopping into a seamless, accessible, and exciting endeavor. Say goodbye to borders and hello to a world of shopping possibilities with Heroshe.
This update not only reflects Heroshe’s commitment to customer satisfaction but also its dedication to staying at the forefront of international shopping trends.
As the world of e-commerce continues to evolve, Heroshe remains a reliable companion for shoppers seeking the best of both local and global markets.
If you have any questions that are not covered in this blog post, kindly contact Heroshe customer support on Twitter or on the website.
How to Get Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) in Nigeria
Getting a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) in Nigeria is very simple, fast, and free of charge. I’ll be showing you how to get one for yourself or your business.
But before then, Why do you need TIN?
Taxpayer Identification Number (or “TIN”) is simply a number attached to you or your business that keeps track of your tax history.
it is an important number that every individual and business must have because it is your responsibility as a citizen of a country or a business in that country to pay Tax to the government.
Recently, a popular Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo was given a 7-day ultimatum to pay her ₦18m tax bill or she’ll be probed.
I was trying to create an Upwork account last week and I was asked to drop my TIN before I can fully utilize Upwork’s services.
Aside from paying Taxes, you need a TIN if you want to open a corporate bank account for your business or company.
And depending on what you need from Banks or any institution such as a loan or grant, they may require your TIN.
If you’re a freelancer or someone trying to apply for a job abroad, your TIN may be compulsory before you’re considered.
So let me show you how to get Personal and Business TIN in Nigeria starting with personal first;
