May pastors have other income?


What is your opinion about a pastor having other income sources? I'm thinking about an incipient church. How can the pastor live if there is not money for him yet?


You might recall that Paul worked for a living while preaching the Gospel. See Acts 18:1-4 and 20:33-35. Many a minister does this, at least in the beginning. It is not wrong to earn a living in some other way until the incipient church can pay him. Seems to me that any pastor who does this out of necessity can claim Paul as his example!
