JM18: Drake De Long-Farmer talks about ministry side hustle and how to manage millennials on staff.
Should a pastor have a side-hustle, hobby or entrepreneurial ambition they feel led to pursue?
This podcast itself is a side-hustle so I must be careful how I answer that. "Of course, a pastor should have a side-hustle," says this session's guest.
In session 18 I meet a new friend and like-minded ministry leader. Drake De Long-Farmer is an executive pastor at Gateway Alliance Church, a young and growing church in Edmonton, Alberta. Drake works with a young staff, many of whom have to work part-time in another job. Drake draws from the well of working through his own ambitious pursuits plus his experience managing a young team at Gateway.
Drake is a young leader that we are excited to follow and watch God's anointing on his pursuits.
