Student Loan Debts and Pastors

Can your student loan debts disqualify you for ministry? Some businesses, denominational offices, and churches are now asking about a candidate’s level of debt in the hiring process.

In fact, in his book EntreLeadership, Dave Ramsey says that he makes all potential hires produce a written budget because he doesn’t want to hire someone who will live under constant financial strain with the salary he’s willing to pay them.

How can you get your finances under control so that you’re really free to pursue your calling?
