I love this term – Pastorpreneur (Pastor/Entrepeneur). It describes the kind of leaders we need in the church today. Saw it first in Dave Brownings book Deliberate Simplictiy. Here is how Browning describes the pastorpreneur:

  • a kingdom-minded leader who has a heart for people and the ingenuity to reach them.
  • so concerned about reaching lost people that they will launch a new ministry endeavor to save them.
  • self-inspired and self-directed to fulfill God’s calling on his or her life.
  • comfortable being a trendsetter rather than a replicator.

Asking God to raise up more pastorpreneurs.
