ceo pastors

Posted by dturn on May 10, 2006

In the latest edition of Black Enterprise magazine, the cover story features mega-church pastors Bishop T.D. Jakes, Bishop Eddie Long, and Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell. The article talks about how these successful pastors direct much of their ministry like a business.

Through having memberships that reach into the tens of thousands, these churches bring in millions of dollars to fund the vast number of ministries they perform.

The article goes on to talk about how these pastors have to take on the role of CEO in operating their churches. With such large amounts of money coming in to the church, there are a lot of responsibilities that these men have to undertake. IRS guidelines must be followed without exception.

Just having a large church and millions of dollars flowing in and out of it can lead to unnecessary scrutiny from the press.

Personally, I find it amazing how many people criticize pastors such as these. Sure, there have been many ministers who have taken advantage of their flocks. These people will be judged, trust me. The men mentioned in this article, and many others, have rebuilt communities, started businesses, and changed the lives of millions of people around the world. Their work should be commended.
