Creative Ministry Startup

Here's what we'll work on...

  • Ministry Identity - What is your ministry? Discern an engaging name, domain (digital address), logo, what you offer. Your unique way of bringing God's love more fully into the world. I'll help you with tools and advice on how to find what's right for what you do.

  • Social Media - Which ones and why? When and how to post, who are you reaching? This is your digital neighborhood, and I'll help you decide where to set up and what to talk about with those who are waiting for your gifts.

  • Website - This is your digital doorway, and it should be a sanctuary - a taste of the transformation your ministry will bring. I'll design a basic site for you, and show you how to use it, at no extra cost! If you already have one, I'll evaluate it and help you make the very most of it.

  • Email list and automation - This is your own community - the people who follow you and want to hear from you how God loves them; I'll help you set up your basic communication and nurture your relationship with them.

  • What will you charge? - What services are you offering and what do they cost? Money and ministry are often uncomfortable! We'll talk about how to bring the most value in the most sustainable way, and set up a practical payment process.

  • The Business of ministry - nonprofit or LLC? What about taxes? Liability insurance? We'll talk about the business aspects all Creative Ministers need to know.
