The Ministry to Business Guide is the one-stop shop I wish I had before I started writing. Even with years of experience as a Christian blogger, author, speaker, and online business owner, I gleaned a wealth of valuable, practical tips from this resource. The Ministry to Business Guide gave me renewed motivation to use the gifts I've been given to glorify God while also generating additional income for my family.
This guide is AMAZING. It’s an absolute goldmine of wisdom. Wow! It’s the wise mentor you’ve always wanted, the brilliant business brain you’ve longed to pick, and the passionate creative you’ve ardently admired. Lisa Jo, Becky, Katie and Jon know what it takes to develop a ministry that both gives life and contributes to our livelihood. And in these pages, show us how to do it with integrity, dignity, and diligence. This is a much needed conversation and an incredibly helpful tool.

In my more than 10 years of blogging, authoring books, and now editing books for a major publishing house, I am constantly fielding questions from writers. How do I get an agent? Should I self-publish? How do I start a podcast? What are best practices for social media? Along comes the Ministry to Business Guide. This is the must-have, shorthand answer to the hundreds of questions that every writer is asking right now. If you are ready to take the next step, I highly recommend this guide.

I've been blogging for 14 years. Since before Pinterest and Instagram. This guide answered every question I've ever had about growing my ministry as a business. After years of listening to podcasts and taking courses, I still wasn't sure how to turn my ministry into a profitable business. Now I have the tools to grow so that I can serve more ladies. And the templates and extras, worth their weight in gold. I can't want to put the tips into place and grow the speaking side of my business.

What’s better than working hard to figure hard things out yourself? Having others who’ve already been there and done that hold your hand and take you where you wanted to go…faster! That’s exactly what the four Ministry to Business veterans who wrote this masterpiece have done. As someone who’s been attempting to navigate the realm of social media as a way to make a living and not just give my life away the past few years, I wish I’d had this in my back pocket (ok…google drive) a lot sooner. It’s got something (and then some) for anyone and everyone looking to take their life back and truly make their ministry a business, novice and seasoned alike. This guide is my new go-to for a fresh take on how I run my business…and better yet, grow it!
My blog began seven years ago while following Lisa-Jo Baker's five minute Friday adventures, shortly after my first son was born. I know it seems silly looking back, but those five minutes changed my life. I wish I would have had the Ministry to Business Guide then, full of all the information to start a business and not just a wistful hobby/passion. Not only does this guide include information, but even better, it also includes templates and more resources to help you on your entrepreneurial journey. Even today after blogging/podcasting for years, I can't believe how much I learned that I can add to my business to help increase my bottom line and still be a servant to my community. Thank you for this amazing resource.

The authors personally understand the divide between serving in ministry and making enough money to pay the bills. I have taken a lot of courses to stay current on marketing trends, but the collective insights from the writers provided tested strategies and practical how-to lists to monetize your passion and get a paycheck. While I was reading, I found myself scrambling for a pencil and paper to start creating action items for my own business—the inspiration and ideas were too good to miss! The breadth and depth of tips provide just the right fit for any season of professional growth. Grab a pencil and get ready to take notes that will help you focus and fuel your career!

When I began reading this powerhouse guide, I assumed it would be something I wish I’d had ten years ago when I was a newbie at writing publicly in the field of ministry. However, after completing it, I discovered a deep gold mine of information I still didn’t know—but now do. This guide honed in on my own personal questions about asking for payment in the first place and provided me with a clear, biblical way through those questions. It showed me how to best offer my gifts as a service to others—what to do and what not to do, as well as advantages and disadvantages of each avenue of revenue. Considerable in content yet concise in format, this is a guide I'd love to have had ten years ago but am thrilled to learn from still today.
