Unique Opportunity To Grow Your Ministry

Share Stories of Real People Who Found God Through Your Ministry In A New Book

Get Published in 2019

As a Pastor, you speak to people every week, who have been impacted by your ministry. What if they could co-author a book with you, sharing stories of how they became friends of God?

Whether it’s a story of miraculous healing, amazing conversion, hope when all seemed lost, or courage in the midst of adversity, overcoming addiction, abuse, a cult, or spiritual bondage, there are many people who have experienced the goodness of God through your ministry.

So we have created a simple process to write books that reaches more people for Christ by getting your church or your ministry friends involved as co-authors.

My team will work with each co-author and write the book for you based on phone interviews, transcribing and editing.

Let’s talk about how to reach your community through a book.

Grow Your Ministry

Imagine what happens when up to 30 people in your church or ministry co-authors a book with you. They will share the book with their friends, co-workers, family, and neighbors. The impact of your ministry will grow exponentially.

Become A Published Author

You will be an author of a book that will be distributed nationally and globally. Each of your co-authors will contribute one chapter and have their name, photo and bio included in the book. It’s the perfect “win-win” situation for everyone.

Get New Opportunities

You will be equipped through the Friend of God Academy to turn your book into a life-changing impactful ministry that opens new doors and generates income. Your co-authors can also use the book to get leads for their business.

Earn Royalty

Every co-author preorders a minimum of 100 books each to sell or give away. Additional copies are ordered at discounted rates. Earn royalty through your own sales and through major online retailers. The more you sell, the more you make.

Raise Funds For Project

Optional: Use the book to raise funds for your ministry project. Please speak to your Friend of God representative for all the details.

How It Works

Step 1.
Application

Fill out a simple form, and submit it. Someone from our editorial team will then contact you. Once we customize an agreement to meet your needs, we turn stories into a published book.



Step 2.
Complete the Manuscript

Now we collaborate with you first, and then with your co-authors to write, edit, format and develop your manuscript to be at a publishing, trade level of excellence.



Step 3.
Publishing

Next, we design a beautiful cover and create an interior layout of the book. We also coordinate all the publishing details (ISBN, bio, description, etc.).




Step 4.
Distribution

Then, we print copies of the book for each co-author (everyone will get 100 or more copies depending upon their package) and distribute the books through major online retailers.



Step 5.
Marketing

At this point, we secure authentic Amazon reviews, create a full online press kit for the book for you and your co-authors to use, write media posts and create graphics for your social media accounts, and build a dedicated website for the book with your bio and photo.

Step 6.
Coaching

We help also you through online courses to strategically develop a plan to best leverage the book to grow your ministry locally and nationally. You will learn how to effectively use the book as an outreach tool, small group curriculum, sermon series, and a fundraising tool.
