As I read the title of this blog post I cringe. I’ve always had a love hate relationship with ministries that sell stuff to churches. I love the outcomes of such ministries and I hate that ministries of this nature are suspect to so many. I was blindsided when God called me to Christian publishing and have been thrilled to see how NavPress manages the tension between ministry and business.
I have made it my goal to be certain any initiative I am involved with includes at least three wins for the church and one win for the company. After all, the church is Jesus’ bride and we are to resource her.
I was thrilled when I presented an idea to the NavPress team and, without hesitation, the powers that be agreed to it. Through December your group leaders can choose Bible studies from a list of 195 and get them at 50% off. All you as a pastor have to do is create a link from your website to the list (that’s three easy steps). If you’d like to see how to make this happen just click on this word… LINK
The three wins for the church…
1. 50% off the normal costs of 195 Bible studies in a financially difficult season.
2. Your group ministry has made it possible for a small group leader to easily find their next Bible study. You build your reputation as a resourcer of your leaders and they save time hunting for their next study.
3. You, the small group point person, will not have to spend your time in conversation with group leaders guiding them to their next study.
The one win for NavPress… Your group ministry finds out about a plethora of resources that will be available for years to come.
