Professional Publishing for Ministry Professionals
The last words Jesus spoke to his disciples before ascending into heaven was to be His witnesses in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth. Today that means your community, your region, and to the end of the earth. Is your ministry equipped to reach beyond your community and region, even to the ends of the earth?
As a ministry leader, sharing your message with the world is the most important thing you can do. And you probably already know that a successful book can reach more people around the globe on a deeper level than any other medium. A book can carry your message further than your neighborhood, your state, or even your country. It can reach more people than the biggest auditorium can hold. And its message can go deeper than the most viral video.
If you’re a ministry leader, let me take just a minute to explain why your publishing needs are unique and your expectations may be different from most authors. Your book can play a vital role in expanding the reach and scope of your ministry and even your legacy.
You’ve been given the mission to reach the world. You have the passion and you have the message to reach the world. There’s no doubt that your book can be the most powerful resource you’ll ever create to expand your ministry and your message.
But there’s a problem. You’re a ministry leader, you’re not a publisher. How do you go about publishing a book that will communicate your message, reach the widest audience, and move your ministry far beyond its current boundaries?
So, where do you turn?
Well, you could self-publish. But trying to self-publish your book prevents you from being your best as an author and detracts from your real purpose, which is leading your ministry. Do you really want to spend your time figuring out how to edit a manuscript, design a cover, or print, warehouse, distribute, market, and deliver your books to a global audience?
What about self-publishing companies? They can provide all the expertise you need to publish your book, right? Well … there’s a reason they’re called “self-publishing” companies.
Self-publishing companies aren’t in the business of selling books; they’re in the business of selling authors on their services. It’s a transaction, not a relationship. In the end, you’ve spent a lot of money on services, they move on to the next job, and you’re still “self-published.”
Who you trust as your publishing partner can mean the difference between the success or failure of your book. We use the term “publishing partner” because publishing your book isn’t a transaction; it’s a partnership between you and your publisher. This partnership includes discussing the goals for your book and what you want its success to look like in light of your ministry. It also includes shaping your message for the reader and presenting it to the world in the most effective, professional, and attractive package. Because that is what your book really is, a package, that delivers your message to the world.
The publisher you choose should be in the business of selling books, not just selling authors.
