Publishing

After publishing over $10 million dollars worth of award winning and best-selling video curriculum, we have learned a lot about what it takes to professionally publish, package, and sell video-based resources to local churches around the world.

Over the last 15 years, we both produced and published over 500 fully custom church-wide campaign curriculum for most of the major Christian publishers, para-church ministries, best-selling authors and local church pastors. We have proven that we know small groups, how to publish video curriculum, and how to sell it to local churches.

 

Over a decade ago, I helped to put together the 40 Days of Purpose campaign kit for Rick Warren that started with my team coaching 29 churches that over the years went on to be 29,000 churches worldwide. As a result of the past decade of learnings, innovations and insights, we will be putting together fully custom church-wide campaign kits, based off of your video teaching series, and helping you to promote it to other churches around the country.

As a result, we have developed 4 new Publishing Programs that we are rolling out to our existing and future church partners. Each of these programs offer a more cost-effective offering, where the church can receive free production services in exchange for shared revenue on the sales of the curriculum and campaign to other churches. This way, churches could recoup their costs and potentially allow the pastor to receive royalties from the sale of those resources, similar to writing a trade book with a Christian publisher. With this model everybody wins – the church, the pastor, and the impact in your community.

That’s why we are so excited to announce 4 NEW Publishing Programs for our new and existing church partners!
