Writing for money seems to me to be a worthwhile goal for enterprising Christian writers. Most of the books I own I paid for. I assume the authors made money through my book purchasing efforts.
Recently when I discovered an online writing course that teaches writing as a viable Christian business concept, I thought I should order it. No starving author wrote this writer e-course was my first impression.
If you want to see the see the course first and then come back, click on the link above or Writing Ministry to see how two Christian entrepreneurs launched their own lucrative writing ministry.
What I like about the creators of the Proven Self Publishing Course, Jason Miles and Jim Cockrum, is that they teach what they are actually doing, which is making money through self publishing.
They even have a special section in their Christian Writing Course that addresses how pastors can profit from their writing skills while fulfilling their call to ministry.
But once I began reading the materials on their unique way to make money online, I saw a positive approach for any of us who have wondered if we could write for profit.
Usually creative writing courses focus on the techniques needed for a career as a writer. The creativity described in this self publishing course is in developing a business on How To Make Money Writing.
By the way, if the idea of making money through writing somehow turns you off for some reason or another, you have missed how Christian authors of the ages have financed their ministry efforts through writing.
The emphasis of this Christian writing course includes how to become an author as they share how to create an income stream using a very specialized approach that I would describe as launching a Christian publishing business.
Now if launching your self publishing business is a concept totally new to you, I would encourage you to do what I have done, learn how through the Proven Self Publishing Course.
Perhaps you are a pastor wondering how you can supplement your ministry income. If you have been on this website before, the very reason I started this site was to speak to career change for pastors. Yet that change need not be away from your present ministry but expanding the reach of your ministry.
Perhaps you are a layperson who desires to fund your church's ministry efforts and you see Christian publishing as the way to do so.
In these tight financially times I am often asked me by those exploring career change options, how can they can make money on the internet.
My response to enterprising Christian entrepreneurs is to learn how writing for money can bless you financially as you bless others through your Christian publishing efforts.
Included as a bonus in the Proven Publisher Course is a guide for pastors as well as non-profit organizations that reveals a funding strategy that can increase their income by launching a writing/publishing endeavor.
