Is it time to write a book?
I’ve been working on an idea for a book for a few months. Most books and conferences are focused on larger churches in large cities. What about small churches in small towns? They feel left out and alone, forgotten and misunderstood. True success for a church should be based on its faithfulness, not its size.
One of the most rewarding aspects of this blog has been helping smaller churches with limited staff and resources find new ways to do ministry. This blog started in 2006, and now has over 1000 posts. Through this blog, I’ve met numerous people in ministry around the country and even around the world. I would appreciate your prayers as I refine my ideas for the book.
Since I’ve never written a book, my time has been spent trying to understand how the publishing industry works. These two books below have been helpful in understanding the process. I’ve also been learning more about book proposals and the Christian book market from the resources on Michael Hyatt’s website.
