Writing as Ministry
We are each called by God to deliver His Word to the world — some to preach, some to teach, some to evangelize, and all to pray and encourage. And some also are called to write.
In this theme, we consider this call and start by addressing the importance of writing as ministry. From a personal writing ministry to church members, staff pastors, and others, we move on to cover how to get published and share the Word with larger audiences, and even sometimes secular ones. We offer a plethora of resources, from a video presentation to a large list of recommended books, Web sites, articles, and more, to get the called inspired and equipped to use their language skills, knowledge, and imagination to spread the Word with their pen.
