Let's Make Ministry Easier

On this page, you will find resources we have discovered over twenty-five years in serving the church that will make your life in ministry easier.  We have experienced personally how each of the resources below have successfully worked in a ministry setting and we heartily recommend each one.

Minding His Business

The church is not a business but it conducts business, and in most cases, the people conducting church business are not trained and/or experienced in business. This book was written to make your life in ministry easier by making the business of ministry easier to manage. In 40 short, easy to read chapters you will find real life examples with practical solutions you can use in your ministry today.
