Storytelling is vital for anyone with a big vision. Before they ever ask for support, they need stories to illustrate what they do. Stories to cast the vision for the world they want to see. Stories to share what our great God is doing, and what He still wants to do…

The problem is, not everyone with a vision (a) writes well, (b) has time or energy to write, or (c) understands which strategic stories they need to tell.

That’s where Mission Writers like you come in.

Do you see a person skilled in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before obscure people. (Proverbs 22:29)

I believe God is preparing His people for a move, and we need to sharpen our storytelling skills.

Many of our friends doing the “in the trenches” work of the gospel need help to share their mission effectively. Storytelling for nonprofits, ministry, and especially for missions, requires certain skills. Add in fundraising appeals and other specialized writing, and it’s easy to be overwhelmed.

As Mission Writers, we’re building a skillset, and developing systems and networks to do this important Kingdom work.

Storytelling is essential for business and fundraising, but effective storytelling is sometimes a struggle. My passion is to help entrepreneurs and missionaries recognize and share stories from the field without being overwhelmed by the process of collecting, creating, and sharing content.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts in February 2022 and we'll work through the Mission Writers Framework over the course of one year. During the year, you will use what you're learning to create content and fundraising assets for a group of small nonprofits and missionaries. At the end of the year, you'll have a portfolio, and they'll be fully funded!
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? As a member of our first Mission Writers cohort, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
Who are we writing for?
A group of small nonprofits and ministries is working through a year-long fundraising course, where they are learning about the stories they need to raise funds. Your learning track will parallel theirs, and you get to help them write those stories. Your writing will accelerate the efforts of these wonderful organizations and help them accomplish their goals.
What is the time commitment?
We're estimating 4 to 8 hours a month will give you ample time for coaching calls, communication with your nonprofit partner, writing, and review. Each writer is expected to write six stories over the course of the year to become a certified mission writer. We have two monthly group coaching calls, which will be recorded. All course materials and recordings will be here in the Teachable platform so you can access them at any time. Community Q&A and feedback is in our Slack workgroup.
