I’m sitting on a big project right now. So stoked. Can’t say much. But I can at least ask a very cool question:

Would you or your church pay a small fee to have professional print collateral (weekly handouts, handbills, response cards, business cards, letterhead, posters, billboards) custom designed for your church?

I know, I know. Your church isn’t that big. But it should be thinking big. Because we have a lot of people to reach. And let’s face it: we reach them – in part – through how things look. We are a visual-value based society. And the Church is not exempt. If anything, She’s called to lead.

I know lots of small churches would love to move beyond Microsoft clip art, multicolored copy paper, and Papyrus and Times New Roman typefaces. (Or someone should inform them). But hiring a full-time, or even part-time, graphic designer is pretty low on the Board’s priority list.

So what if you could hire us?

New Life’s Creative Team helps your church standout in your town’s culture in a big way, you help keep our staff employed.

Every business venture, Kingdom or not, must be a win-win to work. This could be your church’s chance to radically change the way it presents itself to the community. And this is our chance to invest into the Body on a global scale, and fund the development of the creative arts within the Kingdom.

Open to all your thoughts and comments, especially if you or your church would like to chat. No pressure. ch:

THANK YOU JESUS! Christopher this message was music to my ears. I pray the LORD BLESSes you, indeed! And enlarges your territory… With His hand in yours… God Blesses!
I am so thankful that the Lord uses you in His mighty and creative ways. I pray now there are ears to hear… “thinking big”!
Love out loud… in Christ!

    Thank you for the prayers. Helping people mature their vision is often a slow and tedious process, but the outcome is worth fighting for. Souls are in the balance. As always, your encouragement is a blessing.

The church does need to be relevant and up to date so you’d be tapping into a real area of need. If your prices are reasonable, it might be a great success.

    I obviously agree fully. 🙂 Right on.

    We’re working on a pricing structure that allows churches to select only what they can afford.

Fantastic! I believe that a church mirrors a business in many ways. A different sort of business, but a business none the less. All businesses should be involved in the consistent pursuit of excellence, and appearance combined with effective communication are important ingredients in that recipe. Based on the print “product” that I have seen come out of New Life, it is obvious that you have the right vision, team, and talent; so it looks like a natural fit to me. The only question that I have, is when will you hang a shingle on a small store front and offer these services to businesses other than churches? Consider me customer number one.

    Thank you, Will. Wonderful, well articulated comment.

    And, yes, something is in the works. We’d be honored to assist you.
