Okay, you won’t make millions of dollars. That was a straight up lie. I’m sorry to have disappointed you.
BackstagePastors.com is designed to be a website for Pastors who spend most of their time off stage. This is the place where you’ll find super practical articles on all sorts of ministry related needs and issues. Right now it’s new, but I hope to see a large group of writers develop in this space. Discipleship Pastors, Missions Pastors, Operations guys, etc. etc. If you want to write about preaching prep or leading worship, you’ve come to the wrong place, but if you want to write about facilities and budgets and counseling and HR and . . . you get the point . . . this is your place. Let me tell you how it works.
Engagement Levels-How much would I need to write?
Guest Blogger- Let’s be honest, there are a lot of pastors out there with blogs that have one post a year for the last three years and they all start with the words “So, it’s been a while since I’ve written”. You might be one of them! At BackstagePastors.com, that’s fine. It means that you are guest blogger, not a page author. Rather than have your amazing (albeit infrequent) thoughts languish in some internet backwater of a blogspot account, you can have them appear here instead. If the articles start flowing, we’ll consider bumping you up to page author. Guest bloggers can submit articles and all associated links and images here.
Page Author- You’ve got to put some work in to do this. We’re looking for 10 articles a year, or roughly one a month. They don’t have to be long, but they do need to be at a certain quality level. If you are interested in this, we need three sample articles to see if you are good fit. We also need a short bio on your ministry experience and link to your website. We reserve the right to reject any author for any reason. Send your stuff here.
Let us know if you have any questions.
I was looking for it but could not find your opt in page or your capture page, so that I could subscribe to you blog and get email updates. If I missed it please let me know.
Phil, I have gotten into the first few chapters of your book on defining the XP role and – WOW – you have already hit most if not all of the questions that have been going on in my mind. I have served as an XP in my church for almost 2 years and have been having those “what in the world am I to be doing?” questions lately. It is not I am not busy, but what am I to be most busy about? Your discussion about my relationship to my lead pastor was super helpful in helping me understand some frustrations in my own life with this role as it relates to my LP and how I need to be viewing things differently. I needed the mind shift.
Thank you for your book. Very insightful and parallel to where I am. I look forward to the rest of the book, but wanted to give an early shout out of thanks.
