"Power Tools for Pastors"

Feel free to forward this to a friend!

A Word from Bill

Greetings Pastors and Church Leaders!

Ministry Master is almost ready for you!

What's "Ministry Master"?

Ministry Master is a simple to use "people organizer" for your church. Unlike some giant web-based systems which will cost your church hundreds of dollars, MM is just $49 as a desktop-based solution for your church.

I have a number of pastors beta-testing it now, and when that is done, and we make a few more tweaks we will be releasing it. I've been using it myself in my own ministry context of a church of 800 and it performs wonderfully!

It is fast and beautiful.

You can download a free Demo for Mac or Windows now.

Just head over to the Software section, find Ministry Master and download the free Demo .

God's best to you and your ministry!

Dr. Bill Miller

Factoid #2: “…about half of all churches in America are made up of fewer than 100 people …quoting Barna Research Group in Evangelical Press News Service on March 1, 1991.” Source: (Anderson, Leith. A Church for the 21st Century. Minneapolis: Bethany House, 1992, p. 180.)

  • Biblical Church Growth: Acts 1:8-- Any church growth efforts need to be motivated by a desire to de-populate hell and transfer people from the Kingdom of Darkness into the Kingdom of Light (Colossians 1:13). That is, the desire for church growth should spur from a desire for conversion growth, not transfer growth. Read more..

  • Kent Mitchell on Ministry Master -- After twelve years in the military and another fourteen years in business God had finally groomed me fully to step out of the work force and into full time ministry as a pastor and church planter.
