9781514123690: The Christian Band Handbook: Wise Guidance to Build an Extraordinary Music Ministry

Why Struggle for Years, Paying to Play, and Hoping to Make a Difference?

Don't waste time and money trying to create a stir for a fruitless ministry.

Ministering in a Christian band should be fun and exciting. Living the dream—on the road with friends, serving God, performing the music you love. But anyone who has ever tried it knows how quickly the dream can turn into a nightmare. Problems arise, friendships become strained, money is lost, and ministry is compromised. Fun and exciting are seldom words that describe shattered dreams.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Marie Wise has over 30 years of experience in Christian music. She has helped hundreds of Christian bands create extraordinary music ministries. The Christian Band Handbook shares her best tools and wise advice.

Use These Tools To Create an Exciting and Effective Music Ministry Now:

  • Discover what it takes to turn your dreams and visions into reality
  • Define your ministry's mission
  • Find and select the right people to be in the band
  • Choose and protect the best band name
  • Set up your music ministry the right (and legal) way
  • Get the equipment you need at the price you can afford
  • Protect and promote songs you write
  • Create the very best Christian press kit
  • Book great gigs
  • Raise money for the ministry with volunteer help
  • Record the best songs at the right time
  • Make the most money from band merchandise
  • Market your music and your ministry
  • Hire the right people at the right time, and know who you don't need
  • Troubleshoot the toughest ministry stuff
There is no getting around the fact that Christian bands are hard work. Christian musicians do all the work of secular musicians while doing the work of the ministry. Christian musicians must figure out how to survive financially, take care of their families, and stay spiritually strong while endeavoring to lead others closer to Jesus. Ministering in a Christian band is not for the lazy or faint of heart. But if you are willing to work diligently while keeping God as your first love, you can create an extraordinary music ministry.

The Christian Band Handbook can help you avoid the pitfalls that many Christian bands experience. More importantly, The Christian Band Handbook will show you what to do to unleash your greatest music ministry potential.
