Online or in person?
You can do your ministry either way. We see the same quality of results with both. Sometimes people who need a personal touch or some intensive care start their ministry in person where they can feel a little more loved on by both of us. We'll get to spend some informal time together at lunch, and you see for yourself that we're just a normal married couple. We also roast our own coffee and would be happy to make you a homemade latte!Still, we do about 80% of the ministry online. If you want to meet online, we use Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, and Google Hangouts. If you have your own preference, just let us know, and we'll be happy to give it a try!
How do you schedule appointments?
Your appointment can be anywhere from ½ day to 4 days. For initial appointments, we recommend scheduling a minimum of 2 days because there is often a lot to talk about on the front end. We will work with you to schedule your ministry as your time and budget allow. We typically schedule appointments 30 to 60 days in advance.
Ministry days are typically from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m with an hour break for lunch. When Mark is ministering to a woman, it is our strict rule that Mark’s wife, Risa, or another Christian woman be present in our home to protect everyone’s reputation.
What does the ministry cost?
We try to be as affordable as possible, so we don't use fixed prices for sessions. Everything is done by donation. We have recommended donation guidelines (to help us pay our bills) and ask you to give us a valid reason if you can't meet them. If you have to save for your appointment, please do, as no one can work for free and we're no exception. (Plus, the ministry is worth far more than we ask in support!)When possible, we provide free or under-supported ministry for people who are on disability income, homeless, welfare, etc. We can offer free-of-charge and under-supported appointments only as our own finances allow, so your wait time might be a little longer. Our recommended donation guidelines are:
- Full day ministry: $175 to $300 per day
- One-half day appointments: $87.50 to $150 per 1/2 day
You can make a one-time donation or set up a reccurring monthly donation at the bottom of our home page or mail a check to: 1700 Wysteria Ln, Conway, AR 72034. We are a 501(C)(3) non profit, so all donations are tax-deductible.
Don't miss this! We are flexible with our donation guidelines because we want to be affordable to everyone. But this also means we live on a variable income, and we need to know what is coming in each month. (Just about anyone does, right?) So we ask you to send us our Ministry Support Planning Form to tell us how you plan to support your ministry. This way we can plan to make ends meet each month. Click the link above or find it on our downloads page. All you have to do to get on the schedule is send us the form. You can send it:
- By email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- By fax to: 866-365-7836
- By snail-mail to 1700 Wysteria LN, Conway AR 72034
