Writing For Ministry, with Drew Dyck (Podcast Ep 010)

Karl Vaters interviews Drew Dyck about how to get started writing for ministry, including what book publishers are looking for.

In this week’s episode of Can This Work In A Small Church? I interview Drew Dyck about the important subject of Writing for Ministry.

Drew is the author of several books, most recently, Your Future Self Will Thank You: Secrets to Self-Control from the Bible and Brain Science (A Guide for Sinners, Quitters, and Procrastinators).

Drew has spent a couple decades as a writer and editor for major church publishers, so he and I spend some time talking about

  • The differences between preaching and writing
  • How to get started writing for ministry
  • What book publishers are looking for (yes, even from small church pastors.)
