YOUR BOOK MAY QUALIFY TO BE USED FOR A SERMON SERIES KIT (SSK) WHICH COULD TAKE YOUR MESSAGE ALL OVER THE WORLD AND INCREASES YOUR BOOK SALES.
Did you know that the majority of pastors in the US are bivocational?Between demands of their other jobs, their family and other responsibilities they often don’t have time to prepare a sermon series and video support materials. The Sermon Series Kit (SSK), also referred to as “Sermon Series in a Box” provides quality materials at a very reasonable price.
Using 4-6 of your transcribed sermons based on the topic of your book we create a Sermon Series Kit (SSK). The kit includes 4 – 6 sermons, 4 – 6 video illustrations, 1 countdown video, 1 social media promo video, 1 PowerPoint template for each week of the series, 1 planning guide, and social media images for churches to use to promote the series.
