Card Ministry

Jean Spells
I am thinking about offering a Card Ministry to a couple of small churches that I already create cards and flyers for.  My idea is to send get well and thinking of you cards to the members that are sick or in the hospital. Not sure how I would charge for this -- by card or set a monthly fee.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Re: SU!: Card Ministry

I do cards for my church and I do it free. That is why it is called ministry.

RE: SU!: Card Ministry

Coleen Astalos

I don't think a card ministry has to be free.  For your own church, you might just charge for supplies and then get together with people in the church once a month to make up cards to be sent the next month.

 

But it sounds like you're looking to make this more of a business proposition for not just your own church, but a variety of churches in your area.

 

I think there are several ways you can do this...

 

1) Make the cards yourself - charge on a by card basis.   The cost would depend on the complexity of the cards - use the Cost Calculator on SUDSOL to get an idea of your cost on those supplies: http://www.sudsol.org/members/index.php?action=article&id=939&relid=106  Then add on an hourly rate for you making say 20 cards.  (My hourly rate is $20/hr) and then divide by the number of cards to get your price per card.  So if your supply amount is $1/card and you figure you can do 10 cards per hour - then $10 worth of supplies + $20 hourly rate = $30 for 10 cards or $3/card.

 

2) You provide the cards/designs and the church people make them - charge for your supplies and your time to "teach/supervise" the production of the cards.  Again, use the Cost calculator to come up with the supply cost/card and then add in $20/hr for the amount of time they want to schedule to make the cards.  So you could present it as $1/card (supply fee) plus $20 per hour of card making session (figure 15 minutes per card per person).   So if they did 2 hours - they could make 80 cards at a cost of $80 supplies plus $40 your time = $120 (which ends up being $1.50/card)

 

Hope that helps!

Coleen

I love making cards..........and sometimes I sell them, sometimes I have classes and workshops,  but I really enjoy making cards.....so I also thought to do something for my church.......My Sunday School Class has close to 50 ladies in it.  So I am going to bundle together 5 - 10 cards for each of them once a quarter and gift them.  Cleans out my stash without me "Self-Pressuring" myself to sell them or worse........stop making them!

I know what ministry is.  However, I plan to do this not just for the church I belong to but others as well.  I am not trying to get rich off of this, I just need to be able to cover at least the cost of my supplies.
