Business Name

Virtual Ministries Inc.

What do you do?

Virtual Ministries, based out of West Point GA with an additional office in Birmingham Alabama. Our company is a Christian 501c3 whose mission is:
-Helping churches add online Teen and Adult ministries to their real world ministries
-To provide free education to adults and kids about how to have safe FUN online and not miss out
-Building online experiences for all that are Christ centered (Facebook, gaming etc.)

Our business model is based solely on donations. We believe that donations will be received from churches (as an entity), church members (as an offering) or individuals (as a periodical contributor). These donations will be used to fund the development of new Christian missions, operating primarily online. Examples include our Facebook page "David's Shields", our plans to build an online education series on protecting children on the net, a Facebook app we are developing now called "Petdar" and other examples. In the future, and as we have financial contributors join us, they will direct the company's priorities for spending on missions, primarily operation online.

This brochure is the company's 1st brochure. We are in start up mode. It is very important we communicate the message effectively. We believe our target audience is the mother and father in the church pew, church staff and church pastor. We will also use this brochure on our website which is in design and will be launched 1Q2013. We believe the best approach is to create a brochure which is informative and can be used for both general informative purposes and for guiding readers to next steps to join with us.

Further, we believe there is a critical issue facing our youth and Christianity and we would sum it up as:

"The Pew Research center reports that the average youth is spending 4.5 hours per day online and it is probably not at your church website. Online porn, gambling, sexting and other influences continue to bombard our kids. It is time we Christians worked aggressively together to learn how to protect our kids and create online ministries".

Our brochure needs to communicate this in a way that is direct about the problem, yet promotes Virtual Ministries as a postive force that connects Christians to work together to provide alternatives. A deck is attached that provides contextual information - but be advised the deck is being used as a script for our video. We will need to include more info about VM in the brochure then what is contained in the video.

Our budget is a concern as we are in start up and this brochure will be used to help us recruit and create a formal company board whose job will be to raise funds. We would appreciate your estimate on cost/quote up front.
