Journey-of-Faith Writing Workshops Underwriting Options

For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”

I Timothy 5:18

Note from Carey Kinsolving: You may notice that no dollar figures appear in the underwriting suggestions on this page. I don't want a dollar figure that I have in mind to prevent any church from hosting a Journey-of-Faith Writing Workshop. I would rather let you tell me what will work for you to bring this workshop to your church. 

Option 1-- Sponsor Underwriting

This is my favorite way to underwrite a workshop. Sponsors (business owners, managers and professionals) can underwrite a workshop for a church and receive recognition at the workshop. 

If the sponsor fees are large enough to underwrite a citywide publicity campaign, sponsors will be mentioned in press releases, advertising on posters and recognition at the workshop. Press releases will be sent to local media to invite the public to attend for free, courtesy of the main sponsors. The sponsors who contribute the most will be mentioned in press releases. 

Option 2 -- Fee Underwriting

Individuals pay a fee. At least 20 people should register to hold a workshop. If fewer than 20 sign up, the workshop can be cancelled, postponed or supplemented by the church or sponsor underwriting. If more than 30 sign up, the fee can be reduced. The more people attend a workshop, the lower the cost per person.

Scholarships: It's important to include those who live on a tight budget. Full and half scholarships will be offered.

Option 3 -- Church Underwriting

A church underwrites the workshop. This includes travel and accommodations. 

Option 4 -- Free Will Offering Underwriting

Underwriter (church or sponsor) pays for transportation and accommodations. Free-will offering is taken. At least 20 people must register for a workshop.

Option 5 -- Combination Underwriting

Any combination of the four options above will work.
