CANADIAN LEADERSHIP RESOURCE REVIEW PROGRAM Are you a Canadian leader in ministry? Do you like being ‘in the know’ about new ministry resources? Do you like receiving free books to review? Would you be willing to provide us with two or three-sentence reviews of the books you receive from us? Join our Canadian Ministry Reviewer Network! *Note: This offer is restricted to Canadian residents only.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our leadership review program is simple. Each month we will have a number of titles available for review (quantities may be limited). These will include leadership titles, Christian living titles, Bible studies, women’s interest titles, men’s ministry and youth ministry titles. Sometimes we’ll have Bibles, movies and even music CD’s available for review. When new resources are posted, registered reviewers receive an email announcement about the book, author or other resources.
Feel free to sign up to receive a free copy of resources that interest you and ignore those that don’t. A month after you’ve requested a title, you’ll receive a second email asking you to bless us with two or three sentences telling us your thoughts on the resource you selected and received. From time to time we’ll also send you fun movie, music, contest and promotional offers as well, just for being one of our Canadian Ministry Reviewers!
Who qualifies for this review program? Basically, those in Christian leadership. For example: pastors, youth directors, ministry leaders and faculty at Christian educational institutions
All we ask is that you provide us with a review and, if possible, post a review on your blog, facebook, on Amazon.ca, books.google.ca, shelfari, Chapters.ca, or through twitter. That’s it.
