After serving as a pastor for 23 years, and spending two decades in the Christian nonprofit world, Nick now works as a Church Development Director. His job demands that he visits a new church each week. Over the past two years, he has visited over one hundred churches representing 20 different denominations. This view of the church, plus his extensive experience, has inspired Nick to embrace being a Church & Christian nonprofit consultant.
But none of hi work prepared Nick for his new journey into the world of book publisher. Hear Nick’s story and be inspired.

Want to reach a captive reading audience? In this video you will learn how to send Jesus to prison with your own inmate reading program.
Most inmates do not receive any mail, phone calls, or visits from those outside, so when a new book arrives—especially one that offers God’s hope and Truth—they will read: or get someone to read to them.
If you believe those incarcerated are not simply a captive audience, but an audience Jesus wants to capture with his love, why not partner with others and send your book to prison? All you need are:
A paperback book priced at $4.99 or less
Friends with Amazon Prime accounts
A willingness to send your friends a $5.50 Amazon gift card to cover the cost of the book plus tax
This whole AI ChatGPT discussion reminds me of Disco. If you suffered through the musical drought of the 70s and 80s brought on by the adaptation of the synthesizer then you know “rinse and repeat” content has a limited shelf life. At some point the steady back beat, the predictable horns, and other arrangements that seemed fresh at first ( thumbs up to Saturday Night Fever for catching the wave early), became tired and tinny. Reason being, there was no soul to the music. The tunes possessed no life or meaning.
AI ChatGPT content is the same. There’s a reason why a writer spends hours on a paragraph, days on a scene, years on a novel. They pour themselves into the work. This goes for nonfiction and fiction. Sure, AI ChatGPT could easily crank out a Hallmark romance. The formula is so predictable a chimp could be taught to write the plot.
But in the hands of real author, a Hallmark romance can become magical. Why? Because that author brings a unique perspective to the story that only she or he can tell.
The bigger issue with AI ChatGPT is that it crowds out other “authored” works. So from that perspective, AI ChatGPT is a concern. For every Disco hit of 70s and 80s another artist missed landing on the Top 40.
Maybe AI ChatGPT is better than my works. If so, that’s on me. But at least my writing, good or bad, is still mine.
