From the Editor ... by Marcia Greenwood

As we are entering into a new year, we are now one year closer to the return of King Jesus!

This new year, make it your purpose to draw closer to God and to become more intimate with Him.

Our heavenly Father wants us to be blessed in every area of our lives. Jesus lived a perfect life – He overcame the devil, He got the victory, so we could live victorious lives.

In today’s world, it is becoming harder and harder to believe and trust other people due to good faith breaking down as never before. But, there is ONLY ONE God Almighty, whom we can trust and in Whom we can place our faith in and believe EVERY WORD He says to us.

This year, as never before, we need to learn to trust God so much that we really do believe that we receive what we ask in prayer.

The word BELIEVE means to place our faith in someone or something and when it applies to Jesus means to: give Him enough credit; to entrust your life to Him as reflected through your consistent profession, spoken with conviction and assurance.

Father God believed that when He spoke what He said would happen!

We must learn to make faith our daily way of life; believing and moving from faith to faith to faith. If we, as Christians, believe what God has said, step out and act on it, believing that whatever we prayed for we will receive, then we will see so many more salvations, healings and financial turn-a rounds in the future.

Eph. 3:20 - God says that He wants to give us abundantly ABOVE what we can even think or imagine. We need to stretch our faith – this takes believing!

I John 5:14-15 says “AND this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us: and if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petition that we desired of him.”

This is God’s promise to us – if we ONLY BELIEVE!

Does Your Ministry Have A Simple, Efficient, Easy To Maintain Ministry Website?
by Tim Greenwood
Most ministers understand the need for them to have a website. However, due to failed attempts, perceived costs, and perceived difficulty, many ministers have opted to do without a ministry website.

Today it is more important for a ministry to have a website than it used to be to have business cards. You are in the people business and people need, at the very least, to be able to find out where you are, how to contact you, where and when to come to your services and how to get donations into your hands.

The Tim Greenwood Ministries website began in earnest in 1999 with one page: the testimony of my healing from terminal heart disease. Since then Marcia and I have added articles and tools one by one to the site. As I write this today the site has grown to more than 400 on-site pages plus there are several hundred more off-site pages that can be viewed through the TGM website.

During that year, I thought that our hit counter was broken since it seemed to be stuck in the single digits. Then as the site grew, the number of hits seemed to grow exponentially with the counter reaching one million overall hits in 2000. By 2002 the number of hits increased by an additional one million hits for that year. And by 2003 we were receiving well over three million hits a year. It took us until 2011 to increase that number to four million hits a year. And as of March 1, 2013, we have received nearly thirty-three million hits, (32,908,524), since we started the site. In addition, back when giving internet awards was popular the TGM website received dozens of different Christian web site awards.

The site is pleasing to the eye, has more than 100 anointed teachings in the form of articles, great Christian tools and content and it is functionally simple to navigate. And we have thus far been able to accomplish all this on a budget of less than $300.00 a year (that’s around $25.00 a month), which includes hosted web space and one or more domain names. This combination of factors has caused a lot of inquiries for advice by other ministries desiring to build their own website.

I would have loved to tell them that I built the TGM website but that would not give honor to whom honor is due. Actually, the Holy Spirit designed it, right down to its colors and told me how to do it all - I just did the work. I’m not just being humble, I mean this quite literally. When I started the web page, I neither had the skill nor the knowledge to build it. I’m a Spirit filled, Spirit led, born-again, baptized Christian minister. I just did and continue to do what I am led by the Holy Spirit to do. The Spirit would show me what it should look like and then would lead me to resources to find out how to make it happen, step-by-step, one piece at a time. And as I learned what did and didn’t work, I increased this skill set.

I have seen it time and time again. A ministry puts a website up on the web only to have it, for whatever reason, fall into disuse. Whatever the stated reason, the real reason is most often that the website was difficult to maintain, inefficient and too complicated for anyone other than a computer wiz to work on.

That is why I have written a new book titled, “How To Build A Simple, Efficient, Easy To Maintain Ministry Website On a Start-up Ministry Budget”.

If you are a Pastor, I know what you are thinking: “I just don’t have time to build and maintain a website.” But I say: “You cannot teach what you don’t know.” And by knowing this information:
1. You can teach others to build and maintain your website
2. No one can tell you what can’t be done on your website, and
3. You will end up with a long-term, simple, easy to maintain website that you can grow along with your ministry.

I believe that God has given me the gift of making what seems complicated, simple, easy to understand and easy to accomplish; and do it in a way that will fit almost any ministry budget.

“How to Build a Simple, Efficient, Easy to Maintain Ministry Website – On a Startup Ministry Budget” is now available for purchase for only 10 dollars plus shipping per copy, I don’t see how any ministry could go wrong buying this book.

In “How to Build a Simple, Efficient, Easy to Maintain Ministry Website – On a Startup Ministry Budget” I step through each attribute and principal that has made the TGM website the success that it has been.

In it I also provide a step-by-step approach and guide for duplicating the all of the basic components of the website, and do it in a manner in which you will be able to insert your own text, images, colors and etc. At the end of the book I even provide many examples and explanations of html code, with which you could begin creating your own custom pages for your website, once you get it built.
