Mount Vernon, Wash. – Pastor raises funds via crowdfunding to publish his book, The Love Story, from a series of sermons about love, sex and relationships as inspired by the Bible and real-life relationships.
Mike Acker has turned to crowdfunding to raise funds for the publication of The Love Story, a book about romance, sex and relationships based on the author’s sermons as pastor at the Citipoint Church in Mount Vernon, Washington. Funds from the campaign will be used to hire an editor and for page layout, book art, press releases, and promotions. Additionally, ALL the profits and extra crowd funding will go to help the Church start a new chapter in the story of the Church.
Hosted by Pubslush, the 23-day campaign offers 15 reward levels starting from $5 to $900. A digital copy of the book is offered starting with a donation of $10. An autographed copy of the book is offered starting with a donation of $20. For a donation starting at $35, both digital and hard copies of the book are offered. Other rewards offered for donations starting at $35 include the following: packaged CD sermon series, copies of other books written by the author, and digital art for pastors who want to create their own series. Donors of $180 and above are offered special deals such as youth group-guest speaker, book launch, pastor partnership, youth camp, and conference deals. Estimated delivery date is on August 2014.
In writing this book, Pastor Acker draws from the Bible and experiences as a teacher, speaker, preacher, and, most importantly, as a husband, son and friend. The idea for the book was conceived after Acker’s encounter with a couple who have been married for over 40 years. Based on what he and other pastors have learned, taught and written over the years from and about the Bible (particularly the book of Songs of Solomon) and the realization that many people need help in this area, Acker decided to embark on this book project.
At this time, the author has written over a hundred pages of the rough draft for the 170-page book. Proceeds from the publishing will go to the church and its mission in the community and around the world.
Explaining what drives him to finish this project, Acker explains: “Ultimately, my desire is to communicate the Bible in such a way that captivates the audience with Jesus’ character and so each person can understand God’s voice and apply God’s guidance to their life.”
Before Acker became pastor of the Citipoint Church, he started a youth ministry in Camano and Stanwood in Washington State which transitioned into New View Church. He had the privilege to do workshops and conferences for other pastors and other events in locations including Honduras and Mexico. Acker’s latest book is [Holy], a devotional and journaling book.
