The Jerry Jenkins Christian Writers Guild

As an editorial board member of the Jerry Jenkins Christian Writers Guild, I get to brainstorm ways the Guild can recruit and train Christians more effectively for the ministry of writing. The board numbers about sixteen and includes college professors, editors, publishers’ reps, and successful writers. Yesterday, we churned out a variety of good ideas we hope will empower Guild students to create significant articles, screenplays, dramas, and books.
The printed word holds potential for good and bad. It can shed light in a dark world, but it can also cast a shadow of doom and despair. Christian writers have the ability to look beyond the stark headlines and distressing reports of world events and see the hand of God. They know He holds the future and extends help for today. If they write clearly and compassionately, they will equip their readers for a faith that triumphs over trials and temptations. Indeed, an effective writing ministry can change the world, one heart at a time. That’s what the Jerry Jenkins Christian Writers Guild is all about.

"Then the LORD replied: 'Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it'" (Habakkuk 2:2).
