Partner With The First Hour!
Through a strategic “Free Book Church Program” in Ten Key States. Our goal is to distribute 500,000 Free Copies of “The First Hour” for men. 50,000 books per state through several key churches in each state.
We have seen the Impact of the First Hour and have watched this 30-day journey transform thousands of men and their families. We have also witnessed thousands more accept Christ for the first time. We believe there is not a more effective powerful way to create a “Revival” throughout the nation and through the churches, then through this unique outreach program.
With the success of “The First Hour Free Book” distribution program to date (135,000 books) and with your Church partnership, together we can achieve the goal of saving 500,000 lost souls “New Believers” in 2019 alone.
In the past, we have seen the Churches experience a “significant growth” in their men’s ministry attendance in just a few short months after the “First Hour” program was shared with their Church. (see church event photos below)
The Church has also experienced men of their congregation become more motivated to get “Actively Involved in The Great Commission”, and share the Message of Jesus Christ with other lost men through “The First Hour” outreach program.
We are confident that “The First Hour” 30-Day Journey will motivate the men of your Church to do their part in “The Great Commission” and share this book with five men, two fellow believers and three unsaved. This will create an impact for generations to come.
Free Book Program!
With this simple “Proven Outreach Program” we are confident that the consistent current average of 20% of the men that receive their “Free Book” and experience the power and peace of giving God their first fruits each day, will keep their commitment to “purchase five books” to share with five other men. This will continue to “Duplicate” and create a movement to sweep the Nation with The Message of Jesus Christ (“Revival”) and continue to transform the lives of thousands of men and their families.
Prelude is committed to doing their part to help aggressively launch this Church Movement by giving your Church the opportunity to receive all the profits from the additional 5 book sales through your church or bookstores. Exclusively for this Church Partnership Program only, Prelude has committed to sell “The First Hour” for men to its Church Partners at a price of only $2.95 each for this 2019 initiative. The current wholesale price offered by our distributor Baker and Taylor to book retailers, including Barnes and Noble and other national Christian bookstore chains is $7.50. Barnes and Noble currently sells “The First Hour” for $14.95.
This will give your church or bookstore an unequaled advantage to sell “The First Hour” at a retail price of 40% to 50% less than the current national retailers, while allowing your church to make a “significant profit” to be utilized for other ministry and outreach efforts.
We ask that you partner with us today and provide a free copy of “The First Hour” to every man in your congregation! We are confident that you will see an impact from the men in your church like never before. This is a time tested proven “Outreach marketing strategy” that is reaching the lost men of this Nation!
Church / Bookstore Revenue
Example – (1000 Men in Congregation)
1000 books ($2.95 each) – Total Church commitment $2950.00
As consistently proven in the past several years, “an average of 20%” of these men will keep their commitment to purchase five books.
1000 Free books x 20% = 200 men
200 x 5 books = 1000 additional books purchased from Church Bookstore.
Your church may sell the book at any retail price in which you decide, up to $14.95 listed retail price. For our example purposes only, we are using “Prelude’s suggested discount of 40% off retail price” ($8.97 each).
1000 books x $8.97 = $8970.00 (revenue)
1000 x $2.95 = $2950.00 (cost)
$6020.00 (Profit to Church) per 1000 books
The above numbers are based on 1000 men at a retail price of $8.95 (40% discount off retail).
The revenues can be significantly higher based on the retail price in which your Church chooses to sell the book for and the size of your congregation.
Example: 10,000 books at retail of $14.95 less the book cost of $2.95 = $120,000.00 Net Profit
