Self-publish a Christian Book in Australia

There are over 10,000 Protestant churches and over 1,000 Catholic churches in Australia. In total there are over 10 million people who identify as Christians. Christian ministers are also prolific content creators with sermons, videos, television and radio programs, audio recordings, podcasts, and self-published books.

Christian book publishing is a major genre generating strong sales in Australia.

1. Self-publishing a Christian book in Australia can be a powerful tool for outreach into the community.

Your ministry can be extended by self-publishing a Christian book. At Green Hill we are experts in giving your message a voice. Your church congregation will appreciate having your teaching clearly outlined in an easy to distribute book format.

Your book in their hands is a powerful evangelistic tool that can be confidently be gifted to family, friends, employees, and co-workers.

“Have a look at this book. The author is the speaker this Sunday at our church. Chapter 2 is something that might help in the situation you’re in now.”

Alternatively your book can be an effective tool summarising key teachings designed to help Christians – those teachings you’ve already delivered from the pulpit.

This type of book will appeal to your current church members and Christians who aren’t attending church.

If you aren’t in the ‘up-front’ ministry of your church  – you  are a Christian with a testimony (or teaching to give), your own book can be a powerful way to help those around you.

2. What if I don’t have time to write?

It’s easy. Green Hill will take 12 of your best sermons from audio recordings, transcribe them to text and have an experienced Christian editor make them ready to print. You only need to write a Dedication and Introduction of about 300 words.

3. How can I finance my self-published Christian book?

If you have a congregation of more than 40 people or a social media network of followers, funding your book production is easy. Australian crowdfunding technology will let you pre-sell your book among your supporters.

When the book is launched it will be a welcome feature of your church’s bookshop and website – a potential source of revenue and ministry impact for many years to come.

If your ministry involves travelling to other churches, regions, cities or countries – to minister in other churches or at seminars or conferences – your book will be eagerly purchased.
