Providing every woman on earth the training and resources needed to start and sustain
her own ministry!
Whether you just began your Sabbatical or you've been gone for years—we are excited and delighted you are here! As RMI began to expand and branch off from where we started decades ago—ONE thing remains clear—He led each of us to RMI and its life-changing truths at the appointed time in our lives and what we learned should not now be wasted or hidden.
"No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your Heavenly Father." Matthew 5:15-16 NLT
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9 KJV
"Complete your work outside, and get your fields ready for next season; after that’s done, build your house." Proverbs 24:27 VOICE
“But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. And he will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers.” Psalm. 1:2
Dozens of amazing and anointed Ministers, like you, have graced RMI for a season, and the larger we grow, the more women come through. Whether a minister's time with us is long or short—we want to continue to encourage you that you obtained royalty as His bride "for such a time as this" to "save many people alive."
Never before has it been so easy to Minister right from your home, on your laptop and even your phone! Social Media Platforms are everywhere to discover and use—not just to be social and gain "friends" who "follow you" but we believe the darker the world the greater each tiny bit of light will illuminate the darkness and act as a beacon, a lighthouse, guiding women to safety—the safety of His loving arms!
There are many religions as we all know—so it's foolish to try to compete with any "religion." What we all want and need is to establish a RELATIONSHIP with the One who can be everything to them. If that's what you've done in your life, you dear friend, can and should share this with other women. Then, rather than encouraging women to follow you, encourage them to be HF "His follower" as you are and to share this GOOD NEWS with their family, friends, then more will begin to reflect His radiant face in their faces!
“‘Come with Me. I’ll make a new kind of fisherman out of you. I’ll show you how to catch men and women instead of perch and bass.’ They didn’t ask questions, but simply dropped their nets and followed.” Matthew 4:19-20 MSG
🤩 WEDNESDAYS Are "Ministry-Focused"
—Investing in the Future 🤩
Now that we have a greater understanding that RMI is clearly not the final destination in your call to minister, our Ministry Team has set aside each Wednesday to encourage our MTM "Ministry Team Members" to focus and develop their own ministries. As Independent Contractors, each minister is free to work as much or as little as they'd like and take on or pass on tasks they are offered.
For YEARS Erin has shared how she volunteered in dozens of churches and ministries each preparing her for what she'd need for RMI. She also said, "I didn’t foolishly disconnect prematurely from serving at the churches I was attending once I had my own ministry but I remained devoted to helping other ministries and churches succeed—resulting in my ministry RMI succeeding. Now that I am no longer attending any church but encourage women to become His church, I want to continue helping other ministries and missions succeed and encourage each minister to begin and enhance their own ministries by continuing to help other ministries to grow."
Here are some of the ideas for you to do on your Ministering Wednesdays:
1- Spiritual Growth Increase:
Start your day by journaling on one of our Abundant life courses each week. By doing one a week, you will travel through all courses in less time— having the opportunity to grow spiritually and thereby being able to minister to other women with even more hope and truth and love to share.
2- Organize your Weekly Fellowship Meeting on Zoom. SSS "Simply Seek God" and allow Him to lead you to which of the many courses available at HopeAtlast.com SITEMAP. Get the training you need to lead a Zoom Fellowship by simply joining one of our many Zoom Fellowship Meetings that we are continually adding.
3- Start writing your Restoration Journey Novel. Go to your email archive and search for your journals and praise reports. You can start compiling them into an eBook and submit it for possible publication with NRP!
4- Invest time in your Social Media Ministry. Now that most of you have discovered how the Lord has blessed you with such creativity with videos, it is time to create a sequence of posts to schedule for your own FB page Ministry.
There are numerous benefits to becoming an Alumni Affiliate with only 2 Requirements that are designed to protect YOU from falling into a well-used scheme of the enemy.
“It’s my duty to make sure that Satan does not win even a small victory over us, for we don’t want to be naïve and then fall prey to his schemes.” 2 Corinthians 2:11 The Voice
“Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8
#1 Faithfully Tithe to wherever you are being spiritual fed (your storehouse) and/or give an offering on financial gain from RMI, to RMI, if you agree to accepting our resources to share in your own ministry.
#2 Never speaking against anyone NOT ever!
“Do not touch My anointed ones, and do not harm My prophets.” Psalm 105:15
"For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you’re my true followers.” John 13:35
“Refuse to be a critic full of bias toward others, and judgment will not be passed on you. For you’ll be judged by the same standard that you’ve used to judge others. The measurement you use on them will be used on you. Why would you focus on the flaw in someone else’s life and yet fail to notice the glaring flaws of your own?" Matthew 7:1-3
This means speaking against any ministry, anyone or anything. We cannot claim to be ministers or His bride when we act like everyone else in the world.
Alumni Affiliate BENEFITS
#1 Officially using any and all of our Resources for your own ministry.
#2 Receive our monthly Alumni Affiliate Newsletter— that includes the password to our Resources.
#3 With the potential of becoming an Alumni Affiliate Subcontractor.
Alumni Affiliate Subcontractors
Our MTMs are not employed by RMI, but each is an Independent Contractor, and as stated above, is encouraged to devote Wednesdays to their own ministry.
As a registered Alumni Affiliate you also have the potential to work as an Alumni Affiliate Subcontractor.
A Subcontractor is defined as: an individual people that you hire to help you complete a project.
The difference between working on our Ministry Team as an Independent Contractor versus a Subcontractor:
- You would be offered a task with a deadline but would not be required nor privy to working on our teams.
- In addition, many of our Ministry Team requirements are waved, such as Greeting each other daily after reading our Good News, submitting praise reports and journalling ongoing lessons.
- Also, you would not be filling out a monthly check-in form, but instead this would change to quarterly.
** There are many other things required as one of our Ministry Team Members that are time consuming, when your time is limited, which do not require our usual umbrella of protection as leaders of our MTMs.
“Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you.” Hebrews 13:17
What work do we offer for Subcontractors?
Narrow Road Publishing: Formatting books in Microsoft Word.
Translation Team: Translating both books and courses.
Proofreading Team: Proofreading both books and courses.
Narration Team: Narrating both books and courses.
PLEASE NOTE: At this time, we are only accepting Subcontractors IF you previously worked on and you were trained. We apologize that we cannot provide additional training at this time. If we do begin to offer training to subcontractors, we will notify our registered Alumni Affiliates.
So if you were trained and worked:
- Formatting books in Microsoft Word.
- Translating both books and courses.
- Proofreading both books and courses.
- Narrating both books and courses.
Then consider registering as one of our Alumni Affiliates today!
YOUR OWN MINISTRY
Starting your own ministry does not need a degree, or funding, or making a show of it on Social Media. What it needs is HIS heart being manifested in the actions you take as you follow His lead. Some ministries will be short-lived, while others may be passed onto someone else He calls to carry the mantle when He calls you to something else. Regardless, each opportunity to minister will not only bless others, even if it's just ONE other woman, but it will be such a tremendous blessing to you.
Thanks to the RMI books, my friend has been transformed, sometimes she does not even recognize herself and her husband has taken down the wall of hatred. At the end of our visit, I remarked that it would be good to read either lesson to stay encouraged and continue to grow in the Lord and without realizing what came out of my mouth I said, "Do you want us to do the Wise Woman chapters for Zoom once? I know another woman and she has a restored marriage. Her response was immediate: "Yes I do."
When I got home I contacted the other woman and her response was the same. I prepared the links on the first chapter and sent them. Dear Brides, 3 days before the meeting was held, the thought of doing Ministry meetings in my country had never crossed my mind. I thank the Lord for this opportunity to help other women using RMI's resources and the teachings He gives me! ~ Poppy in Costa Rica
Every day I am more impressed by what example and love can accomplish. This beautiful ministry has given me the tools to share the love of my Beloved Heavenly Husband and I have witnessed many women who are reaching out in search of that love that changes everything. Fellowship meetings have been growing before our eyes, in all languages. More and more women are learning about His love and starting to have that relationship that literally saved my life. ~ Isabella in Costa Rica
Let me give you just one example of being Ministry-Minded using one of my sons who has started or been involved in several ministries. Having a family plus a full time job that meant a lot of traveling, he nevertheless proved where his heart has always been—open and looking for every opportunity to minister to others.
Mowing the Neighbors Lawn. My son was living in a neighborhood where there were many young families with small children. His daughter loved playing with the next door neighbors on both side, both who didn't have a dad living with them. My DIL heard that the dad on the one side was in the military and was deployed, so with two small children on her own, this military wife often struggled to keep her lawn mowed. So at his wife suggestion, my son just continued mowing straight across both lawns!
Then a few weeks later, they heard that on the other side, the dad had left for another woman, so my son began to mow across all 3 lawns! When his mower couldn't keep up, they agreed to use their offering to purchase another mower in order to care for the (military and infidelity) widows and orphans.
Mowing is normally a great ministry for men, so share this story with your brothers, nephews, uncles, etc. As far as you're concerned, both of these mothers could easily be ministered to by offering to sit with her children, bringing a meal once a week (by just doubling yours) giving her a break from cooking, or offering to come clean once a week. Where is your passion, what do you love to do; what is He anointed you with? ASK HIM.
Block Party Grill Nights. Again in this neighborhood, rather than grilling in their backyard, my son and his wife decided to grill in the front yard to look for opportunities to "love on" their neighbors. ("love on" is just one of the many endearing sayings learned from living in the South.) Grilling in their front yard brought the neighborhood children running when they smelled the hamburgers and hot dogs. When they came close, my son, DIL and granddaughter offered them something, saying go ask your mom (or parents). Soon the other neighbors began grilling in their front yards too! And that resulted in closing the street while they all got together to fellowship.
Of course conversations sprang up and interestingly, they knew this family were Christians, asking them "Where do you go to church?" Because THIS is true evangelism. So be ready with an answer if you continue as His church. ASK HIM. You could find your ministry by stating something like "I don't currently attend church, but I have wanted to have a women's Bible study, would you be interested in coming if I started one?" Or offer to join them to somewhere local where you believe they would fit in and feel loved. To get inspired, read the Salvation Story Gentlemen's Club Dancer
Neighborhood Dad. My son often played outside with his daughter, often while my DIL was also outside (he's always been a big kid and adores children, playing with his younger siblings and now his daughter). So he began just naturally fathering the neighborhood kids. PLEASE NOTE: In today's world, you have to be very careful to be above reproach, which is where my DIL was such a blessing. Together they made sure she, the mother, was always there in clear view much like what kept Billy Graham's ministry free from scandal (scandal that was and still is rampant and destroys so many ministries). Billy Graham and his leaders all agreed from the onset that they would never be alone with any woman that was not their own wife! Billy stuck to this even when on several occasions a woman was sent to pick him up at the airport but he refused to get in the car with them—instead he took a cab!
Thankfully it's a bit safer being a woman, nevertheless, ASK HIM to be sure that you are also above reproach because we should never be ignorant of the enemy's schemes. Where is your passion, what do you love to do; what is He anointed you with? ASK HIM. What do you enjoy domestically? Or maybe it's just helping children to be carpooled, walked the neighborhood children home from the bus stop getting safely inside their home? Simply ASK HIM.
Homeless Breakfasts. The Lord had led me to purchased a portable gas grill for the 3 months I was renting a beach house in Florida. It's seemed odd at the time investing in this, but I didn't lean to my own understanding. Knowing I couldn't take it with me, I ASKED HIM what to do with it. He told me to offer it to my son. Again, I didn't lean to my own understanding because they couldn't use it where they lived. So when I offered it my son said, "Oh, would you mind if I gave it to the ministry I've been helping with on Saturdays? We give men living on the streets food, but we had talked about offering a hot meal, letting the aroma draw them over when we share the GOOD NEWS with them." Well of course I was thrilled.
Years later I heard the grill still is in use and they've expanded the work they're doing. Where is your passion, what do you love to do; what is He anointed you with; what do you have that He wants to use? ASK HIM.
MORE Ministry IDEAS to Ponder
Weekly or Monthly Fellowships Meeting on Zoom. We have found great success in using the Zoom platform to have Fellowships Meetings and we trust these could easily work for you too! We'd encourage you to start being trained by joining one of our many Fellowships Meetings and learn the ins and outs—then begin your own! It starts with just ONE other woman and trust "the Lord of the harvest" to send out you and your ePartner "into His harvest” to reap a "thirty or sixty" or maybe even a "hundredfold”! Matthew 13:23
Weekly or Daily Online Lessons Videos. Each of our courses can easily become courses that you offer to the women who you minister to. You can determine to use the provided journal link for them to use (they can easily forward to you)—or you can provide them with your own form. We use wufoo that offers a free account that would be more than suitable to get started.
- If you would be interested in an ITV to know how our wufoo team builds forms, please visit our ITV page after registering as an Alumni Affiliate so we can provide you with the current password. Coming soon!
Start a Book Club. In addition to our courses, we want to provide you with any or all of our eBooks to potentially start a Book Club—ideal if you feel called to fish for women who are not church goers.
- If you would be interested in having our written permission to provide FREE eBooks to women you minister to and/or sell our eBooks you faithfully tithe from the profits on, be sure you register as an RMI Fellowship Affiliate so we can provide you with the current password to that page.
Local Face-to-Face Meetings. If the Lord leads you to start a local ministry, we would love to offer you a Discounted Cost for our paperback books. As a RMI Fellowship Affiliate RMI would love to invest some of our books into your group and also pay the shipping. However, if you’re asking your group to pay for their own books, which is often wise to encourage them to invest themselves, then we simply ask that you pay shipping.
- This and other offers are subject to change as He leads, so please be sure register to receive the RMI Fellowship Affiliate monthly newsletter with the current password.
Restoration Journey Novel. Another way to enhance and expand your ministry is by using your journals and praise reports (and restored marriage testimony if you have one)—compiling them into an eBook and submit it for possible publication with NRP so it can be added to our Encouraging Bookstore, Amazons around the world, Polobooks in South America or Print on Demand in South Africa.
- If you poured your heart into your journals, your praise reports, beginning with you Marriage Evaluation Questionnaire, then you have everything you begin building your own Restoration Journey Novel, like Kelly Todd "Too Little, Too Late."
- We will gladly design a cover for you should your RJN be selected by NRP.
- You will also be able to purchase your RJN book at our cost (plus shipping) to be able to give them away or sell them yourself.
- We offer an easy step-by-step to show you how to compile a novel. So be sure you sign up to be one of our RMI Fellowship Affiliates.
