Jump Start Program

Availability

The jump start program is available in Australia and New Zealand.

What is involved?

Do I need to memorise a canvass?

Yes. A short paragraph canvass is written for each book that you sell. Often the Holy Spirit directs our words and gives us the right words to say, but beginners must memorise a short canvass before being taken to the door by their LM Coordinator.

If I have any questions or concerns, who can I ask for help?

The Conference Literature Ministry Coordinator is your first point of contact and is there to help and support you. There is always training and mentoring being offered to help improve your skills at national LE Summits and Outreaches. The LE Resource hub is also available, and contains training resources.

Business details

How many hours each week do I have to work as a Jump Start Literature Evangelist?

We recommend that each Jump Start Literature Evangelist commit to about 10 hours per week. Some work more than this, and some work less. Each Jump Start Literature Evangelist works with and for Jesus as part of God’s movement.

JumpStart is not designed for you to make a living from. If you would like to make Literature Evangelism your career, then join the Regular LE Ministry.

What are the ‘start-up costs’ to join the Jump Start Literature Evangelist team?

Purchasing the basic kit, a few sets of books, canvassing bag, change wallet, stationery and trainee ID lanyard costs approximately $250 (excluding postage and handling). Annual Public Liability Insurance is required.

How often and why do I need to report my Literature Evangelism activities?

Each Friday, please submit a brief online report of sales, hours worked, books sold, etcetera. These statistics assist the South Pacific Division and the world church to appreciate the valuable ministry work being performed by Literature Evangelists.

How do I get paid?

Books can be purchased directly from Signs Publishing Company's online store (Hope Shop) at wholesale prices, and then sold by you for the recommended retail price. You get to keep all the money that you earn while selling books.

What happens if a customer at the door wants to pay by credit card?

A business PayPal account and device is an important tool to use in your ministry and can be set up at little cost.

What kinds of books do I sell?

A selection of health books and spiritual books. We carry excellent resources to help people with their physical, mental and spiritual health.
