Kevin Miller's New Book!

$3,555 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 1 month

I am excited to announce that for the last 10 months, I've been hard at work on my second book, the story of Awaken Church's first 10 years and the lessons we've learned along the way! This is not a how-to book about church planting or even a how-not-to book. It's a story. A story of God’s faithfulness, provision, and gentle prodding. A story of doubt-filled prayers, answered prayers, and God’s faithfulness even when we were faithless. A story of pain, tragedy, and triumph, and I can't wait to share this story with you!

Just like a church, publishing a book also requires a team to get the message out as far as possible to as many people as possible. That's where you come in! I'm inviting you to join me in raising $10,000 to cover the costs of editing, design, layout, promotion, publishing, and printing.

Our goal is to launch the book alongside Awaken Church's 10th birthday celebration in the middle of September, so deadlines are quickly approaching.

I know so many people around the world have been impacted by the ministry and story of Awaken Church and I am so excited for this opportunity to share the story to an even wider audience. In addition, I would love to be able to get this book into the hands of future and prospective church planters so they can be better prepared and filled with faith as they launch out!

I am so grateful for this opportunity and look forward to hearing how this story of God's faithfulness encourages you.


GIVE A GIFT OF ANY AMOUNT and you'll receive a mention in the Thank You section of my book, acknowledging you as one of the people who helped me go public with the book! In addition, you'll also be the first to know about important updates, milestones we hit along the way, and exciting news as the publication date draws near!

GIVE A GIFT OF $50 OR MORE and not only will you receive what is mentioned above, but you'll also receive a signed copy of my book before it's available to the public!

No gift is too little or too large. Thanks for the support over the last decade, now let's tell the world about what God has done!

I’ve never written so much, worked so hard, and been so proud of a project as I have with this next book. I’ve given my life to build the Church and I believe this book will inspire and help so many to do the same!
I’m sending a pre-release version out today for some endorsements, so this is its first official flight into the world. The maiden voyage.
Thank you so much for donating to this project - I’m so grateful for your generosity! Keep praying and spreading the word!

Milestone #3! We are 30% of the way to our goal of $10K! THANK YOU!!!
As promised for each $1000 milestone, here’s the next chapter and summary:
Ch 3: “Smoke Signals”

Lesson: Be known for honor, not arson.

Many prospective church planters launch out arrogantly believing they have church figured out and don’t need the leaders who have gone before them. In this chapter, we explore the importance of finishing your current season well before you launch into your next.

Right in time for the 1-week mark, we hit the next milestone: $2000! THANK YOU! Keep spreading the word as we work toward our final goal of $10K!
I did a full day of writing yesterday and now have a solid second draft, which is another big milestone! I have editors looking through it and there will be lots of writing, rewriting, and tweaking over the coming weeks and months.
As promised for each $1,000 milestone, here's the title, lesson, and summary for Chapter 2:

Ch. 2: Operation Location Determination.
Lesson: If you will follow, He will lead.
Determining the location and timing of the specifics of your step of faith can be quite the process. In this chapter, we walk through some thoughts on the importance of listening to God’s voice, following His lead, and trusting Him along the way.

As we work our way toward our goal of $10,000, each time we hit the next $1,000 milestone, I'll be releasing a chapter title and summary! Since we've already cleared the first $1,000 milestone, here's Chapter 1!
THANKS again for giving and praying. If you haven't already, make sure to share this campaign with your friends or anyone you know who could benefit from this book!


Ch. 1: "Willing vs. Wired"
Lesson: This isn’t for everyone.
Church planting has become a trendy, “fun” thing to do, but is it something you should do? In this chapter, we explore the importance of not just doing something because you’re willing to, but focusing in on what God wired you to do.
