To support your writing, we ask for:

  1. Examples
  2. Anecdotes

  5. Questions and/or challenges to carry your message forward

Please review past posts to become familiar with the Blog’s editorial needs and style.

Freelance article submissions: Articles to be considered for the EFCA Blog should be between 500 and 2,500 words. Indicate if photos are available and include contacts for verification of article (address/phone/email of subject and subject’s pastor).

Book reviews: Each reviewer writes “on spec,” and we’ll pay you if we choose to publish your review. To learn more, contact the book-review coordinator.
