Writing Guidelines

Guidelines for submitting articles or ideas for consideration for the EFCA blog.

EFCA BLOG

Purpose: The EFCA blog offers both proven practices and alternative perspectives for Christian faith and ministry from leaders in the Evangelical Free Church of America®.

Audience: EFCA pastors, staff, board members and ministry leaders.

Parameters: The blog emphasizes (1) ministry-in-action tied to EFCA churches, leaders and members; (2) thoughtful/challenging explorations of topics important to church life; and (3) theological exploration of pertinent topics. 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 run between 250 and 1,500 words. Indicate if photos are available, and include contacts for verification of article (address/phone/email of subject and subject’s pastor).

Book reviews: Digital manuscripts are provided from the publisher. 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.

Payment: Flat-fee rates apply, starting at $63 for a 250-word article—including limited subsidiary rights (free use within an EFCA context). Reprint payments vary. Payment is made upon acceptance—final edit of the article.
