We believe great brand experiences start with great stories.

Why Reliant Creative?

We exist to tell your ministry’s story because those stories are powerful and they can inspire action and mobilize the Church for your cause. Across the world, God is working through ordinary people in extraordinary ways: believers are feeding the poor, saving children from sex slavery, healing the sick, helping widows and orphans, and extending compassion to the lost and lonely. The stories behind these efforts are often lost. If we can tell those stories we can increase your impact, inspire action, and mobilize the Church for your cause.

You’re a ministry executive. You don’t have time and you may not have the resources to tell your stories. You were called to your cause, not marketing. That’s our calling and we can help! Reliant Creative is supported by generous donors who believe stories are powerful. They believe that stories can mobilize the Church and they’re investing in our organization so we can help tell your stories. 

We believe God is at work in incredible ways globally. We’ve seen His work first hand. The problem is that it’s difficult to tell those stories because it’s time consuming and expensive. But, if we can tell those stories to the Church, we believe she’ll mobilize and rally behind what God is already doing through prayer and financial investment.  Your stories just need to be told well and often. Let’s tell powerful stories of how God’s working through your ministry and mobilize the Church!

Running a ministry is hard and you don’t have the time or financial resources for marketing and telling your stories. You weren’t called to be a marketer after all, you were called to your cause. It can be overwhelming to care for those who you’ve been called to serve while thinking about how you’re going to get donors and supporters invested in your ministry.

Who has the time and resources to create content, to tell their stories to donors, to build a brand?

We do, and we’ve got a plan!

While we operate as a full service agency, we’re also a 501(c)3 ministry called to use our gifts to help you tell your ministry story cost effectively. And we’ve got our own donors to help out!

We understand and relate to the struggles you are challenged with every day because we are working through many of the same struggles. If you’ll let us use our gifts and experience in marketing to tell your story, you can spend your time focusing where you’ve been called.

We’ll take the time to get to know you and the work you do. If we partner with you, your work is our work. We’ll do no cookie-cutting. Every branding effort, every website, every campaign is created custom to fit your ministries needs. 

We are a Christian ministry committed to using our gifts, talents, and abilities for Kingdom impact through creative action.

If you are a church or church plant looking for creative solutions to your ministry’s creative needs, we’re here to help you. We understand that every church is unique with varying needs and diverse congregations. How you relate and visually speak to a large suburban church congregation will be different from how you speak to an urban congregation downtown. We’ll listen to your individual needs before we start implementation and execution so that what we deliver is custom fit to your church or plant. 

We can help you build a brand, or tackle your weekly creative and church event campaigns. By working with Reliant Creative you are not only saving on design staff costs, but your investment goes directly towards growing other gospel-centered ministries. 

Here's how we can help your ministry.

We are storytellers and we believe great brand experiences start with great stories. Every interaction a donor has with your brand should be viewed as an opportunity to tell your unique ministry stories. If you tell your stories you can inspire action and mobilize donors for your cause. We can help you mobilize the Church to prayerful and financial investment in what God is already doing through your organization. Here are the areas where we specialize in telling ministry stories.
