Hi, my name is Paul Martinez. I'm beginning a new venture serving people as a "Minister For Hire" and I need your help to get it started!

People not connected to a church or pastor have a need for a minister, specifically in two significant areas of transition in their lives: Weddings and Funerals.

So I'm starting a business, De Novo Pastoral Services, to serve people needing a minister for weddings and funerals. De Novo is a Latin phrase roughly translated as, "new beginning" or "fresh start." The main website will be www.denovopastoralservices.com. I will also have a blog site with helpful resources, tools, and Biblical coaching at www.drpaulmartinez.com.

The start up costs include marketing and promotional items such as business cards, brochures, and website costs. It also includes business operational items such as a computer and printer.

As the grandson of a pastor, you might say this minister thing is in my blood. I have served as a minister in churches and other settings for nearly 25 years. In addition, I have a Doctor of Ministry degree. But all that aside, I’m basically someone who loves to help people with transitions, no matter if they are experiencing the difficult sorrow of a funeral or the exquisite joy of a wedding.
