Do you intend to give James an honorarium or take a love offering?
Will James be able to sell resources at this event?
Will you provide qualified on-site staff or volunteers to man the resource table?
Are you willing to pay for a personal traveling assistant to accompany James?
(This is very important as James has had two back surgeries and should not lift suitcases, etc. The assistant would require an airfare and a separate hotel room.)
Will you reimburse James for Business Class flight expenses, as well as an Economy ticket for his assistant as well as baggage fees?
(James cannot fly on small planes due to sciatic nerve damage. He must fly Business Class - though Southwest Airlines is acceptable as long as James boards first. James must also have an assistant accompany him or he will not be able to come. The assistant’s economy flight must be paid for by the Hosts. The host is to pay for or reimburse baggage fees as well. If James flies Business Class he gets 2 free bags and Southwest Airlines also gives 2 free bags. Hosts must reimburse or pay for the assistant's baggage(s). Normally this will be one bag, but on rare occasion might be two.)
Will you cover hotel and meal expenses for James as well as his assistant?
(Two hotel rooms are required and must be paid for by the host (James never shares a room) and does not stay in homes due to the extreme sciatic nerve pain James has to manage due to failed medical procedures. Due to his health requirements, James cannot eat continental breakfasts. If that is all the hotel supplies, then we ask you to take James to a good restaurant for breakfast. James typically does not eat late at night after meetings.)
James cannot drive a car on ministry trips due to damaged nerves in his left foot. If a rental car is required, it must be placed in the name of his assistant.
While James does not specify a particular financial amount to accept ministry invitations, the honorariums and resource sales generated by these events are the two primary revenue streams covering all God Encounters Ministries expenses and staff salaries. Therefore your generosity in honorariums and providing the sale of resource materials to those in attendance is greatly appreciated.
If James turns down a speaking engagement due to scheduling conflicts, he may refer a qualified team member in his place who has ministry experience appropriate to the event you are hosting. This is simply a recommendation that has often benefited hosting ministries, but is in no way an obligation for the host to accept.
If James accepts your invitation, it is a significant commitment of trust being made by both parties. The desire of God Encounters Ministries is to build up the Body of Christ. James recognizes that each ministry handles finances differently and he will honor the protocols that are in place for the host organization.
Do you have additional Comments or Information for James to consider regarding this invitation?
