For years, Jess Olivito has informally ministered to women in an effort to advance God’s Kingdom. She felt a call to turn this into a more formal ministry, but wasn't sure what it would look like. Last fall, she received a vision to coordinate a Women’s Worship Experience that would unify women across denominational lines and teach them more about the Holy Spirit. On November 23, almost 250 women participated in an interactive worship night. “It was a powerful night of anointed musicians and speakers and I also had the opportunity to publically give my testimony and story of redemption. I know God used this event to change women’s lives forever. Almost a third of the crowd came up for personal prayer at the end of the night and several had major breakthroughs. The biggest reward for me was watching God use my past pain to help set others free! As a result, I know the Lord wants me to orchestrate more of these events”, says Olivito.
As a result, Jess knew it was time to get serious about building a solid business plan for her non-profit ministry. She enrolled in Michelle Smith’s Magnify Your Marketing program to get quality results she could implement for 2015.
“Michelle’s Magnify program allowed me to define my true purpose. I enrolled in the 3 session group program with several other motivated entrepreneurs. In the first session, I brainstormed my best ideas, asked questions of my classmates, and developed a solid mission and vision. By session 2, my dreams were being transformed into a tangible, realistic, and doable action plan intended to quickly advance the ministry. And by session 3, I had built a thorough, foundational marketing plan for 2015 that I then presented to my classmates for feedback and additional input. Magnify helped me define: who I should serve, what my true goals were, and how I was going to accomplish everything… step by step!
“Literally days after completing the program, I was talking to a pastor about my future goals and pulled out my 2-page marketing plan to be more specific. The pastor was so impressed by the serious time and energy I had devoted into building such a solid, executable plan…that she immediately started sharing ways her church could partner with us!”
“Without having FIRST worked through all my ideas with Michelle (and then documenting them concisely into a plan of goals and actions), I would NOT have had the confidence or credibility to take my ideas to the next level for The Sozo Group. I look forward to Michelle’s continued coaching in 2015 as I get support carrying out my plan in her Maximize Your Marketing program!”
