RMM Resources



Our world has changed in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Keeping each other safe has necessitated distancing and has hampered our ability to gather, commune, share information, and communicate in ways we only can in person. It may have become more difficult for you to bless others with information about your ministry, organization, or product. If this is the case for you, we have a solution!

During a year, Resource Ministry Magazine (RMM) reaches over 50,000 active Adventist homes with a potential readership of about 185,000 individuals and about 6,000 churches, companies, and home fellowships; 700+ NAD, Union, and Conference administrative personnel, along with all Adventist PK-12 schools and higher education, hospitals, libraries, media centers, Adventist businesses, and over 150 various church organizations.--all at the cost of fewer than 1.3 cents per reader

Generate leads and gain traffic on your website with an eye-catching spread that will garner attention from readers interested in your offer. Your message can be seen for just pennies per prospect, making a partnership with us a low-cost, high-quality choice. At low prices, your investment includes all printing and mailing expenses.

Pros and Cons

 Pros: You control mail dates, all advertising in your piece, and can target specific groups/areas easily.

Cons: Significant investment, and requires professional outsourcing.
 Pros: Face-to-face contact and specific to an area or organization.

Cons: Highest cost per contact and close contact with large groups.
 Pros: High saturation of specific areas and frequent mail dates available.

Cons: Approval process may be complex, there are 8 unions in the USA to contact, and mailed to active and inactive members.

 Pros: Mid-range saturation across the USA, quarterly mail dates. Only active members being mailed to―Leadership mailed to each year to churches, businesses, schools, Hospitals, Media centers, and Conference/Union/NAD leaders.

Cons: NONE

1 Due to COVID-19, many conventions have been limited or closed. Many are still determining if these events will return with the same attendance as previous years.  
2 We used the Lake Union Conference in this example and retrieved this pricing data on February 17, 2022. There are eight union papers in the United States, and data will vary.
3 A 15% discount is applied when you commit to a full year of mailings, which includes four consecutive issues. 
4 There is no charge for design when you apply by the Early Bird submission date.

Design FAQ

Here's your first, and often only, chance to grab the prospect. So remember the "3 B's"-make your headline Bold, Brief, and Benefit-oriented. Use your headline to flag a particular audience, such as "Tools for Members" or "Science Teachers." If you offer a free brochure with the headline "Three foods to reduce your blood pressure in ONE week," it will produce leads for people with high blood pressure―great for health reconditioning centers.

Even a simple line drawing can capture attention. Photos and illustrations harmonizing with the product and headline will likely lift the response.

Rule number one: Get right to the point. With limited space, what you say is more critical in your placement display than in virtually any other type of advertising. Include features and benefits of prime importance to the prospect, and offer additional details that can be sent to them by request in exchange for their address or email. Having the address or email now allows you to contact them twice or three times with follow-up letters/emails.

Yes! Tell the prospect exactly what to do and how to do it. Giving the reader an action keeps your leads active by not using vague or confusing response instructions.
