M5:9 has been designed as a place where ministers of all ages, genders, nationalities, ethnicities, economic status, educational background and personal experiences, can come together and assist one another in fulfilling the great commission. We are not a collection of individuals that have one natural supreme leader for we all answer to YAH. However, we do have leadership members that have taken on the responsibility of ensuring that M5:9 remains committed to the original design, despite any given level of success. We are all accountable to each other and that will remain the reality of M5:9 until YAH requires our presence. One of our main goals is to provide a consistent flow of new (in season) ministry content from M5:9 ministers, and ministers / ministries that we partner with. If you have any video, audio, literary work or other forms of ministry media that you would like to have placed on this site, please send us an email with a link to review your work online. We will NOT download or upload any files that come to us by way of email.Audio files must be uploaded to soundcloud and videos must be uploaded to youtube. Documents must be uploaded to mediafire.com or dropbox. Information on how to do this will be provided after review.
M5:9 does NOT require any of the ministers we partner with to have documents or degrees from any higher learning or ministry institutions. All that is required is a history with "The Church" and the willingness to operate within the realms of ones area of experience and not beyond those boundaries. With this being understood, when someone is in need of a minister, M5:9 will pair them with a minister that operates in an area of ministry that will make them of good service to the person in need.
Our ministry services are open to the public. If we are unable to assist directly, we will work with you to find someone that can be of service. In most cases all ministry services offered by M5:9 to the public, are offered free of charge. However M5:9 does not speak for any Ministry that we may refer someone to.
If you have a ministry, or offer services to the public in the area's of health care, education, crisis intervention, addiction, clothing, housing, food, shelters, jobs training, church reconciliation or any other type of service that helps to meet peoples needs, please contact us. We would like to work directly with you in the building of a referral service on our site. We are also very interested in working with ministries / ministers / programs that deal with domestic violence, sex trafficking, gangs and prison. If you have a history dealing with other area's of ministry that are not named here, such as (homosexuality) please contact us, we would like to partner with you as well. No area is off limits, as long as you are operating from a place of deliverance and are not involved in the lifestyle any longer, and you are willing to be completely transparent.
Please keep in mind that we are not open to working with everyone. Some types of behaviors, past or present, will not be tolerated by M5:9 for any reason. Keep this in mind if you are thinking about sharing information concerning the most taboo of issues.
M5:9 has decided to NOT pursue 501c3 status at this time. In the future we hope to open a non-profit branch of M5:9 that will deal only in the areas of charitable donations. If you are interested in participating in that aspect of M5:9 please send us your information and why you believe you are qualified to assist in the building of this branch. Once more, this is not a current focus of M5:9. Our goal is to do ministry and business exactly how YAH has called us to do it, without the threat of status revoking due to a difference in beliefs. M5:9 reserves the right to NOT promote concepts that we believe are contrary to the word of YAH.
The business model of M5:9 is based on this example as set forth in the Bible in regards to Ministers and Money. Our primary example is that of the Apostle Paul, who the scripture tell us was a tentmaker:
After this, Paul left Athens and went to Corinth. There he met a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had ordered all Jews to leave Rome. Paul went to see them, and because he was a tentmaker as they were, he stayed and worked with them.
In many ways, M5:9 members who have a skill set that allows them to create a product, do so using the same understanding that Paul did. They build with the understanding that their skills should provide a way for them to meet their basic needs. This is why 100% of the profit that is made by M5:9 Ministers goes right back into the production and presentation of more ministry aids and tools.
QUESTION: Does any of the money made from the products sold on this site go to help meet the daily needs of any of M5:9's Ministers?
ANSWER: Yes. It's understandable to question how finances are used by ministries these days. After decades of prosperity preaching and the making of millionaires from the misappropriation of funds, it's normal for people to have questions. This is why M5:9 has chosen to NOT apply for tax exempt status (501c3). We believe that we should be able to consider our skill sets as a means to provide for ourselves and our families, just like everyone else. At the same time, we are not looking to become rich. This is why we say that 100% of the profits made go right back into ministry. What this means is we are working ourselves into a position to do ministry full time. This will allow us to continue the creation of products that promote KINGDOM concepts as opposed to what is available in the market today.
QUESTION: Why is that so important?
ANSWER: It's important because so many so called BELIEVERS purchase products that promote the concepts of the enemy and do so because they are unable to find products that are comparable to what the world has to offer. For this to happen, we must advance from level to level, creating greater products with every advancement. These products have to compete in the market place, not just for the sake of turning a profit, but also to provide funding for the establishment of businesses that can employ other believers. For far too long believers have left their homes for 8 to 15 hours, everyday, to punch clocks in the world. These believers spend 8 to 15 hours, 5 to 7 days a week, building and establishing companies that promote products that push concepts to believers that are contrary to the Bible that we claim to believe in. These same believers then turn around and spend the lions share of their pay checks on purchasing products that promote biblically contrary concepts, while allowing their children to partake of these products, with full knowledge of the amount of damage that is being done.
QUESTION: How can this be avoided?
ANSWER: By supporting businesses that focus on ministry in the designing of their products and or the providing of their services. M5:9 is one of those businesses. If not M5:9, find another company that is in the business of ministry. Whatever you do, stop spending your hard earned money with companies that promote concepts that are contrary to what we have been taught in the Bible.

QUESTION: Why do you have Google Adsense that promotes concepts that are contrary to the teachings of the Bible?
ANSWER: A lot of the ads that come up are NOT contrary to the word of YAH. For those that do, we have tried to make sure that certain types of ads are NOT advertised on our site. At the same time we can't control them all. What we can do is make sure that we use the money generated from AdSense (in combination with other income generated) to promote the gospel all over the world. Our goal has been to do so from day one and we will work to that end. As we grow more knowledgeable of Adsense we will work to prevent any Ads that are contrary to the word of YAH. We assure you that our goal is to do just that.
