What does Spiritual Road charge to come to my church or gospel event?
Spiritual Road is all about ministry, not money, and asks nothing to appear at churches within a three to five hour drive of Belpre, Ohio. Most will present us with a love offering. We trust God to provide. Everywhere else, unless we are already traveling nearby, we need travel expenses covered. That includes gas, meals, lodging, and miscellaneous expenses if we can travel by automobile. Air fare for two (including extra luggage) and possibly vehicle rental may be involved for further distances. For senior centers, retirement centers, nursing homes, etc., we may ask a fee. We will often offer to come to these places, for a small fee, when they are along the way while we are traveling. It helps pay expenses.
Why do you charge a fee at small venues such as nursing homes?
These types of venues usually have money for activities and entertainment is often promised to residents as part of their fees package. We have travel and equipment expenses to recoup. We have thousands of dollars in equipment and many hours of time invested in perfecting our craft. Oftentimes, we are traveling through the area on tour and have lodging and meals to acquire. That is often all that the fees we charge pay for. We will often ask retirement centers to provide lodging within their facilities for a night in return for entertainment.
