Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The stories you will hear on our website are real and honest. We believe that the telling of those stories is healing. Healing for the storyteller and healing for many listeners, as well. A God Story is about how our Father intervened, interrupted, interceded, or simply changed our story. An Altered Story.

Altered Stories Ministry founder, Mischelle Saunders Gottsch, is the host of each podcast. She has a unique talent for helping women tell their stories. This is mostly due to her own experiences and her own altered story. Mischelle has a strong background in leadership and marketing. She uses those talents to gain trust and promote the episodes, Altered Stories has a strong board that also supports and promotes the ministry as well.

The professional backgrounds of the Founder and Board members provide different talents and bring high levels of expertise in key areas that will enable Altered Stories to accomplish its mission. Altered Stories has also contracted with very capable producers and editors so each podcast gives the listener a great experience and allows the storyteller to have confidence her story will be presented in the best way possible.
With a growing audience, and continued marketing and exposure, ASM is confident the financial resources will also become available so more listeners can hear the stories and more lives are changed, altered.

TO DATE:
Altered Stories Ministry has had over 7400 podcast downloads and now has listeners in 40 different countries. We have approximately 300 unique visitors to our website each month, and our social media exposure continues to grow.

GOALS:
Podcast
1. Cross 7,500 plus total downloads by end of the year or get into podcast show syndication or networks.
2. Have at least one download from 50 different counties.

Website
1. 10,000 unique visitors to the website by end of year. ASM needs to continue to be instrumental in helping transform women’s lives around the world through Jesus Christ by the God stories and blogs we share.

Monthly Support
1. Raise an additional $300 in new monthly support from donors/partners ASAP (Uncommon Giving, Giving Tuesday, Board Fundraising). Currently, we are averaging $300 a month coming in from Board members and one monthly giving partner.

Additional funds will allow us to add a third or fourth podcast episode a month to accomplish the other goals listed above and remove the sponsorship requirements for podcasts.

Volunteer Resources
1. Part-Time Virtual Admin Assistant/Content Editor
2. Virtual Marketing/Fundraising and Events Coordinator (Email, Women’s Conference, Virtual Fundraisers) 3. Executive Director (20-30 hours a week)

Ministry Partnerships
Add two new faith-bases women’s ministry partnerships (alignment with our mission) by end of year that would help us build our brand and reach our ministry goals.
