Hello, and welcome to cartoonist Will Boyer’s Gospelman Ministries Patreon account!




ABOUT GOSPELMAN MINISTRIES
Gospelman Ministries is Will Boyer's attempt at simultaneously entertaining and ministering to kids and adults through entertainment media that has been, for the most part, lacking in Christian alternatives. First and foremost, Will Boyer is creating Christian comic strips, books, and graphic novels, but also has future plans for children's costume ministry, radio/podcast dramas, as well as video games and animations. He would love to see more entertainment options available to Christians that will build them up in their faith, promote and encourage Christ-like behavior, help them better understand their Christian beliefs and why they believe them, etc, and otherwise be entertained without being stained by the world (James 1:27). He is asking for monthly support, similar to as you would support a missionary.

ABOUT THE COMICS
Gospelman Ministries Comic Webstore



GOSPELMAN AND GOSPELMAN ADVENTURES -
Gospelman is a FREE TO READ Christian comic strip and comic book series starring a campy superhero who's never-ending mission is to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. After losing his sister Rachel in a tragic car wreck, Ted Silverman must adopt and raise his nephew Cody Silverman. Through a series of events set up by Divine Appointment, Ted comes to faith in Jesus Christ and devotes his life to serving Him. He is a Children's Church minister and VBS worker who takes up the mantle of Gospelman to entertain and minister to children. However, after an unexpected house fire rescue while in costume, Ted is shaken to his core. Realizing the stark and terrifying reality of every man, woman, and child's eternal destiny without Christ, Ted continues as his alter ego Gospelman in the hopes of saving some. The Gospelman webcomic first appeared online in 2010. There are plans for both children's (age 8-12) and young adult (12-18) series, as well as potentially a college & career age (18+) spin-off series without Gospelman. As Christian comics, the age range does not necessarily indicate any inappropriate, immoral content, but simply that the stories and teachings are more appropriate, better understood and more enjoyable to that age range. However, please be aware that certain Biblical teachings are not appropriate or applicable for all age groups. Kids' lessons about sharing toys would not be appropriate for adults and neither would Bible-based stories about sexual morality and marital faithfulness be appropriate for children. Gospelman Ministries aims to not only entertain, but to encourage Christians of all ages toward Godly living, loving God and all others, through teaching God's Word.




AT THE MASTER'S FEET -
"From the Gospels to novels and comics to cartoons, television, and film, you already know the story of the Christ. But do you know His teachings? His teachings are normally skipped over because they would bog down the fast-pace necessary for an enjoyable narrative. So, join us now, if you would, as we examine His teachings in illustration, At the Master's Feet." This comic is also FREE to read online, as Gospelman Ministries seeks to be just that - a ministry. It is our hope that spreading Christ's actual teachings will educate people not just on what Christ did for us, but on what He wants us to do for Him in our daily lives.


ABOUT FUNDING
William Thomas Boyer, the writer and/or artist behind several other webcomics and books such as SuperMilo and Hip Hop, is trying to use his literary and artistic abilities to serve Jesus Christ. He is asking for donations per month so that he may continue to provide Christian webcomics to his readers, among other Christian media entertainment, just as pastors and missionaries require funding to serve Christ in their churches and on the mission field full-time. Many if not all of his Christian webcomics, such as the Gospelman webcomics for example, will always remain free despite any funding or lack thereof, just as a preacher's sermon remains free apart from tithing. However, readers who become Patreon donors (Patrons) will be rewarded with extra things such as behind-the-scenes material like sketch book drawings, notes, scripts, and scans of the pencils and inks, as well as desktop backgrounds, blog entries, written Bible studies, and all sorts of other extra exclusive digital content as it comes. And the higher you pledge per comic strip or page, the more rewards you get as a Patron. As we pick up more funding support, more reward tiers will eventually be made available. Please see the right side panel and below for more information about our reward tiers.

Funding will be payment per month. However, because Will Boyer is still tied down to a full-time job and may not be able to update every month, please know that you will continue to receive behind-the-scenes material, blog updates, etc, and that your funding will be directed towards affording to print the FREE series preview containing the GOSPEL message. These books are passed out at comic conventions and periodically given to children's homes and churches' youth ministries. Once funding reaches a certain goal amount per month, Lord willing, Will Boyer plans to create Christian comics and other media full-time, all thanks to the Lord and your allowing Him to use you.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR, WILL BOYER
Will Boyer is a creator of both comic strips, comic books and graphic novels, most notably the webcomic strips “SuperMilo” and both “Gospelman” and “Gospelman Adventures.” He is also the illustrator of Kelly Morrison Handerhan's children's book "'Twas the Night Before Andy the Pug's Christmas" and the co-creator, character concept artist and penciler/inker on Empire Comic Lab’s "Hip Hop."

Will wanted to be a comic book artist since the age of 9 years old in 1994. Incorrectly believing he was a Christian since his childhood, he came to understand in 1999 at the age of 14 what it truly meant to be a sinner before a righteous God and that he had never personally repented of his sins or asked the Lord to forgive him. Accepting Christ as Savior permanently changed him from the inside out. At the age of 17 on September 3rd, 2002, the Lord called Will Boyer to serve Him, promising that He would one day make him a missionary. From 2003-2007, Will Boyer trained for the mission field at Piedmont Baptist College, now renamed Piedmont International University. Unsure of what to do next, he enrolled at Forsyth Technical Community College and studied in the Digital Effects and Animation Technology major from 2007 to 2010. While there, he received training not only in 2D and 3D animation, but also in digital special effects for live action film and in video game design. Since then he has been illustrating children's books, self-publishing his own comics, and working for small-time publishing companies. Unfortunately, finances have slowly forced him to mostly withdraw from art in order to work full-time jobs in customer service and warehouse. In the meanwhile, his Biblical studies continue and he attempts to minister to others whenever possible. Most recently, he has been involved with the Forsyth Prison and Jail Ministry as a part of the Calvary Baptist team. Will Boyer does not know the exact future the Lord has for him, but would love to serve Him with the artistic talents and abilities the Lord has given him. He created Gospelman in 2004 while training at Bible college, has been refining the story and characters for years and would like to create the character's on-going adventures, as well as spin-off series and video games. He is asking for help to afford the printing of books and, Lord willing, allowing him to create Gospelman and other Christian comics and media full-time one day.
