Honorariums & Offerings:


  • In most cases, VMM will pay the travel expense for invitations within a 3 hour driving radius from Nashville, TN
  • For invitations in the Houston, TX (within 2hr radius), a small travel expense of $50 is requested to be covered. 
  • For all other invitations, please contact me directly for travel costs.  Economy airfare is requested for invitations outside of driving distance.


If your church/organization is com­fort­able with a bud­geted set fee, please send me the best way to com­mu­ni­cate with you so we can determine the best option for the church and VMM based on your budget and the operational needs of VMM.


  • VMM would ask for a love offering to be received*
  • an appeal for monthly support of VMM Missions,
  • small table space for sales of Music cds (all sales support VMM missions)
  • and help with lodging while at your church or event.

*Love offering: VMM understands the budgeting concerns of the local church and smaller organizations and your first priority is to care for the needs of your people & God’s house. A smaller congregation or organization typically will not have the same resources as a larger congregation.

VMM has set monthly expenses along with monthly support to our various international missions efforts.  This does not include costs of 2-4 international missions trips each year. Whether it be an agreed upon honorarium or a love offering to bless the ministry efforts of VMM, we appreciate your contribution to the work that God is doing through this ministry and considers it a privilege to be a part of that same work in your congregation or organization.

In all these things, we know that God is our ultimate source for all that we need.

  1. Hey Vanessa!
    I spoke with Carla, my best friend & Chair of our Women’s Ministry Committee, about you and she reviewed your website. We would love to have you! We have not confirmed a date yet, but will be one of the first two Friday evenings in November (11/7 or 11/14). Are one of those dates better for you than the other?
    Talk to you soon!
