I appreciate Ministry Desk. So much of the work of a nice nonprofit can be impacted by the administrative assistant. Also, finding a good administrative assistant can be a struggle. I’m thankful that Ministry Desk exists, they have made my life a lot easier.

Ministry Desk found an experienced assistant that really fits with our culture and who also works well with me as a leader. Staying on top of email is now a non-stressful task (no small thing with multiple churches involved) and my ability to plan into the future has greatly increased. There are many administrative details that I simply don’t have to think about anymore. Having a virtual assistant has been both fruitful and very affordable.

Ministry Desk and our Ministry Desk virtual assistants have changed our organization! After going 18 years without an assistant, Ministry Desk matched me with the perfect virtual assistant for my needs, and she has helped me more than I could have ever expected or hoped for. Ministry Desk does an amazing job of identifying, vetting, discerning and matching potential assistants with clients like us. We see Ministry Desk as an extension of our HR function, and because of the success in the placement of five VAs (and counting), we intend to continue partnering with Ministry Desk for any administrative/virtual assistant capacity we require.

From the very first call, I knew this was going to be a professional service. To put it simply, Ministry Desk paired me with the best EA I have ever worked with. It was a perfect match for me and my team. I can´t recommend them highly enough.

Cari MaynardDirector of Ministry SupportFaith Church

I have had the privilege of working with Ministry Desk for the past 10 months and it has been a Godsend! My job pulls me in many different directions and that means I am away from my computer and unable to keep track of communications. Debbie, at Ministry Desk, came in and set up a great organizational system that allowed me to streamline the process of email responses and to do lists. Knowing that I am no longer missing important emails and project deadlines has helped me tremendously. She also is a great project lead and is able to do many tasks virtually to help ease my load. With the help of Debbie, I am able to focus on ministry affairs and know that she is working behind the scenes to help not only my success but my church’s as well. I strongly recommend the team at Ministry Desk!

Peter BrockRegion Leader - Europe and AfricaReaching and Teaching International Ministries (RTIM)

The administrative help provided by Ministry Desk has been invaluable to myself personally as well as to the overall productivity and efficiency of RTIM. The MD VA has freed up dozens of hours during the week for me to engage in deep work and to serve our missionaries in a much more effective manner. With the growth of RTIM our need for quality administrative help was growing as well. Ministry Desk has met and exceeded our expectations in every way!

What is Ministry Desk?

We understand the pressure that comes with working in ministry and wearing multiple hats. Busy work and administrative tasks take up a lot of time and keep you from making progress on what’s most important. When you aren’t able to focus on what’s most important it causes stress and can leave you feeling frustrated.

At Ministry Desk, we’ve assembled a team of experienced administrative and executive assistants who can help alleviate the burden of administrative work.

Do you only work with churches and non-profits?

While we primarily work with churches and other non-profit ministries, we also pair remote assistants with Christian professionals in a number of contexts. We’d love to connect with you on a Discovery Call to uncover the specific needs of your situation.

Can I afford a remote assistant?

According to, an average full-time executive assistant employee costs an employer $60,684/year (not including taxes, benefits, or other overhead expenses, which would increase that amount significantly).

The average expense of hiring one of our remote assistants at 60 hours/ month  is $23,400/year. There are no extra or overhead expenses since assistants pay for their own taxes, software, and equipment. The cost savings benefit coupled with the efficiency and productivity level you receive with a remote assistant makes for a large return on your investment.

We would love to connect with you on a discovery call and uncover how we can best serve you.
