Sending Personal E-Mails to Dr. Ed Smith
Because of the extremely high volume of emails and questions addressed to Ed Smith, he is not able to personally respond to each one. For this reason, most of the questions addressed to Ed Smith receive a form response. Occasionally he may determine that his response to your question might offer benefit to the larger audience in which case he may send your question and his response to the entire membership of the International Association for Theophostic Ministry (IATM). Before you submit a question to Dr. Ed Smith please know that your question may be used in this fashion. We are sorry that he cannot answer every request and thank you for your understanding.
Submitting Work for Publication
Dr. Ed Smith and Theophostic Prayer Ministries are appreciative of those who are using their gifts and talents to write books, articles and teaching materials related to TPM. However, we do not accept unsolicited submissions for publication and do not publish third party works at this time. Please DO NOT publish a work that gives any impression that you are representing this ministry, expanding its teaching or clarifying its message. For example, to produce a work entitled "Doing Theophostic with Children" would be a violation of trademark law. The name Theophostic is a registered trademark and protected by law.
Please be conscious of this and avoid using the name unlawfully. We would prefer that you not use the name Theophostic in any publication you produce. Simply call what you do something else such as "Prayer Ministry." To use the name Theophostic to draw people to your website, sell a product or promote your ministry is a violation of International Trademark laws.
If you have a testimony or article that you think would be valuable to the Theophostic Community please contact our Association (IATM) info@tpassociation which does accept submissions for possible publication. However, we reserve the right to not publish anything that is submitted for any reason without explanation.
Personal Ministry with Dr. Ed Smith
Because Ed Smith is currently committed to training others and developing the training materials, he is not accepting any ministry recipients now or in the near future. He also does not make any recommendations or referrals for others offering ministry. No person in the home office of Theophostic Prayer Ministry or any person that may be in relationship with Ed Smith is providing ministry by Ed Smith's recommendation or referral. When seeking out a qualified ministry facilitator use caution and hold up the ministry guidelines and evaluations made available through this site as your standard of evaluation. Since every person who completes the Basic and/or Advanced Material receives only a certificate of completion, any statement made by such a person proclaiming any level of qualification, certification or expertise is not endorsed by this ministry. Any person who claims to be related to, endorsed by, or affiliated with Dr. Ed M Smith and/or Theophostic Prayer Ministries is doing so without this ministry's or Dr. Smith's knowledge.
