Spirit Blade Insider Subscription ($5/month, cancel any time)
As a special "Thank You" for those who want to financially support us on an ongoing basis, we've created the "Spirit Blade Insider" program. For five dollars a month, you can become a "Spirit Blade Insider" and gain exclusive access to "Paeter's Brain", an audio journal by Paeter Frandsen revealing the ups and downs, the frustration and excitement, and all the little (or big!) surprises that come with running Spirit Blade Productions! (Currently, this also includes clips of recording sessions and "mixing in progress" for Spirit Blade 3!)
Paeter records journal entries multiple times every month. Near the beginning of each month, Spirit Blade Insiders receive an e-mail containing links to listen to and/or download and keep the files if they wish.
Learn how you can pray for Paeter and Spirit Blade Productions, and get access to exclusive, super-secret information along the way! Become a Spirit Blade Insider today!

Why Are We Inviting Donations?
Our aspirations are always equal to or greater than our income. There is so much that we would like to offer to the world of Christian geeks, but time and finances are a constant limitation.
Current Needs (Updated March 2013):
The new website we're preparing to launch requires significant work and will cost around $1700 in total. In addition, each month Paeter usually reviews several movies (that he would otherwise wait and rent from Redbox to see, or not see at all) in order to produce timely and helpful reviews. (Tickets are between $5-$8 for each movie.) Our hosting costs for the website and podcast together are over $20 per month.
It's also Paeter's desire to financially support his family and allow his wife to cut back and eventually eliminate her need to work. Since 2006, Holly Frandsen has sacrificially chosen to work a job she would rather not, and provide most of the Frandsen family income because she believes in the vision and mission of Spirit Blade Productions. It is only because of this that Spirit Blade Productions has been able to continue and move forward since launching in 2006.
At Spirit Blade Productions, we believe that supporting your local church should be the primary focus of your giving. We are also not a non-profit organization, and cannot offer tax deductions as incentive for your help. But we would be grateful for any support you choose to offer outside of your regular church giving, and will use every penny donated to equip, encourage and inspire Christian geeks to serve and live for Christ.
