As a Ministry, Stained Red relies on proceeds from album and merchandise sales as well as donations. Everything we bring in goes straight back into the ministry and nothing is taken for profit. Costs include:
- Travel Expenses - gas, food, lodging
- Studio Time
- Additional Promotional Expenses, Merchandise
- Website Expenses
Q: Are you a band or a ministry?
A: We are a ministry first and a band second. We believe that our God-given talents should be used to bring glory to God and HIS kingdom.
Q: Do you make a living from this?
A: No. We all have jobs and don't rely on this for a source of income. All profits collected are poured back into the ministry, even for paid shows outside the church venues.
Q: Do you charge for your shows?
A: Yes and no, depending on the venue. We do not charge for church-related shows, but only ask for the ability to sell Stained Red merchandise as well as any offerings that the church may be willing to provide. We do play live shows outside of the church venues and are paid as any other band would.
