About


This is where I tell you more about me.

Three sentences just about sum me up.

I am a natural disruptor, writer of sentences and paragraphs, voracious reader, digital communications junkie, and completely geeky about marketing and technology. As often as I can, I spend time with my wife and two young boys. The rest of the time you can find me in my little cottage in the backyard where I work.

When you need to talk about yourself in the third person.

Ben Stroup is a writer, consultant, content activist, digital explorer, and senior vice president for fundraising communications at Pursuant where he helps leaders and organizations develop fully integrated, sustainable, publishing models that drive leads, donors, revenue, and engagement.

He has written, edited, or collaborated on more than 30 books and eBook projects. Some of his latest book projects include Unconditional Love (B&H Publishing Group, 2012), Hope in Front of Me (with former American Idol finalist Danny Gokey, NavPress, 2013), and Awaken the Outlaw (Abingdon Press, 2015). Watch Ben's recent TV interviews about his latest book on The 700 Club and The 700 Club Interactive.

Ben is a graduate of Belmont University (Nashville, Tenn.). He and his wife, Brooke, along with our two boys, Carter and Caden, live in the Middle Tennessee area.

You're busy. So I tried to make it as easy as possible for you to get what you need.

The magic button.

Your life is complicated enough already.

That's why I created a magic button. You want to review writing samples and better understand what it would be like to work together. I want you to have that information.

Go ahead. Press the button below.

Just to clarify.

The button above will send an email to my favorite literary agent, David Shepherd. If you'd rather, you can call him at 615.476.3297. His email is david@drsagency.com

But typing in his email address into your favorite email engine isn't nearly as fun as pressing the magic button above. (Am I right? Of course!)

David is a really nice guy. And he'll get you whatever you need. We look forward to talking to you soon.
