  2. Brad says:

    Sermonspice.com is a great resource for inexpensive church media too.

    Kendall, this is such a helpful list! Thanks so much for putting in the time to share your ideas and resources with others! My wife and I have the same heart and passion, thanks for all you do! I can’t wait to check out the rest of your site!

    I go to a church with many young Christians or those with little or no church background. Our church children are taught Bible lessons with many illustrations from the great characters and stories of the Bible, i.e. Daniel and the Lions Den, David and Goliath, etc. Many of their parents don’t know these stories. I am looking for a way to teach these same stories with life lessons that are formulated on the adult level. The objective is for these parents to learn and become familiar with the same stories, so they can share them with the children. What do you recommend?

  5. Josh White says:

    Also check out http://www.danstevers.com. He a graphic/video designer for churches, and sometimes gives away some of his work. Recently, if you were to follow him on Twitter, he would send you 8 free sermon series packs. I hope this helps!

    Hey man! Great site! This is a great site for people just getting their feet wet with all the resources that are out there. Love that you have cmd first, as Brad is an awesome guy. Would love if you could add another awesome guy to your inexpensive list. http://www.motionworship.com Some amazing motions for only $50/yr, definitely a cheap way for smaller churches to get updated materials.
    Would love if you had a column with some of the great blogs out there like cmd where people can collaborate and get ideas!
    Also would love to know what wordpress theme you are running this site with.

  7. Thanks, Kendall, for this great information. This looks like an awesome resource site! As church web designers, we’re always on the lookout for good resources to help churches. We are definitely bookmarking your site! Thanks so much.

  8. Every week, a free graphic image and sermon/commentary is offered on this website, http://freechurchresource.com. I would appreciate being listed. Thank you. Rev. Dorothy Okray
