To provide free, high quality, easy to use ministry resources to anybody serving the local Christian church.

"To prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up" (Eph 4:12, NIV)


Take a resource, give a resource, improve a resource.

"...Freely you have received, freely give." (Matt 10:8, NIV)

Message from the founder

There are many 'free ministry resources' websites, but most of them are confusing to navigate and have tons of screaming adds begging for your attention. Google and Wikipedia are so popular because they not only have what you want, but they are also simple and not screaming for your money. This wiki will be successful because every church volunteer will be open to high quality ministry resources that are free, simple and easy to use. If you need resources, feel free to use and adapt anything you find on this site. Many volunteers and pastors already have years of resources and programming they have created that they will be willing to share. So please, if you have resources, share them here and help in this resource explosion. Everyone has the power to improve and contribute to the site. It is the power of all of our combined contributions and improvements that will make this an resource a real blessing to ministry leaders around the world.

Note that this is all volunteer. I am not making a red cent off this. This is all about impacting the world for Christ (Mt. 6:21). Please help me "provide free, high quality, easy to use ministry resources to anybody around the world serving the local Christian Church."
