Absolutely! We exist for you. We create resources for volunteers, Sunday School teachers, deacons, nursery workers, pastors, office managers, and more. 

Of course. Our mission is to volunteers and those who lead them. You definitely fall under “those who lead them.” You’ll find lots of practical ministry skills in here and we’ll help you empower your leaders and volunteers so you’re not doing it alone.

Most of our speakers come through our community and referrals. If you’re interested in speaking or know someone who is, watch the Facebook community and weekly emails for our open calls for speakers. I highly encourage you to become part of our community if you’re interested in speaking. We give preference to people we know over people we don’t.

We are a for-profit ministry and our aim is to be self-sustaining. We sell resources so we can continue to provide even more resources for free.
