My Christmas Wish List

The most wonderful time of the year brings an inevitable dose of stress for church leaders – budget season. As you look ahead to next year’s spending, consider investing in a few areas that could really make an impact.

For your kids ministry, create a fun and safe environment with check-in stations, quality curriculum, play equipment, and foam floor tiles. Give guests stellar first impressions with parking signs, coffee, umbrellas, and exceptional customer service. Upgrade your worship experience affordably with a quality soundboard, mics, projector, and camera. Support your student pastors with solid resources like Grow Curriculum, Sustainable Youth Ministry, and Streamline office tasks with Planning Center, Apple products, a fast laser printer, and Vistaprint for printing needs.

The most worthwhile investments are always in your people – the congregation you shepherd and serve.
