Any minister can tell you that having great resources are key to anyone doing ministry. The more quality resources you have the better equipped you will be to reach people for Christ. Whether you tweak the resource or use it completely out the box, it can save you tons of time and energy overall.
Having a background in student ministry, the good news for fellow student ministers is that there are plenty of great people providing resources. Whether it is Youth Specialities or Group or Download Youth Ministry there are some great folks and former student ministers providing some great resources for student ministers. And what has become even better over the last few years has been the affordability of these resources. I’ve been in Ministry for over 20 years now and there has NEVER been a better time to purchase curriculum and ideas for your ministry.
Enter Terrace Crawford. He is a friend of mine, fellow Orange Blogger as well as a Student Ministry veteran with a ton of experience…with over 20 years. He just launched Ministry Downloads, a new resource site for student ministers. These resources are beta-tested, ready-to-go, affordable, and totally downloadable.
Here is a little more information about what Ministry Downloads is and how it works:
- These resources are for Senior Pastors, Youth Leaders, Children’s Leaders and Small Group Leaders, among others.
- Leaders can CONTRIBUTE. In fact, contributors earn profits through royalties earned on the sale of their products and can also earn income by signing up as a registered Affiliate of MinistryDownloads.com.
- Anyone can submit their resources for review & publishing here. This is amazing, especially for student ministers because money doesn’t grow on trees and getting a little bit of extra money for work you are already doing is awesome!
So head on over to Ministry Downloads and check out what resources they have to offer but also what resources you have that you might be able to offer others.
