Sermon graphics come in all shapes and sizes. They’re as unique as the sermons themselves. Creating these eye-catching graphics can be as equally challenging as writing a compelling sermon.
Thankfully, there are plenty of options to create graphics that can fit a church’s budget or timeframe.
Grab one from a graphic website
There are a number of websites out there dedicated to creating cheap or free graphics specifically for churches. Here are a number of options that you can check out:
- Graceway Media
- Rise Up Resources
- Creation Swap
- Church Media Design
- One Church Resource
- Church Media Source
Borrow from another church
Mega-churches have huge staffs, often with their own graphic designer (or two). Thankfully, plenty of these churches are also willing to share what they create.
Hire a freelancer
Hiring an outside designer can be more expensive, but worth it if you know what you want and are willing to pay a little extra to get it done right. If you don’t know a local designer, there are a few sites where you can hire freelance graphic designers:
Do it yourself
Creating the graphics yourself has become easier than ever thanks to the wide availability of high-quality images online and access to powerful design software.
If you know how to use Photoshop and have some time, creating some custom graphics is also an option. Here are some of the best websites with free stock photos:
If you need some added instruction on a DIY sermon graphic, purchase the Church Graphics Handbook from Pro Church Tools. The Creative Pastor has also collected many of these great resources at the Church Media Spot.
