How will Ministry Pass help you?

As a young lad sitting in church I used to look at the pastor up front thinking he had an easy job.

I thought sure, he’s busy on Sundays but what does he do the rest of the week?

Little did I know…!

After becoming a youth pastor and now supporting church planting efforts as a missionary in Thailand, it didn’t take me long to realize that as a pastor you’re busy all week.

It’s not just the long hours or the fact you’re always on call, it’s that your job description covers so many varying roles.

A pastor is a speaker, scholar, counselor, event planner, handyman, community leader, accountant, and conflict resolution specialist—all rolled into one.

There’s just a lot to do and sometimes it seems never ending…

I’m not saying Ministry Pass is a miracle solution to every ministry problem, but the tools and resources they give you will at least help you breathe a little easier knowing your preaching calendar and media side are taken care of.

What I like about Ministry Pass…

1. MP is your all-in-one sermon stop shop

Joining Ministry Pass is like hiring a sermon planner who takes care of all your graphic design, titles, sermon outlines, small group discussions, Sunday school lessons and youth teaching schedules.

That’s pretty neat right?

You have unlimited access to hundreds of ideas all in one place wherever you are and from any device.

2. MP is cost-effective

You get to test drive Ministry Pass completely risk free with their 14 day free trial.

That means you can see what’s on offer and decide whether it’s right for you before paying a penny.

There are 2 membership options:

1. Monthly – $49/month for 12 months

2. Yearly – $499/year (a 14% discount)

Imagine if you had to hire a graphics designer and a video editor to come up with bumper videos, posters, slides and social media graphics.

How much would that cost?

Not only is Ministry Pass a huge time-saver, they’re cost effective too!

3. MP will revolutionize your church’s preaching

You can download creative sermon series based on any topic you can think of. I promise you’ll never be short on ideas again.

Use their done-for-you templates as a springboard to spark innovative ideas of how you can approach a topic from a new and interesting angle.

The result?

More compelling sermons that ultimately lead to more people engaging with your preaching, more people remembering your talking points and talking about them throughout the week.

This will take your preaching to a whole new level and help make your Sunday services an even bigger unforgettable event.

4. MP give great help and support

There’s a whole myriad of ways you can contact them if you want to ask a question or are unsure of anything.

You can contact them via their live chat on MinistryPass.com, email them or speak to their support team by calling 800-379-8033 (9-5 EST).

Every time I’ve contacted them they’ve always gotten back to me in good time and with a helpful, friendly response.

They’re also active on Twitter and have a ‘very responsive’ rating for replying to queries quickly via their Facebook page.

My honest opinion for fellow preachers

Sermon planning and prep is the biggest pressure pastors feel week to week.

For most, it begins on Tuesday and builds until late Saturday night.

Not only is this super stressful (trust me I’ve been there!) but it’s no way to fulfill your potential as a preacher.

Ministry Pass is simply the best resource I’ve ever come across that helps relieve the pressure of preaching preparation.

It really is the ultimate sermon prep companion!

Essentially MP gives you a more efficient way of planning and preparing sermons.

Are you somehow cheating the preaching game by taking advantage of the resources available?

Not at all.

Ministry Pass isn’t about giving you transcripts to memorize, instead they provide you with the ‘big idea’, Bible verses and talk point ideas so you can customise your message according to your style and for your church.

You can make the sermon ideas your own but at least you have a framework to work with and you’re not having to start from scratch.

Not only that, you will now have more time available for other ministry or spending time with family and that alone is priceless.

In my opinion, Ministry Pass the best time-saving and most cost-effective resource for preachers who want a more effective way to plan and prepare sermons.

  1. I love your material , but my question is do you just have a package for just the sermons ideas? I pastor a small church and we are not equipped for the digital part of your material. Thanks

  2. Hi Simon 🙂

    Do you know how often they add new sermon series bundles?

    I’m going to talk to our leadership team about this and see if they’re interested because it would save our pastor a lot of time in preparing sermons.

    I really think he will be interested! It seems like there is a lot to offer with the lessons and games and activities.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Rob,

      I can tell you Ministry Pass update their libary each and every month with new sermon series, new events and annoucement bundles for adults, young people and kids.

      I just want to emphasise, this is a valuable resource for helping to plan and prepare for not just Sunday mornign preaching, but for Sunday school, your young people’s program and your connect group system too!

      Now that’s pretty neat : )

  3. Our church has just started running monthly sermon series and I love the idea that you can get done for you sermon outlines with beautiful graphics and videos. I never knew anything like this ever existed!

    We’re already seeing a positive reaction from our existing members who love the monthly themes and are inviting their friends more because, as you say, it helps make your Sunday morning service a special event.

    It looks like Ministry Pass has some really neat ideas for Christmas and Easter sermon series too so I shall definitely be presenting this as a way forward to our church board.

    • Thanks Shenai! Yes organising your preaching into sermon series, whether that be 4 weeks, 6 weeks or 8 weeks is definitely a great idea all round.

      It makes planning your preaching calendar and coming up with ideas so much easier and your messages way more memorable for your congregation.

      All of the Ministry Pass sermon series bundles I’ve seen also come with invites you can tailor and print as a tool you can equip your people with to invite their family and friends as well as social media images and post ideas so you can promote your upcoming series on your church Facebook page and so on!

      All the best to you!

  4. As a new preacher I have to say Ministry Pass has been a true God send! 

    What most people don’t realise is that they also give you training and guidance on all things to do with sermon prepping and communicating.

    I’ve taken a few preaching training courses in the last year or so but this training has been the easiest to follow. They’ve helped reinforce some of the techniques I learned before.

    Of course there can never be a substitute for seeking God’s voice and guidance in prayer but I also believe God can give you revelation and help through the wisdom of your Christian brothers and sisters. By helping each other we can become more effective in our ministries.

    Thanks very much and God bless you! Keep up the great work!

    • I think you hit a really good point here. Why do we need to reinvent the wheel every time and start our sermon outlines from scratch when there’s a ton of resources available to you? 

      I’m always looking for tools and technqiues that will make our lives as church leaders more effective (not more difficult!) and Ministry Pass definitely fits the bill.

      Thanks so much for sharing your own experiences with Ministry Pass, I know it’s going to help other leaders reading this.
