Free Photo and Graphics Resources that may be useful for Church Ministry

This year I making more of an effort to help other church pastors and ministry leaders find helpful resources for their ministry. And by sharing my list with you it will be easy for me and my volunteers to remember where they are.

I used to work in the marketing department for well known brand and we had a big budget for the best graphic design programs, best print services and we hired real models instead of using stock photos. When I became a full time pastor in 1996 that all changed and I had to learn how to get results with a much smaller budget.

I now use Microsoft Publisher for desktop publishing and I make most of my titled graphics saving Powerpoint files as JPEG or PNG files. I use for the church website. I use for photo editing.  Pablo by Buffer for quick title graphics. for the weekly sermon podcast. I am always looking for new images and have been compiling a list of free graphics for the sermon Powerpoints, the website, the podcast title slides and other projects.

Here is my list (so far) help me add to it in the comment section.
