Freebie Friday #74: Stock photo gallery FREE for ministries

Free youth ministry resources every FridayShift Creative is giving away their entire stock image gallery for FREE to ministries! In case you’re not familiar with stock photography, it’s images that are free from copyright restrictions and royalty fees, meaning you can freely publish and print the images. I use stock images all the time on my blog here so I don’t accidentally infringe on anyone’s copyrighted material, but stock images are never free, which is why Shift Creative’s giveaway is so valuable. It’s the legal way to create lesson graphics, PowerPoint slides, and newsletter images. Brian Buchanan is one of the photographers. Here is his summary:

Shift Creative is a Christian media production company that was started to help meet the needs of small churches and organizations that can’t always afford the big name production houses. For Tim’s Freebie Friday we are offering our entire 755 picture stock photo gallery for free. Go to, click the link for in the middle of the page and you’ll have full access to our high-resolution picture gallery. Just find the picture you want, put your cursor over it, and click Save from the menu that appears on the right. If you’d like to talk with us about our graphic design, web design, or video production services then just email Brian at and we’ll work out a sweet deal.

Thanks, Brian!

Skypecast Guest Today: My Sr. Pastor

Today we’ll kick off the Skypecast conversation with the topic of Working With Sr. Pastors. My own Sr. Pastor, John LeVahn, will join us for about 20-30 minutes to talk about our relationship and how we work together. If you’re struggling with your Sr. Pastor and would like advice or input from another Sr. Pastor about your situation, this is the perfect opportunity! Come with your questions and ideas. After the first 20-30 minutes of “Working with Sr. Pastors” we’ll move on with our normal format of whatever you guys want to bring to the table. See you tomorrow at 1:00 PM central time!
