SermonSearch.com, the leading online resource for sermon outlines and church media, has expanded their partnership with Worship House Media to include all new worship media in SermonSearch’s database of church resources. Through this partnership, SermonSearch.com aims to make multimedia more accessible to the majority of churches in America who face budget, time, and in-house talent constraints by offering a free 30 day trial with free sermons and worship media.
“We want to give pastors the resources and tools they need to create compelling, life changing sermons and worship experiences without draining the church budget or requiring additional time from church staff that could be better utilized in other areas of service,” said Tom Perrault, Senior Vice President of Salem Web Network. “The combination of a database with powerful church media and online Bible Study Tools for theological study will aid pastors in their preparation for not just Sunday services but all areas of ministry within the church.”
Pastors and church leaders are able to sign up for a free trial on SermonSearch.com and receive 30 free sermons and 3 free worship backgrounds. The website’s media collection features over 20,000 sermons, 2,000 video illustrations, and 8,000 motion and still backgrounds. The downloadable sermons by well-known and respect pastors such as Adrian Rogers, Johnny Hunt and Charles Stanley make preparing for Sunday easier while providing more time to focus on other ministry needs.
In addition to the large database of media, SermonSearch.com also aids pastors in their study of Scripture with Bible Study Tools found at bible.sermonsearch.com – a free online Bible resource center with over 29 translations and a library of commentaries, concordances, lexicons, and more – all with the ability to personalize text with highlighting, flagging verses, and online note-taking.
“Incorporating visuals into today's church is imperative as media can help pastors communicate visually in ways that words simply cannot,” said Jeff Parker, Vice President at Worship House Media. “Though budgets are justifiably tight, church media is still a good value for a church, especially a church without the means for a media team. Our partnership with SermonSearch.com will help make that possible.”
