A library of curated content you can trust.
What if your days of scouring the internet for worship inspiration was over? What if there was one place you could find that inspiring story, that beautiful prayer, that heart-pounding quote that brings the gospel to life in your context?
Welcome to the Pastor’s Workshop
It all started with a simple question:
In this digital age, why is it so difficult to find great worship resources?
Shouldn’t there be an online resource I can quickly and reliably go to to find:
- Inspiring Illustrations for my Sermons
- Quotes, Curated specifically for Sermons
- Liturgy, organized topically, for my Worship Services.
From this simple question, the Pastor’s Workshop was formed.
But why choose us when there are so many different options?
Curation is the key
What Makes Us Different?
We know there are millions of websites out there, but we also know what is going to separate the best from the average is curation. Who can bring together the best illustrations, quotations, and prayers to help pastors lead great worship services.

We recognize that if the Pastor’s Workshop is going to be your go-to resource, the library must constantly be expanding. For a site like this to be effective, it must be able to meet the urgent questions being asked and events happening in our world.
As a non-profit organization, our goal will always be to stay relevant by investing in ongoing content curation.
To that end, we are constantly adding new material to the site. Highlights of new material and/or seasonal materials are included in our weekly e-resource.
