“I am a part-time United Methodist pastor.  The Pastor’s Workshop provides great resources that help me with my sermon preparation.  There are quotes and sermon illustrations that can be searched topically. This is a quality site that would benefit any pastor.”

Got questions before you subscribe? Check out our FAQ or reach out and ask any specific question you might have. We will respond as quickly as possible!

What is the Pastor's Workshop?

The Pastor’s Workshop is a website dedicated to providing the highest quality online worship resources. The four major categories on the site are illustrations, quotes, liturgy and lectionary/scripture guides. Each of these categories is organized topically, with a search engine also available to find what you are looking for.

Why should I consider joining the Pastor's Workshop?

Have you ever noticed that the majority of the content availale on other sites are outdated? That’s because most of their work was done decades ago. The Pastor’s Workshop is a Non-Profit organization, which means that any revenue from the site will be re-invested into continuing to improve TPW by both adding great new content and subtracting content that no longer preaches.

Another significant feature is the addition of liturgy for those who worship in a more traditional style. Our quote section can also be extremely helpful in a variety of teaching contexts. We’ve heard many people say that joined for the illustrations, but then found the quotes and liturgy to be extremely helpful in their weekly worship planning.

Is Canceling Difficult?

Canceling is actually super easy. Just hover over “login” and click “My Account” on the top menu. Click “Subscriptions” then you should see your subscription. From there you should be able to click “cancel.” That’s it!

How much does it cost? Are there hidden fees?

The cost is $9.99 per month or $95 per year for our complete package, or $7.50 per month for our sermon essentials package. There are no additional taxes. Once you sign up, your account is set for automatic renewal each month or year unless you manually unsubscribe. No other fees will be charged, ever! For billing questions, contact [email protected]. Reminders are given in advance of annual subscriptions.

How does billing work?

Everyone who signs up for a premium subscription will receive a 7 day free-trial, after which you will be charged either your monthly or yearly fee. If you should cancel your monthly fee, you will receive access through the end of the billing cycle in which you cancel service. The same applies to a yearly account, access will remain until you have reached the end of your year. The charge will show on account statements as  “The Pastor’s Workshop.”  For billing questions, email [email protected].

What exactly am I paying for with a paid subscription?

When you subscribe to The Pastor’s Workshop, you are not paying for the content per se, but for the curation of the content. The Pastor’s Workshop has worked diligently to follow fair use policies with respect to the copyright of original works. The Pastor’s Workshop, on occasion, has also paid fees for the right to reproduce content from original works. The curation of this content, which includes thousands of unique illustrations, quotes, and liturgical materials, is what you are paying for. In a sense, The Pastor’s Workshop acts as your personal worhsip researcher, bringing together resources from all over the world to assist you in your worship preparation.

Is there a free-trial?

Yes. You have a full week to try out the resources and see if they elevate your worship & sermon planning.
