Illustrated Ministry creates accessible faith-based resources for the church and home. Our thoughtful and easy-to-use materials are designed to foster authentic faith engagement with our refreshing designs, creative activities, and intergenerational focus.
We celebrate the expansive image of God in everyone, through open and inclusive language, diverse imagery, and progressive theology.
Over seventy denominations around the world, and across the theological spectrum, enjoy and use our resources. Aware of our diverse customer base, we have found our community values our work for a variety of reasons:
- Progressive theology
- Diversity in content and illustrations (you won’t find a white Jesus here)
- Inclusive language
- Intergenerational focus
- Digital and downloadable content
- Tiered-pricing so products are available to churches and groups of all sizes
We have a growing team of contributors here at Illustrated Ministry, and you can read more about the folks who make it all happen below. And if you need to contact us, you can do so here.
