Your first choice for quality ministry gifts should be Kerusso, which comes alongside pastors with the evangelism strategy of “Change Your Shirt, Change the World!” The simplest gospel message of God’s sacrifice, love, and forgiveness has been captured on a red T-shirt called “Crazy Love,” which was based on the best-selling book of the same name by Pastor Francis Chan, giving the message of “God is love,” according to Matthew 22:37–40 NIV: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Another ministry tee with a direct message is the green “Coming Back Soon” design. This creative design allows pastors to celebrate with those looking for Jesus’s soon return and warn the 30 million people who will die this year before hearing the message of salvation in Jesus’ words, “Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give it to everyone according to what he has done,” (Revelation 22:12).
While all pastors are unified in their ultimate goal of seeing lives transformed as people come to know and understand Jesus, not all pastors have the same interests or even the same areas of evangelism. Their pastoral gifts should reflect the calling that God has placed on their lives, not be a carbon copy of their fellow pastors.
Kerusso has made it easy to let your pastor know that you appreciate him or her for the specialized gifts that they bring to your church. Without them, your church or ministry would be missing a significant piece of the evangelism puzzle. Some of these ministry gifts include Christian travel mugs, Christian iPhone covers, and Christian wallets.
Remember, your pastor is not concerned with how much you spend, but that we are called to give back for all they have given. “And now, friends, we ask you to honor those leaders who work so hard for you, who have been given the responsibility of urging and guiding you along in your obedience. Overwhelm them with appreciation and love!” (1 Thessalonians 5:12–13, MSG). Let the overwhelming begin here! Get your ministry gifts today.
