Free Resources During Shutdown

ChurchResourcesMany ministries have made their tools and products either free or at reduced prices. Some of us have extra time on our hands, and this is a wonderful time to make the most of this situation!

Ligonier Ministries

Ligonier Ministries has opened up their collection of teaching series, which represents something like 2,500 lectures. They’ve also added 20+ teaching series to Amazon Prime and unlocked the group study feature at Ligonier Connect so you can take courses with others.


Logos is offering free access to some of their resources and courses, plus a free Faithlife Connect subscription (which allows you to watch films, documentaries, etc).


Crossway is offering free access to their basic subscription plan to all users through May 31, 2020. This gives access to study Bibles and other solid resources. They also have several free ebooks.

Adventures in Odyssey

Adventures in Odyssey is offering a free 4-week trial.

Simeon Trust

Simeon Trust has reduced the cost of their courses from $19 to $9.

Getty Hymn Sing

Their children helped (with hand actions!) in a family hymn sing. Requires Facebook account.


The Dwell Bible app is free for 60 days.

Redeem TV

Redeem TV has launched a beta of their software with lots of free shows and movies.

Kids Free Resources

I know it says it is for “kids,” but with free movies and activities for the whole family, you might find something for you also! Zion Free Kid Resources During Shutdown
