Free Church Certificates to Celebrate Members

We all know it takes many members to work together to help grow, fertilize, and establish a church. While a lot of that work is done by paid staff, churches such as yours rely on the talents, time and passion of volunteers to make it all come together. They may be welcoming new members, teaching Sunday school or small group classes, helping run vacation Bible school or children’s church, or simply volunteering to paint or rebuild church steps. 

Regardless of the task, staff, volunteers and church members of all ages help make the church what it is. 

Certificates are the ideal way to recognize and remember key milestone events for church members, pastors and staff, and to help them feel special, remembered and appreciated.  

But preprinted certificates don’t always offer the perfect design — and you may not need 100 at a time.  

That’s why we’re excited to provide church certificate templates that are easy to customize for your ministry needs.
