Free Church Certificates

Church Certificates are sometimes hard to come by and to create these certificates or awards normally takes a lot of precious time...



I know how long it takes to create certificates, and I also know if you look online they almost always want to charge you for them.

So I'm paying-it-forward and giving you what Church Certificates I have created for free! These beautiful certificates are a very pleasant and affordable way to show your special church members or whoever the case may be how much you care and appreciate them. These free certificates available on FreeChurchForms.com will help many people in small to medium-sized churches who are not always able to purchase certificates for their special church events to honor their special church members.

You can make someone feel special by just printing out a church certificate on regular paper and presenting it to them but why bother if you're not willing to go the extra mile? I've always heard, "a thing worth doing is worth doing well". Pay attention to the little details and the person you're honoring will notice the difference. Here are four steps that you can take to make your certificate recipient extra happy!

  • 1. Select the Right Paper - Think about the weight and color. Ideally you want to choose thick, high quality paper or card stock that you can buy from your local office supply store or craft store. As far as colors go if you want something classy and elegant I would recommend a nice neutral shade like cream or off white. There are also 'speckled' types of paper but I would stay away from anything too distracting. For young kids you can go for bright colored papers in hues of sunny yellow, baby blue or light apple green. I would obviously try not to use darker colors like reds and navy blues unless you are specifically trying to create an effect. If the certificate template you choose has any graphics make sure the colors don't clash with the color of the paper. When in doubt, I say, go with white or cream.
  • 2. Print "Best Quality" - When the certificate templates were originally designed many of them were black and white because we thought most people (especially teachers working in schools) would not have access to a color printer. It seems though that this is not so much of an issue any more and so most of our certificates are now in full color. If you don't have a good quality printer you may want to have your church certificates printed at your local copy store. Unless this is an award that you tend to give out every week in class (Student of the Week etc.,) you will not want your certificate to print out all fuzzy and pixilated.
  • 3. Pick a Good Frame - Frames can cost anything from a dollar for an inexpensive plastic one up to $50 for something that comes pre-matted with a lovely ornate border. The type of frame you pick depends on the occasion and your budget. If you're going to be giving away a certificate to every student in your classroom or every attendee at your conference you may not want to spend too much money. One little word of advice - try to stay away from plastic frames. I have been able to buy inexpensive wooden ones for about a dollar and they look so much better! If you HAVE to buy plastic frames buy them in dark colors and please, nothing that looks like 'imitation wood'.
  • 4. Present it With Flair - How you present these church certificates are as important as the prep that goes before it. Know something about the person and state specifically what they did and what impact it had. One of my former bosses was a master at remembering something special about each of the participants who completed his four-day leadership training course and would share this as they walked to the front of the room. 

Little things make a difference such as these church certificates. Delight in the details and your Sunday School students, teachers, staff and employees will feel truly recognized and rewarded!

Visitor Testimonials

*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.

I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S. *Disclaimer

*This website has been very useful for my ministries with Hospice, the Hospital and Human Services. I recommend this website to any church, ministry or agency that is supporting or ministering to people. God Bless You - Chaplain Dave - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Just wanted to let you know how helpful your resources are. We are a small church and have missed out on doing a lot of things. We ordered your Church Forms on CD and are just pleased. Keep up the good work of providing resources for Churches. - Lillian - U.S. *Disclaimer

*I am a minister of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and have been tremendously blessed to access you and pray that God the Almighty favor you in what you do. You have enabled me to access ready-designed church documents. Thanks and God Bless You Terressa. - Bro. Mike - Kenya, Africa *Disclaimer

*Thank You! You're heart for giving free resources and making things so affordable is truly a blessing. My Pastor always says: "What you make happen for someone else, God will make happen for you!" May God richly bless you and your ministry to us and so many others, enlarge your territory and bring financial blessings with good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over!!! 10,000 Blessings! Leeanna - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Thanks for making this site available. I took over as secretary of our small church a few months ago, and I am having to create a lot of forms. This site is a blessing! - Vicki - U.S. *Disclaimer

*After years of frustration and being overcharged for Church Management software, I came across "Shepherbase" and all my problems were solved. *Disclaimer

This database:
  • 1. Tracks members and visitors
  • 2. Tracks contributions
  • 3. Organizes by both individual AND family
  • 4. Creates professional letters, relevant to church ministry
  • 5. Is easy to use
  • 6. Costs a mere fraction of other databases offering similar features. *Disclaimer

I am very thankful for this product and I recommend it to anybody wanting to exit the cost and complexity rat race of Church databases.
Thank you Shepherdbase!
