We do a youth pastor gift guide every year and it’s a big hit. Personally, I think it’s a great way to list all the things that I love. This year the youth pastor’s gift guide doesn’t have a ton of tech toys, but instead has some essential things that youth pastors need.
These are all things that I used in my youth ministry, or I would love to use/have. If you want to purchase us a gift this year feel free to send it to us (you can find my address here).
How to use this list and the coming lists: forward it on to a board member, your lead pastor, or just a family that loves ya. If you have money at the end of the year, purchase things from this list as a way to build up the resources for your youth ministry.
Here is this years youth pastor gift guide: technology
GoPro Hero 4 Silver :http://amzn.to/1vx62Ej – Make some slick videos with this thing!
Kindle Unlimited : http://amzn.to/1sdsbHL – This is every book lovers dream. The only problem with this 9.99 a month subscription fee is that there aren’t a ton of christian books on this service. I am sure Christian publishers will slowly adopt it.
Twelve South HiRise for iPhone/iPad mini-brushed Metal Stand Designed to Work with your Apple Lightning Cable: http://amzn.to/1vFzU6v – This thing looks awesome. I would love to have this on my stand up desk that I am going to build over Christmas.
Kingston Digital DataTraveler SE9 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive : http://amzn.to/1ubkLFt – This is the only flash drive that you need.
BenQ W1080ST 1080p 3D Short Throw DLP Home Theater Projector :http://amzn.to/160ntIH – Short throw projectors are made for youth ministry. Short throw projectors only need to be feet away from the wall to cover the whole thing. In my house, I have a similar projector and it is 3.5 feet off the wall, and it projects onto a 120 inch screen. Get it for your youth room, or meeting space.
Behringer EUROLIVE B115W Active 2-Way 15-Inch PA Speaker System with Bluetooth Wireless Technology : http://http://amzn.to/1zjUryt – This is the best youth ministry speaker hands down.

Apple iPad mini 2 with Retina Display ME279LL/A (16GB, Wi-Fi, White with Silver) : http://amzn.to/1yIBsgN – Having an iPad or iPad mini is a must for all youth pastors. You should be reading on one, and preaching from it. It’s a must have.
Amazon Prime: http://amzn.to/1sdr0YI , Unlimited, ad-free streaming of over a million songs, Instantly watch over 40,000 movies and TV episodes, FREE two-day shipping (no minimum order size), Borrow Kindle books. – I am adding this to my budget this year. I can’t wait for this app to come to apple tv.
