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.

Canon SELPHY CP910 Black Portable Wireless Compact Photo Color Printer:  http://amzn.to/160nEUq – Make your own Photo Booth with this cool portable printer!

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera : http://amzn.to/12Fn7Vu – A must have for all youth ministries.  Whats more hipster than a old school print camera.  We used this for a jr.youth event and it was a huge hit.

PLAY X STORE® LED Light Up Illuminating 3ft 8pin USB Charging / Data Sync Cable fits iphone 5/5s : http://amzn.to/1zGgs8L -We all need cables.

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.

Amazon FireHD 7: http://amzn.to/1w7VwqN – A poor mans iPad mini.  This is worth it if you need a device to read books on.


What are some things that you would add to this list?   What are some tech toys that you discovered in 2014 that you love?
