Affiliate Disclosure

Our mission is to recommend what matters. We test and evaluate products each year to help you find what you need in some of our articles. Our goal is to save you time, whether you’re looking for everyday Christian products or gifts for loved ones. In other articles, we recommend a Christian bookstore and finding books on Amazon. We also recommend Bible study software. Because of this the government requires that we post this affiliate disclosure.

We strive to be the most trusted Christian recommendation service and work with total independence. We won’t post a recommendation unless our writers and editors have deemed something the best through rigorous reporting and testing.

So let’s talk about affiliate links.

Affiliate Links

Sometimes when we recommend a product, we’ll link to the company’s website using what’s known as an affiliate or referral link. Basically, if you buy a product you found via our link, we get a commission from the vendor as a small “bird dog fee.”

Sometimes that commission is just a few dollars; sometimes, it’s a little more. Sometimes it’s a one-time commission; sometimes, it’s a rolling commission — so if you sign up for a monthly subscription service, we might get a slice of that monthly fee.

But here’s the important thing — that referral doesn’t cost you a penny. The entire commission comes out of the vendor’s pocket, not yours.

And we’ll never recommend a product simply because it pays us a commission because that would be sleazy, right?

So we’ll only recommend products we’ve personally used or highly recommended by trusted peers. (After all, if we only recommended products we’re using ourselves right now, we’d be doing you a disservice because there is a lot of church equipment that is a great fit when you’re starting but not when your church is bigger, like ours. Make sense?)

So assume when you see a link to Amazon, or another store, that it is an affiliate link.

All good? Great!
