For Sunday morning sermons, there’s no doubt that displaying the pastor’s key points and scriptures on your screen helps the congregation to follow along. However, your ability to present this content in a way that looks clean and organized will ultimately decide whether it’s beneficial to the message or just plain distracting. I’ve seen countless churches with the capability to display presentations, but who struggle to make it look good. Because of this, I’ve created these simple, easy-to-use sermon slide templates for Keynote, PowerPoint, and ProPresenter. They are fully customizable, so you could easily use these multiple times with just a few adjustments. It’s super easy to change colors, backgrounds, and plug in your content.

Quick Tip: For my normal workflow, I typically prepare my sermon slides in Keynote, export as JPEG images, and then import into ProPresenter. This gives features like various shapes and masking (such as the photo slide), and also keeps continuity when using multiple computers.

    Thanks for these! Really appreciate them! I usually just make slides in PPT and them export them as .jpg images to pro presenter since we have a separate computer in our Y-room for projection. Is this silly? should i look into making Propresenter templates?

  • My pastor makes his slides in Power Point then sends them to me. I then import them into PP5 and adapt them to what I need. This takes a couple of hours on Fridays. I tried the jpg trick but could not get what I needed from the stage displays for the pastor as well as the others using stage displays.

    Thank you for these. I used them Sunday when we had an alternate preaching. It was well received.

    How do you get the fonts into PP5 after downloading them? Also, is there a way to place shapes onto the slides such as the free one shown above?

    Thanks for posting this, it looks fantastic!

    I just showed it to my pastor the other week and he loved it! We currently just have white text on a black background…so this will help us bring things to life a bit more!

    Do you have any more examples that you could post =)

  • Natalie says:

    Thank you for also posting the names of the fonts – half the battle in getting creative is finding the correct font!

  • Nia says:

    Please Help! I’ve downloaded the Sermon Slides and I cannot open them in Propresenter. What am I doing wrong?

  • Nia says:

    Okay!!!! I have successfully downloaded and opened up the woodgrain background. But, I don’t have/see the turquoise circle. Is that something I am supposed to create myself?

    Thanks for your time and consideration!

    Kendall, This is a fantastic template! Thank you! Where can I get more of these templates? This would save me so much time in making my keynotes look great. Thank you for helping pastors be more creative and excel in graphics. Keep up the good work!

    Thank you for all your tips, I’m new in the media team and I really like this page that help others to serve at church the right way

  • Dan says:

    Any recommendations for where to get stock photos for sermons? I would prefer an annual subscription and faith focused with few to no graphic (violent or sexual) images.

  • Nichole says:

    This is absolutely fantastic! However, my church uses the cloud-based software Proclaim rather than ProPresenter because ProPresenter just seemed so much more difficult to learn. I create our sermon slides in Photoshop and then save them as JPEGs before importing them into Proclaim on Sunday mornings. The three ways you’ve provided this sermon slide (Keynote, PowerPoint, ProPresenter) won’t allow me to manipulate the file the way I can in PSD. (sad face)

    I would love more of these! This is so helpful!

  • T.J. Dreyer says:

    These are really helpful, if you have more I could use them! Thanks for sharing

  • Paula says:

    Just found this and I am excited to use them in ProPresenter. Thank you soooooo much! More please!

    I’m creative/media director at my church and found keynote to be the best thing for creating slides. I’ve tried using PhotoShop & Pixelmator. Too many steps in my opinion. I use the masking option VERY often especially when making announcement flyers that are going to be mailed out.
