The Christian Resource Center was founded by Carlton Harrison and Dennis Somers who have each worked in Christian publishing for more than twenty-five years. Using their expertise and relationships with Christian publishers, they are able to buy in bulk and pass the savings on to you. They specialize in church orders for Vacation Bible School , Sunday School Children’s Church curriculum and materials, as well as Children’s Bibles. In addition to other publishing companies, they deal extensively with Group, David C. Cook, Zondervan, Standard, and Gospel Light.
Everything they sell is below the publisher’s catalog price. What is more, they always have free ground shipping with no minimum to buy. In other words, if you were in a crunch for your VBS and you only needed three items, you could order from the Christian Resource Center and still receive free ground shipping. Additionally, they can have your materials shipped to you in most cases two days but no more than four or five if you live on the West Coast. With their 30 day billing, your satisfaction is guaranteed. It is easy to see how they are able to save churches and ministries in the United States over $400,000 a year!
While they do have a website (for individual orders only), they are dedicated to a personal customer service where they can talk with those who are ministering to children in the local church. They can send you a catalog of whatever you are looking for that will show you the catalog price alongside their discounted price making comparisons easy. With their commitment to helping children’s ministries be better stewards of their budgets, Christian Resource Center is most certainly worth looking into for your next VBS or Sunday School or Children’s Church curriculum purchase.
When you do contact them at 1-800-476-0118 tell them you read about their ministry here at Ministry to Children.
