1. New Bestselling Book - "Raised To Stay"

This new book called "Raised to Stay: Persevering in Ministry When You Have a Million Reasons to Walk Away" is something I would recommend for anyone in ministry. The author, Natalie Runion, shares insights from many years of experience in ministry, and encouragement for those dealing with all kinds of church hurt and struggling with burning out.

The wisdom in this book encourages Christians and ministers to continue to love God and love the Church, while also healing from past hurts or current struggles with people and their faith.

Give this book as a gift to inspire and bring hope to those currently in ministry to stay the course of their calling.

2. Audible Gift Membership

In the busyness of life, it can be difficult to make the time to sit and read, or to take the time to continue developing your leadership skills and learning in your spare time.

Why not gift a membership for audiobooks where they can listen on the go, and choose what they're interested in?

As a young mom also in ministry, listening to audiobooks has been a great way to listen to Bible teachers, studies, and encouragement or inspirational stories that I wouldn't have taken the time to read otherwise. 

This would be a great gift for a busy person who may not invest in it for themselves, but would appreciate the thoughtfulness and be more likely to use it if they have access to it.

Audible Gift Memberships are available in 1 month, 3 month, 6 month or 12 subscriptions.

3. Contigo Autoseal Water Bottle

Don't forget to hydrate! This is my favorite water bottle to take along with me for worship team practices and to keep with me during church services.

I love that it's sealed and doesn't spill, because I've accidentally knocked it over multiple times.

My go-to color is black to blend in with the stage and to not stand out and be a distraction.

It really is the little things that can make a big difference in your routine. As water bottles go, this is a great one!

4. Multi-tool Pliers and Pocket Knife

Keeping a set of multitool pliers around will come in handy more than you think! There are so many uses for these and it's small enough to not take up much room in a gig bag or storage room. 

Since I play guitar, I've had small multitool pliers in my guitar case for cutting guitar strings when changing them. But you can use them for many things that come up while setting up the stage, or unpackaging new equipment.

These would be a practical gift that keeps on giving. Several small things could be put together in a gift basket or as a stocking stuffer.

Shop "Multitool Pliers" on Amazon:






5. Burt's Bee's Hand Salve

Wow! This natural beeswax hand salve is the unsung hero for dry chapped skin, especially in the winter. When lotions don't cut it, this heals dry skin quickly and has become my favorite way to moisturize.

Another great gift that's practical and thoughtful, and will be put to good use!

Shop "Burts Bees Hand Salve" on Amazon:






6. Audio Technica Headphones

Who doesn't love new tech gear? These professional studio quality headphones are noise cancelling and great for live audio as well.

I've used these for recordings podcasts, filming video interviews, and also in our sound booth at church and for our drummer to hear better on stage.

This brand is quality without the price tag of others that cost twice as much.

These headphones would be a great gift for a worship leader who spends time planning setlists and working with live or recorded audio.


Shop "Audio Technica Headphones" on Amazon:






7. Earbuds for In-Ear Monitors

Also on the tech side of things, these earbuds are super affordable and have great clear audio quality to be used on stage for in-ear monitors.

I had more expensive ones for years, and then switched to using this kind after a musician friend told me about them.

Now I recommend them to my whole team and share the link with other musicians all the time.

Highly recommend!

Shop "Earbuds for In-Ears" on Amazon:






8. Throat Coat Tea

A year round therapy for vocalists who sing or speak alot, is Throat Coat tea. It comes in a variety of flavors, and would be a good gift paired with a mug and even some throat drops. 

It would make a nice care package or immune boosting gift in the winter/spring season. 


Shop "Throat Coat Tea" on Amazon:






9. Xlear Nasal Spray

Add this natural saline spray as a preventative way to clear the sinuses and keep airways clear. Definitely helpful for singers and speakers when duty calls but you're not feeling your best. 

This was recommended by my chiropractor and I've used it to help with minor seasonal allergies or congestion.

It works right away and lasts all day!

Shop "Xlear Nasal Spray" on Amazon:






10. Blue Light Blocking Glasses

These glasses would work well to help protecting eyes while spending alot of times on screens, communicating through emails and scheduling sites for teams of volunteers.

Again, it's the little things, and these could make a difference in preventing headaches and eye strain over time.

I've used these on video calls for meetings as well, anytime I will be looking at a screen for an extended period of time.

Bonus Idea: Thank You Card

Hope you found this list of gift ideas for worship leaders helpful.

Don't underestimate the power of kind words, and a handwritten note of gratitude for those you love and appreciate.

As a bonus idea, a simple thank you card goes a long way with encouraging the worship leader in your life.

Remind them that the work they do is important and uplift them in the calling as they faithfully serve the Lord in ministry.
