- Art and Faith Matters
"Art & Faith Matters provides ready-made and bespoke resources for congregations and individuals seeking to use the arts to enrich and express their faith. When the arts are part of a faithful life - corporately and/or individually - they remind us that God's first act in Hebrew scripture is to create. In Christian scripture Jesus uses the ordinary things of this world to express truths about God and God's ultimate reign."
- Christian Reflection Project
The online home of Christian Reflection: A Series in Faith and Ethics, which is published by The Institute for Faith and Learning at Baylor University. Christian Reflection offers reliable guidance in engaging the ethical dimensions of today's world. Its themed articles, inspirational pieces, book reviews, interviews, Christian art, liturgies, and hymns help the Church reintegrate Christian ethical reflection, worship, and art. Free study guides are available on this website to enrich personal or group study.

Christian hymns & Gospel songs - including lyrics, sheet music, audio, pictures, biographies and history - from many denominations
- Engage | The Institute for Youth Ministry
"Issues that circulate through the news media and blogosphere often present important questions about how Christians should think and live. Engage creates a rich dialogue around these questions by bringing the perspectives of youth ministers, volunteer leaders, scholars, and youth to bear on a single topic. Use the short but insightful articles in your youth group, Bible study, youth committee or devotional group, and download the articles and resources that provide incisive questions for jump-starting the conversation."
