The ideal sermons plugin for WordPress is being built.
Maximize your message.
Imagine a sermons plugin for WordPress that blends beautifully with any theme, that does
everything you want and that's so easy it's a joy.
Making the Best Sermons WordPress Plugin
WP Sermons is a project by the maker of ChurchThemes.com.
Our experience helping thousands of churches build great websites is being used to create the
premier WordPress plugin for sermons.
This sermons plugin for WordPress will be comprehensive, yet easy to use.
WP Sermons will help your church reach more people.
The plugin's Quick Start Wizard, sermons importer and real-time visual customization will help get
your new sermon archive up and running beautifully in a snap.
And you'll be able to do this before buying so you can see how you like it on your own website.
WP Sermons will offer a lot of flexibility for matching colors, fonts, styles and layouts to any WordPress

Today is Cyber Monday at ChurchThemes.com. We'll have a converter for sermons so you can start your site there (see the Sermons Guide) and easily move to WP Sermons when it's ready. A lot of WP Sermons is being based on what we've done with the Church Content plugin at ChurchThemes.com so you'll be going from great to exceptional.
We're exploring how we can make WP Sermons more easily available to churches in developing countries, church plants and struggling churches. In other words, extra savings on top of the standard discount for paying annually versus monthly.
We are particularly concerned with how some of the most useful technology is essentially only available to churches in economically prosperous nations. Have an idea? Send it.
We like our WordPress admin area to look consistent. Plugins often present their screens in a style very different from WordPress itself. That's #NoBueno in our book. The WP Sermons admin screens compliment WordPress rather than fight against it. We're going the extra mile to apply user color scheme choices as well.
We're often asked when WP Sermons will be available. That's hard to say since we are more focused on getting it right than getting it out. The official release date for WP Sermons is "when it's done", as a famous software engineer once said about their highly-anticipated product.
Thank you all for the interest you have expressed in WP Sermons. That's our fuel and we appreciate it.
WP Sermons, LLC has acquired ChurchWP.net, a website dating back to 2013, from Frugal Fox Design. This gives us brand and SEO advanages for ChurchWP.com, a domain received from our sister-company ChurchThemes.com in January. The two sites will be merged when our sermons plugin launches. #GettingReady
Custom Types and Feed Builder are two features we're particularly excited about. A church just asked if WP Sermons will let them make a podcast highlighting interviews and testimonies, separate from a sermons podcast.
They will be able to make a custom type for interview and another for testimony. Each will have an archive similar to the main sermon archive. Feed Builder will let them combine interviews and testimonies into a single podcast feed.
We're so grateful for the encouragement we've received about developing WP Sermons.
There is a widely used sermons WordPress plugin that has changed ownership several times over the years. The original maker of it just let us know how excited they are about WP Sermons, saying it looks something like what they had dreamed of making. We intend to work together on testing WP Sermons and in particular the tool for converting data from other sermons plugins.
Happy Independence Day! We're grateful that we are free to do the kind of work we do in the United States where, as Laura Ingalls Wilder put it, God is America's King.
We've chosen CMB2 as our fields library. Documentation is sufficient and capabilities are wide. Very stable. We intend to share a settings page screenshot shortly.
We're toying with Carbon Fields for the plugin's settings screen. CMB2 is also an option. The neat thing about these libraries is that they work for both settings screens and meta boxes (custom sermon fields) so hopefully we can use one or the other instead of rolling our own. It would make for faster development.
We're a privacy-first company. From today and onward, we're blocking Google's FLoC on our website. It's worth familiarizing yourself with FLoC and considering a more respectful browser if you're using Chrome. See Google Alternatives.
Our Feature Tour page is coming along. A sticky shortcuts sidebar stays in view as you scroll and highlights the current section. A description and at least one screenshot will be shown for each feature. You can click to enlarge an image. This update is using the very same carousel and lightbox.
Here's a peek at tentative pricing for the plugin. There will be yearly and monthly options. Yearly will have a discount greater than 20%. Bulk pricing will kick in for agencies after three sites at only $65/year per site (or $7/mo each). Click below to enlarge.
The disastrous arctic weather in Texas is finally subsiding. Things have been rough, though we were fortunate to not lose power ourselves. We're getting back to work.
We're banking with Mercury after Azlo announced its closure. An online account with virtual debit cards can be setup in minutes. No driving, no call. #TheFuture
We renamed Ready Church Sites to ChurchWP.com (see announcement on January 12).
It's a new year and we're glad to announce that WP Sermons, LLC is 100% funded for continuing development of the plugin 2021.
We switched hosting as not to keep our eggs in the same infrastructure basket as ChurchThemes.com. We're rockin' Linode via RunCloud from Toronto now. Eventually the whole site will be cached and served by Cloudflare's global CDN.
We will be making several demo sites with popular WordPress themes to show what WP Sermons is capable of. These demo sites will be available as importable starter sites at Ready Church SitesChurchWP.com. #WasteNothing
Christmas is over and it's the New Year. We've doubled down on our resolve to do one thing and do it well (that one thing being WP Sermons, of course). Thank you for following us on this journey. #VeryExcited
We're giving Freemius serious consideration for subscription management, licensing and update delivery. A lot depends on whether or not they can automate the sales tax exemption process. If they can, we'll be able to shift extra time from business tasks to plugin development.
Oh, just a little laptop art for motivation. Another reads, "Do one thing and do it well." That one thing is of course a reference to WP Sermons, a WordPress plugin with a singular purpose.
Accessibility is a priority for WP Sermons with both the website and the plugin. Lighthouse is a very helpful in-browser development tool. It's great to see that Google is scoring accessibility in addition to performance.
