We’re a team of Christian Graphic Designers, committed to fulfilling the Great Commission. In addition to spreading the gospel in America and Africa, we have a mission to equip today’s and tomorrows disciples with impactful Christian literature. Our goal is to provide high quality tools to empower your outreach programs to your local community and around the world.
We began as a small print shop back in 2005. Several years later we transitioned to providing our printing services exclusively to churches and ministries around the country.
We then saw how the funeral/memorial market was being taking advantage of by niche printing companies and decided to take action. DisciplePress exists to provide a high quality service for a low price. We believe no one should be taken advantage of during their time of need. We strive to make the process as easy and painless as possible, while moving quickly to ensure your purchase arrives on time for your service.
We understand how important it is that the product you receive is of top notch quality. We have some of the best equipment on the market to ensure the highest quality prints.
What is a Funeral Program?
The funeral program (sometimes called a funeral obituary program, funeral brochure, funeral pamphlet or funeral order of service) is the printed program that is given out at funeral services or memorial services that outlines the funeral or memorial service and summarizes the life achievements of your loved one. Funeral programs and memorial programs can also be sent electronically, through email or posted to social media. Funeral programs can also be mailed to those who cannot attend the funeral service.
Funeral programs contain what is called an obituary. Funeral obituaries are life stories, accomplishments and public notifications about recently deceased people and they may have several different versions. While a newspaper obituary might be short and focused on survivors and funeral service information, the obituary in the funeral program can be longer and tell a more detailed story. It is the centerpiece of the funeral program, which can serve as a very informative keepsake about a person’s life and also about the final services.
Funeral Programs normally contain the following:
- Funeral Program cover photo, name, birth/passing date, funeral service location/dates/time.
- Funeral Program Order of Service
- Funeral Poems, scriptures, pallbearers, acknowledgments, etc.
- Memorial Photo collages
Funeral Programs are usually laid out as follows:
- Funeral Program Front Cover (usually contains a photo, name, dates and service location)
- Funeral Program Inside Left (usually contains the obituary)
- Funeral Program Inside Right (usually contains order of service)
- Funeral Program Back Cover (usually contains poems, pallbearers, acknowledgments, photos, etc.)
Depending on the size and number of pages you select for your funeral program there will be room for tributes, photo collages and anything else you may want your funeral program to contain. All our funeral programs are completely customizable, so you can add or remove anything you want from the funeral program template.
Our Ministry Core Beliefs:
DisciplePress is a ministry that works with all Bible-believing Christian churches that embrace traditional Christian theology. We believe that:
•There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. God is all powerful and all knowing; and His perfect knowledge extends to all things, past, present, and future, including the future decisions of His free creatures. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being. (Matthew 28:19),(Phil 2:5-8).
•Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross He made provision for the redemption of men from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, fully God, fully man, in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever present Lord. (Romans 5:8-9), (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
•The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation. (2 Timothy 3:16-17), (2 Peter 1:20-21).
•All people sin and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) and will face eternal separation from God unless they come into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17). Salvation is a free gift from God (Ephesians 2:8-9) that can only be received by faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12, Galatians 2:16).
•It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations. The new birth of man’s spirit by God’s Holy Spirit means the birth of love for others. Missionary effort on the part of all rests thus upon a spiritual necessity of the regenerate life, and is expressly and repeatedly commanded in the teachings of Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ has commanded the preaching of the gospel to all nations. It is the duty of every child of God to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by verbal witness undergirded by a Christian lifestyle, and by other methods in harmony with the gospel of Christ. (Matthew 28:18-20), (Acts 1:8)
•God’s people are called to holiness in all aspects of life (Galatians 5:22-25), with the goal of being conformed to the image of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Romans 8:29).
