How It Works

Illustration Exchange offers easy access to a growing collection of sermon illustrations that are fresh, relevant and practical. The site is updated daily with new submissions from the staff and our contributing members. If you'd like to join our active community, please take a minute to read more about our membership options below.


After a free 7-day trial, subscribers pay as little as $7.49 per month for access. If you enjoy your trial period and wish to continue, simply do nothing and your membership will renew automatically. If you find our site's not for you, you may cancel at any time. As a special bonus, subscribers receive a free digital copy of Dr. Mitchell Dillon's "Beyond Earthbound Dreams" just for signing up!


In general, contributors are writers who upload illustrations to our site from their own books, articles, blogs, etc. Contributors receive 30 days access to our site in exchange for each approved submission. We recommend the contributor membership for those who've accumulated a large body of work that they would like to share, or for those who'd like to promote their published materials.

A Message From the Founder

I am passionate about good illustrative material, but as a pastor and Bible teacher, I know how challenging it can be to find it. In order to make your search easier, I have established Illustration Exchange, a website ministry that is dedicated to producing illustrations that are fresh, relevant, practical, and easy to access.

I have spent nearly thirty years serving those I shepherded by working hard to produce messages that were as relevant and interesting as possible. It is now my privilege, through this website, to serve you, the shepherds and teachers. If Illustration Exchange improves the quality of your messages while affording you more time to serve people, then my joy will be multiplied many times over.

Your Fellow Messenger,
Dr. Mitchell Dillon
