Welcome to Church Logo Gallery, where we blend passion, faith, and design skills to create outstanding church and ministry logos.
One of the basics of branding says it isn’t what you say you are that defines your company, but who your customers say you are. If you want to know what our customers say about us, click on the Testimonials link below and read about our customers experience with Church Logo Gallery.
If your church needs a new church, ministry, youth or children logo you've come to the right place. Church Logo Gallery specializes in church logo and brand design. You'll find a wide variety of pre-designed church and ministry logos that are affordably priced and can be personalized to update the image of your church or ministry in a short amount of time. Don’t see anything that quite fits? Call me - I would love to work with you on a custom design that represents your unique needs.
When you call or place an order, you'll work directly with me. As a business owner I know how important it is to get the job done right. I put everything I've learned about design and branding into every project I work on so that your church will benefit from great brand design. That's the only way I know how to work.
Your project won't be handed off to a junior designer or get crowdsourced to someone on the other side of the globe who has no idea what challenges your church faces. I head up every design project. I want to know who you're trying to reach, and what message you want to reach people with. I take the time to learn more about the culture of your church and community and what resonates with you so we can include all of that into your logo. To be sure, my goal is always to produce a nice design, but there's some strategy involved, too. If it's not just about price - if you really want a logo that speaks to the needs of your church, call me or shoot me an email and we can talk more about helping your church.

Principal | Creative Director
Michael Kern - My Story:
Looking back I can see how God wove talent and faith together, but in college I wrestled between a career in full-time ministry or graphic design. Graphic design became my vocation, but ministry was always an avocation as I worked with Young Life, and a wide variety of youth and church ministries. On the design side, my career took off as a freelance designer with the major advertising agencies in San Diego, while projects for faith based organizations merged faith and design on regular occasions. In 1999 the two were fused when I was brought on as the creative director for a large church marketing company, and 3 years later till the present with Church Logo Gallery.
As principal and creative director of Church Logo Gallery, I work with both clients and select designers to develop solutions that communicate the mission and vision of churches and ministries in a way that’s authentic and compelling.
Since 2009, my work has received over 175 national awards for logo design, and my work has been featured in books and magazines as examples of outstanding logo design. The list of awards and publications can be seen on the right.
