ConseCrate curates & creates gifts for ministers! Owned & operated by ELCA pastor, Rev. Dr. Ruth E. Hetland, ConseCrate began as a slightly irreverent, fun, and encouraging subscription box for ministers in 2020. ( Today, we send out over 500 ConseCrates to ministers from many different denominations around the world each month. We curate items from creative ministers and other local artists and small businesses.

We especially like to feature items that are sustainable and good for the earth. Spiritual directors, coaches, travel companies, and authors share special offers and exclusive discounts with our subscribers every month. We also make one-time boxes for occasions such as ordinations, clergy anniversaries, seminary graduation, plus the “Elevate” ConseCrate which is perfect for encouragement during a rough patch in ministry; the “Contemplate” ConseCrate – designed for those in discernment, and other boxes for the various seasons of life and liturgy. If you are in need of fun gifts for Conferences, retreats, & assemblies, we’ve got you!

We understand life in ministry and would love to make a ConseCrate for you! In 2022 we added a huge Etsy store ( and most recently our own e-commerce store ( with shirts, cups, bags, and other items designed exclusively for progressive clergy.
