There really isn't a heck of a lot of difference until you start getting into the 'kids' portables- like what you see sold at Target/Wal-Mart orTtoys-r-us. The build quality can be horrible though compared to a 'regular' portable from Best Buy, etc. Do a little poking around in the stores where you can actually view the device output to a TV. I guarantee it won't be that tough to find one for your church folks.
