Studio lighting advice

If I could get some advice here that would be great! I'm looking at purchasing a studio lighting set. This is for a church/missions project so it needs to be reasonable, but I also don't want to compromise too much quality. I feel comfortable doing outdoor portraits but I have zero experience with studio lighting. If you were starting out what would you recommend as the "must haves"?

2 lights, stands, umbrellas and a trigger to sync lights and camera, that would be the basics, sorry I can't recommend an actual set as I think some brands here and there may be different, I have multiblitz lights and they work fine, have used the same set for 15yrs, maybe more :-)

Just found this thread. I was looking at home studio lighting. Do you end up buying any? And if so, did you like it?
