Easy Worship Video for Any Church
You’ve probably been to a huge church and seen their worship videos on the big screen. It’s pretty impressive. Surely, you think, there’s no way that our church could have that kind of church media. Think again…
Worship videos are no longer the realm of only the big-budgeted megachurches. Even little churches with miniscule media budgets can afford to have great media, including worship videos.
Want to get started with easy worship videos? Here’s how.
1. Have a projector? First off, you’ll need a projector. Most churches own one or more of these devices, also known as PowerPoint projectors. Chances are pretty good that you have one hanging from your ceiling, or mounted in the back.
2. Get worship videos. Now you’ll need some worship videos. These are really easy to find online, but often it’s hard to find affordable worship videos. Some church media providers charge as much as $20 for a single looping worship video. Sharefaith’s entire worship video collection is free for members. The single low price of an annual membership entitles the user to download an unlimited number of worship videos. Since Sharefaith is constantly adding new videos, there is an endless supply of high quality church videos being released every week. Here’s a sample:
(Note: Sharefaith’s high-quality worship loops are available in MP4, WMV, MPEG and HD)
3. Use PowerPoint. Finally, you’ll need a presentation tool. Some churches purchase expensive software such as MediaShout, ProPresenter, or Easy Worship. These programs have extensive functionality, but require a pretty penny to purchase, plus the learning curve of adapting to a new software. This doesn’t exactly fit the “easy” worship moniker that churches need. PowerPoint works just fine for worship, as long as you have ExaltNow. ExaltNow is an inexpensive plugin for PowerPoint that allows you to place text over video and automatically insert worship lyrics. It delivers optimal presentation functionality without breaking the bank.
That’s it. Easy worship videos are possible for any church, of any size, and any budget. The power of exellent media should not be confined only to big churches with money to spend.
In a landmark survey of churches, Sharefaith discovered that the average church media budget is $300. That’s not enough money to buy a PowerPoint projector, let alone a whole collection of worship videos. Thankfully, Sharefaith is priced at a point that makes it totally accessible for a church of any size.
