If you’re a productivity geek like I am, you know the power of streamlining and simplifying. The good news is, there is at least one place on the web where you can get virtually all of your church media needs taken care of in a single website. Here’s the one website that will revolutionize your church media.
Let me be open with you. I’m not into the whole three-step formula and how-to books about churches and church ministry. It seems a bit artificial and used-car-salesmanish to me. Of course, if there is such a thing as an actual three-step formula to growing a church of ninety million people, I’m all ears. In the real world, though, such things are the stuff of pastoral fantasy and a waste of time. Understanding and applying biblical principles and commands is way more important. Having said all that, I’m about to tell you a how-to tip, but hopefully, it’s one that will work. (And no, it’s not about growing a ninety -million member church…but it might help.)
One trend of worship services in recent years is the use of PowerPoint for worship lyrics in lieu of hymnbooks. More and more churches are using “worship PowerPoints” to project the words to songs. The choice is a good one for a variety of reasons. Here’s what worship PowerPoints are, and how to use them.
Using presentation support media like PowerPoint can be challenging and often intimidating for pastors and worship leaders. Many are worried that they “won’t do it right,” and the PowerPoint could therefore become a distraction. This is a valid concern, but making great PowerPoint presentations is probably not as difficult or time consuming as most pastors think. Here are 10 tips that will help make your PowerPoint (or whatever media presentation software you use) better for your congregation.
You’ve probably read about worship videos, seen a few worship videos, and maybe even downloaded a free worship video background. But let’s ask the question: why use worship videos? Are worship videos worth it? Relevant? Convenient? Cost-effective? Let’s explain some of the reasons why church videos are the way to go for churches today.

It seems that a lot of things that churches do or don’t do are more bandwagon issues than the result of careful, Scriptural thinking. Worship videos are kind of like that. Rather than think about the purpose, meaning, quality, and legitimacy of a given thing, some churches do whatever everyone else is doing, be it their denomination, their favorite celebrity pastor, the megachurch down the road, or even pop culture. We would caution against the bandwagon approach to anything, even worship videos. But the issue of church videos goes beyond mere bandwagon appeal. Using worship videos is just plain smart, for a whole variety of reasons (which we’ll discuss in a future article). Today, we wanted to share with you how popular and how easy it is to use worship videos in church. The explanation behind worship videos helps you realize why churches are using worship videos in higher numbers than ever before.
