Today, we’re going to take a look at using video specifically in ministry to encourage, connect, and inspire your congregation as well as assist your worship team in learning their music. Video is perhaps one of the very best tools to share new music and inspire people in and beyond your church. So many of us regularly watch and listen to YouTube playlists as another option for entertainment.

YouTube is also a great help to worship leaders (free ebook on using YouTube in ministry).

 

CREATING UNIQUE WORSHIP VIDEOS

  • C4 Churchin Canada has taken worship ministry a step further by writing their own worship songs and producing their own videos to teach and share this music with their congregation.
  • C4’s worship leader, Chris Vacher,recently wrote an article for CTT on the most beneficial apps for worship leaders, then shared this great new video with us.


Overall, I believe a production like this has lots of staying power, from showing people what your church is like to those who might see the video but not attend, to teaching people new songs. Whether you have a larger budget for video production like C4 Church, or a smaller budget, video can be used to teach new music and encourage worship participation. Lastly, the video can be used in many different ways via social media to enhance your church’s online presence and increase your church’s reach.

It’s hard to believe it, but ISC 2017 is history. What an amazing conference! Everyone had a big smile on their face as they left the Crystal Ballroom whether they won a big prize or not. The real prize was knowledge and new friendships and the incredible time of praise and worship that everyone experienced. As we all prepare to go home to our individual places of ministry, may God bless each one represented here and help them to implement what they have learned during our time together. Please consider joining us for the 30th anniversary of ISC next year in Memphis. You can visit shelbysystems.com/isc to learn more.
