    • We do not use videos in our services or in our church

      We have no video equipment (projector, screen, monitors or internet access) in our sanctuary

    • I don’t use videos in my church and school websites because I don’t know how to do a video, let alone how to place it in my website. I know it sounds strange for what I am saying, but that is the truth. My obstacles are the lack of knowledge of using these technologies. Both church and school are online operations, and I feel very limited. Everything on my websites is only text.

    • 1. How is your organization currently using video?
      We use videos to advertise or promote concerts, services or special events like VBS. Some of our speakers also include videos in their presentations.
      2. When it comes to using video to advance your mission, what is your biggest challenge or obstacle?
      Dealing with copyright regulations in reproducing videos to use in services or activities or on the website can be a challenge. There’s been some interest in developing our own AV projects but we haven’t gone further than using powerpoint at this point.

    • We do not video our services at this time, but that’s not to say we won’t be doing so in the future. Like many small, rural congregation, we’re slow to adapt to technology; in fact, we have just launched our very first website, thanks to YOUR excellent support! So, give us time to catch up! We’ll get there eventually!

    • I think I answered the questions based on the wrong part of video’s… Let me try again.
      1. Use of Video: Song slides, occasional video clips in sermons, occasional PowerPoint with sermons
      2. Challenge/Obstacle: Money for better equipment and time/coordination to organize worship better and plan for appropriate video clips, PowerPoint, images, etc.
