Ways To Use Video In Ministry

One of the things I decided on this past year was that I was not going to let money (or lack thereof) stand in the way of using technology in ministry.

One key principle we do ministry by is using technology to enhance ministry. And I mean enhance. Technology is just a tool and should never replace but should enhance your ministry time.

Several ways we use video in our meetings are:
  • Video clips from movies that introduce concepts or aha moments.
  • Video promos for series.
  • Video Announcements.
  • Countdown Videos for the night.
  • Monthly Ministry Promo video's
  • Creative video's for meetings.

When I started, I didn't have a fancy camera with fancy editing software. (Of course I still don't have that either.) But again, I did not let that get in the way. Our videos have gotten everything from laughs to tears and all in between. They are ways to bring creativity into your ministry and meetings.

You can check out many of the videos we have used in our meetings at my Youtube site.

Lemme know when you figure out how to not let money get in the way of ministry. I wanna share it with my church's budget committee. ;)
