Live Streaming Your Worship Service

I’ve started a new series of videos on Live Streaming Your Worship Service on my youtube channel.  It’s going to cover a lot of the nuts and bolts of how to successfully stream your church service online. Our streaming has been fairly successful with an average of 500 unique IP addresses streaming our service each week.  I hear quite often from people who can’t make it to church for one reason or another, older folks who are no longer mobile, or even a business man who was out of town about how helpful it was for them to be able to tune in and feel like they are still a part of the church.

This first video covers a general overview of where to start and some best practice for streaming.

Free Worship backgrounds – Donate yours!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any free worship backgrounds.  I’ve got a few in the works I hope to post soon.  In the mean time, if you have any backgrounds that you have made and would like to share for free with people around the world, let me know and I’ll post them here.  Leave a comment and I’ll send you my email address to send them to and I’ll post a collection of donated backgrounds here.
