Coronavirus: It’s Okay To Not Be Perfect

The narrative in many many Facebook groups concerning streaming has been like this:

“My stream might not work if you stream so you shouldn’t do it because I have a higher production quality than you do.” 🤦‍♂️

“If you can’t do it perfect you shouldn’t do it at all.” 🤦‍♂️

“If you use a cell phone people will just go watch somewhere else.” 🤦‍♂️ What?!

I’d like to remind everyone that you’re not doing it for the highest production quality, best camera shot, and greatest color grade. You’re doing it for Jesus. As people involved in the production side of things, we often get too attached and think too highly of ourselves. We start to think that people care more about the production than the message which isn’t true. Ask any filmmaker and they will tell you story > production. The best part? We already have the story!

No matter what happens this weekend and during the weekends to come remember this: It may not be the highest quality, it may not be better than the church down the street, and it probably won’t turn out how you planned but as long as you’re doing it for Jesus and allowing congregants that otherwise wouldn’t be able to be apart of church join in, it’s all worth it.

Preparing for Coronavirus: Streaming and Your Church

In the midst of the latest Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) epidemic, commonly called Coronavirus, many governments, churches, and individuals have decided to cancel and even ban large group meetings. Many churches are underprepared and do not have contingency plans in place for such scenarios. Some churches have opted for going online for the next few weeks in order to reduce the potential of further virus spread and some have been required to do so by their respective governments. However, many churches, especially in rural areas, have not yet purchased and set up the needed video infrastructure to stream live. In this post, we are going to discuss there low-to-no budget options for streaming your church services.
