Since 2021 more and more Churches are spreading their message worldwide due to the pandemic. It is so easy to place your message online with very little cost. If you have a Christian Church and would like to have an on-line presents, please contact me and we will sit down and go over your website/recording needs.
Please read the following information so you will have an idea, of what to expect. You must provide me with your budget before any process gets started. If I don’t know how much you can spend, then I am limited to what I can suggest. After a decision is made and you are ready to proceed, then I will meet with you via Zoom. Recording/Audio equipment, has evolved to the point that anyone can record on a professional level, using a small to modest budget. The biggest hurdle that many Churches face, is getting volunteers willing to spend their time, to learn the basics of audio/video recording as well as the programs associated with producing the finial product.
In 2021, most Churches may feel pressured into streaming their services live. The truth is, if your congregation is less then 350 members, it may not be the best use of Gods money to invest in this type of set up. The average cost of streaming professional video in large Churches, is close to $12,000 for a basic two camera setup. You will need dedicated members who are willing to invest their time, and well as their willingness to learn how to use the audio/video equipment and the audio/video editing software. You will need to have internet services that you can hard-wire your computers into, to get the best video quality.
Many Churches use what is referred to as a “Delayed Online Presence” and it is very cost efficient. You do not need internet service and your message can still be seen worldwide. By using this method, you can use any smart phone or tablet that can shoot videos. Once you record the video, you can use Camtasia software to separate the audio from the video, then use Reaper to mix and master the audio to meet the requirements for YouTube.
Once the audio has been mastered, you simply add it back into the video and render it to a mp4 format using Camtasia. This format can now be uploaded to Facebook, YouTube or Twitter. The cost for Reaper is around $89.00. The cost for Camtasia is $249.00. Since many people already have smart phones or tablets, it is simple to use these devices set on tripods, to capture your video, as well as your audio.
I have been blessed to work with my Brothers and Sisters in Christ from small Country Churches, to Congregations that run into the thousands. I do audio and video consulting worldwide and I do this simply to help build the Body of Christ. I always adhere to your time zone, not mine. You are the client per say; and I am the service provider. This service is 100% free and I have no affiliate links to the equipment I recommend. I recommend it, because I use it or have worked closely with others who use it as well. You can reserve your initial date and time by clicking here and select “Church Ministries” from the services offered. I know that sometimes “life happens” and if we need to reschedule, it’s not a problem. I look forward to working with you! YBIC, Dana.
