As many of you, at Living Water CRC, we've been doing a live streaming for the past few months. Here's an example of how we're doing live streaming. I'd love to share and learn from other church leaders and tech/production ministry folks on how we're each doing online/live streaming.
We're currently doing 100% remote but a hybrid model where our pastor is leading live and preaching live. We are pre-recording announcements, prayers and praise songs. In addition, we're including visual elements like borders/frames and lower-thirds to enhance the worship. We also including interactive elements where we are texting and commenting on the stream during our "greeting/fellowship" time. Lastly, we encourage our members to join the Zoom room to worship together and as we all watch the live stream.
In addition to the live presentation of the pastor, Zoom and the interactive greeting/texting has been an important element to make the worship feel in the moment and includes a level of urgency and participation.
How is your church doing live streaming? What do you like or don't like about how we're doing live streaming? Do you have any questions on how to do live streaming for your church? Wed love to share and learn from you.
