Many of you already know that recording short videos and posting them online and/or using them in email newsletters to your church members is a great way to connect with people and share your vision and mission. 

Using video messages in email newsletters can be a wonderful way to draw people in – and can have a powerful effect on how your members and visitors perceive your influence at your church.

BombBomb.com, one of our valued site sponsors, recently conducted a webinar that offered five valuable tips for using video in general. For lots of folks, fear of speaking in front of a camera is the number one reason they never do it. But once you’ve overcome your fear, you still might have questions such as these:

  • How long should my videos be?
  • I’m intimidated, how do I get started?
  • Should I invest money in expensive equipment?
  • How should I record an interview?
  • Recommended video editing software?
  • What’s the best background to record myself over?
  • Should I be sitting or standing in my video?

The webinar lasts about an hour, and is well worth your time to learn the answers to the questions above in order to make use of this powerful medium to share your vision and mission of what your church is all about, what God is placing on your heart for ministry, tips on how to reach out to non-believers, etc.
