Facebook has added the ability to upload video for your church’s Facebook page cover. This is exciting news because it means that visitors have one additional way to preview your church, aside from your church website. In this article, we’ll walk you through the simple steps to update your Facebook cover with video to have an even better impact in your community.

Recommended Facebook Cover Video Size

The recommended size for the video that will best work with Facebook’s Cover Video requirements is 820 x 462 pixels, which is the optimal size for the space in the Facebook Cover Video.

The video must be between 20 to 90 seconds, and you must trim it before uploading to Facebook. It will not let you upload anything outside of those parameters.

How to Set Up Your Facebook Cover Video

First, hover your Mouse over your current cover image, Change Cover Icon will pop up. Please note that your church page needs to be a business page to have these features. The cover video feature is not available for personal Facebook pages. Then, when you click on Change Cover, you will have the option to Select Video or Upload New Video.
