The volunteers who work with your presentation software are going to have varying levels of technical expertise.

Worship software can seem complex to those who don't regularly use it, so some advocate for staff to do most of the heavy lifting and give the simple task of running it to volunteers.

The landscape of worship is ever-evolving as new technologies play an innovative role in the modern church. One such technology is the use of music software and MultiTracks in worship.

One of the most important steps in creating a good sounding mix before a service or performance is to do a thorough sound check. And one of the best ways to practice for live mixing is to use a virtual sound check system. Early virtual sound check tools were very technical and difficult to setup or use. Today it is very common to see virtual sound check tools built into a digital mixing console or easily integrated with software on a computer.

The church bulletin plays a vital role in making visitors feel welcome and members feel connected to the life of the church.

Like with any other form of outreach, you want to make this impression count.
