We are launching something new...
Visual Media Church and our Founder/President James Adams are excited to be working on something new. We are not going to reveal everything about what is coming next but we are going to say a little about what to expect.
For a while now there has been a lack of creditable christian voices giving guidance to church communications and media people. Yes we know there are lots of people out there sharing tips, tricks, and resources but we want to bring some voices that aren’t always trying to sell you a product, and voices that still are working in churches just like you, not ‘used to’ work in a church.
This new adventure is about church first, business second. It is about credibility, research, years of of experience solving problems that church communicators face everyday. Oh and it’s going to be free.
It can be challenging when your ministry has the resources and vacancy to create positions, whether in staff or serving capacities, but you don’t know where to begin or who to look for when considering people to join your team.
Here is our list for the best church conferences for you to check out to be inspired, learn from, and leave refreshed as a church communicator.
Speaking candidly, I like to think of myself as a decently self-aware communicator. I’m extroverted, I enjoy working with others, and I pay attention to things happening beneath the surface.
While creating things for church, much of the time we’re looking at screens: our phone screen, our desktop, our iPads, ProPresenter, a screen in the auditorium. This fact isn’t uncommon to those around us; today, screen time is increasing at a more rapid rate than ever before.
Websites used to be really expensive and labor intensive, what used to cost a church $20,000 now only costs $1000.
Working in the media industry can be challenging for more than one reason, but one thing I’ve found particularly striking is this: while you’re mass-communicating a message that merits being heard so loudly, the medium and methods by which you create these messages in themselves may not seem loud.
How do we create images that are distinct and captivating, and will be unique among the other thousands we look at during our days?
A lot of things around us these days function by trying to grab and then hold our attention. Certainly some of these things deserve our attention more or less than others but that’s us—the viewers’— decision to make.
Let’s get right to it, across Instagram these days, it’s widely understood that people often post hoping to receive high amounts of likes and comments.
