I work in a church and am looking for some good presentation software for slides and worship, what are my options?
Well Steven, There are a lot of options! I have in the past used MediaShout 3, 3.5 (Windows) and ProPresenter 4 (MAC). Both of those have served me well.However both come with limitations due to cost and being tied to one OS. I recently heard about a new one called Proclaim, it hasn't been released yet, but it should be coming out very soon. It is a web based Presentation software so it runs correctly on either OS and people can work on it throughout the week rather than when they are sitting in front of the computer with the presentation software.
You can check out their software here! http://proclaimonline.com. Unlike all other church presentation software systems, this one will allow pastors, worship leaders, and worship team members to all access and add to the same presentation before it’s presented, and then use the same application to run the presentation during the service.
To add to the excitement of the release of Proclaim, they are giving away $25,000 in worship resources in The Great Worship Resource Giveaway. They are going to have 100’s of winners of some of the best worship resources on the market. The giveaway is located on the Proclaim home page http://proclaimonline.com where you will see how to enter. You can also see all the prize partners there, listing out some great resources from companies like Planning Center Online, Graceway Media, Worship Leader Magazine, Centerline Media, Musicademy, Clover Sites, Christian Musician Summit, Luna Guitars, National Worship Leader Conference, and prizes from many more.
I’m excited about this new product Proclaim. You can see a video of the software on their site which gives a quick detail of how it will help worship leaders and ministry teams. Visit http://proclaimonline.com to see the video, and enter ‘The $25,000 Great Worship Resource Giveaway’.
