Posted on June 9th, 2011 by adamdiehl

This tip comes from Jaime Brown of www.worthilymagnify.com.

Ideally, you’re prepared enough you don’t even need a music stand. But if it makes you feel comfortable to have it there “just in case” – do it reasonably. Like this video explains:

Another tip that might help is simply to keep your music stand flatter rather than aimed at your face. This also limits the visual barrier between you and the congregation.

The Extra “Kick.”

Posted on March 31st, 2010 by adamdiehl

Are you stressin’ out looking for a “kick” for your Easter service? If you have a projection system, videos can help. There are websites that sell videos for churches – usually for $20 or less. My two favorite sources are www.ignitermedia.com and www.sermonspice.com. The latter is a “dealer” of sorts for several companies that make videos.

Here are a few of my favorites:

This is a powerful opening for any Easter service. It made me cry a little bit — I think we’re going to use this one at my church this weekend. “Come Awake.”

Here’s one of the most popular Easter videos ever, from my perspective. “Sunday’s Comin’”

If you’re a family oriented church, and looking for a funny Easter moment – this may be the way to go.
