Great messages need great pictures – projectors in churches
In order to do justice with the impressive biblical content and its miraculous messages about God’s goodness and the power of faith, a new form of mediation is already practiced in many places. To convey the important messages of the biblical narrative, it is worthwhile to intensify texts and songs with radiant, moving images.
While many churches strengthen their relationships with their members through email messages, newsletters, websites and more personalized phone calls, none of these tools are as effective as the powerful connection at actual gatherings.
Images reinforce the spoken word
With the help of projectors, traditional church services become something completely new, since the power of images is enormous and with a good sermon it becomes unforgettable. Anyone who has ever attended a church service in which the speech was accompanied by a projection knows that the spoken word is much more impressive. Church leadership faces many challenges since the demands are changing, not only in spiritual leadership, community consultation or charity, but also in the need to gain the loyalty of its members through consistent positive engagement.
Possible applications of projectors in churches
You will see that the attention of the audience is automatically raised, because images and text in the projection stimulate the imagination. Speeches become livelier and verses or lyrics become clearer. Moreover, projected lyrics are easier to follow.
It is particularly important to attract the attention of older members of the congregation, because readability is very important to them. One way in which churches are confronted in an increasingly technology-oriented world is to improve the visual sophistication of religious programming. This requires the use of more complex audiovisual solutions.
However, audio-visual solutions are just as important as the message – this includes the content of the speech, the quality of speech, but also the quality of the presentation technique.
Selection and installation of video projection technology
The expansion of media technology is not only a gain for worship services, but also for festivals, choir performances and special youth events. A successful commitment is vital for the retention of church members, as well as the increase in the number of members.
The choice of the ideal projector would result from the actual location of the projector in the church, the projection surface and the brightness of the room.
Resolution and brightness of projections
The resolution must be taken into account when selecting the projector. Powerpoint presentations are usually shown in churches. One device with a 4:3 format and a resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA) is sufficient. If you want to watch short films, a higher resolution of 1280 x 720 and a 16:9 format would be necessary.
The brightness of the projectors is also crucial for the success of a presentation. Projectors from 5000 ANSI Lumen upwards are suitable for larger church events. These projectors usually have interchangeable lenses that provide more flexibility in fixed placement. Today, 5,000 lumens is considered the standard for brightness in most areas. These bright projectors can easily produce large, crystal clear images for a community of 100-150 people, regardless of ambient light.
Service and support for video projections in churches
Usually, projectors can be integrated into the church interior in a very discreet way – which does not effect the aesthetics of the room. Gain new parishioners, make yourself be heard, or simply offer your listeners a little revelation – no matter if they are a one-time visitor or permanent members.
