Worship Summit Live is a day of educational content focused on technical training with the world’s leading experts on worship technology. This year the event features speakers such as Jake Gosselin, the CEO of Church Front, Seth Haberman, the Digital Pastor, and Paul Richards, the Chief Streaming Officer at StreamGeeks. This free to attend event has been put together by Paul Richards, the Author of Helping Your Church Live Stream, a book that is available for free here.
The first Worship Summit happened in early 2020, before COVID-19 shut down in-person worship ceremonies for churches around the world. Since then, Worship Summit Live has been an amazing place for volunteers, pastors, and worship leaders to increase their skills in live streaming and video production. “After reviewing the surveys from our Worship Summit’s attendees, it became immediately clear that our audience wants technical training on a variety of topics regarding live streaming worship services,” says event organizer Paul Richards.
An upcoming Worship Summit features sessions such as “How to make a Better Worship Experience Online,” “Customizing OBS for Worship Streaming,” and “Cinematic vs Television Style Live Streaming.” The Worship Summit event also features a Zoom video conferencing area where attendees can network, voice their opinions and get questions answered from church leaders who are speaking at the event.
The Worship Summit has become so popular that multiple live streaming equipment vendors are using the platform as a space to make new products launches. PTZOptics is a company involved with the event that makes live streaming cameras which are ideal for worship spaces. This year, a new PTZ joystick product announcement is expected to be popular regarding its ability to make live streaming technology easier to operate for church volunteers.
Michael Begeman, The Church of Conscious Harmony, in Austin, Texas says “We’ve discovered during COVID that our community is much larger and more far-flung than we ever knew, so we feel the need to keep everyone included…” Begemen was a speaker at the third Worship Summit where he talked about how his church combines live streaming with Zoom video conference sessions. For many Worship Summit attendees, the event has become a place to collaborate with other churches and learn in an online community setting.
Paul Richards also offers a free online course on Udemy to help assist with training volunteers and church media professionals. You can take the free Worship Course on Udemy and share it with your team. The online course is designed to help your team become more familiar with live streaming technology. The course accompanies the popular “Helping Your Church Live Stream” book available via paperback, kindle, audiobook and free PDF download.
Worship Summit Live is all about the connections your church can make. This event is a celebration of the opportunities made by live streaming. Come for a day of collaboration, and Q&A with the experts speaking on a number of timely topics. This summit is the best way to jump start your church’s communications outreach and audiovisual team goals. You can learn more about Worship Summit Live at https://WorshipSummit.Live
