Why Not Expand Your Approach to Video Sermons — and Keep Your Congregation Engaged?

sermon videos

You can create easy, dynamic sermon videos with auto-follow and auto-zoom for a reasonable cost. Automatically film, record, share live your services or sermons and spread God’s Word more easily.

Each week, pastors spend time preparing their sermons and message from the Lord that they want to share. But delivering your message is not enough: You have to make sure your whole community can have access to it. Maybe people missed the last service, or they want to re-listen to a great sermon they related to. And what if your congregation members would like to share your precious words with friends because they think it might help them? The list is long for why having a recorded version of your message is a great idea — but above all, recording and sharing your videos is important for your church.

So here you are, wanting to record your message and wondering: How can we make good, lively videos that attract our community? Will a static, unmovable camera on a tripod be good enough? You won’t be able to move from your position, and the lack of visual movement might be boring to watch. How can you ensure that all expression and detail is transmitted on camera if no one is there to zoom in on you when needed? And will someone be available every Sunday to direct the camera, zoom and record? Last but not least, publishing sermons online requires work and, most importantly, time. Someone must begin and end the recording, save the file, edit the audio, and then upload the sermon to the internet. This can take hours, and the weekend message ends up being published on online days or weeks later (and sometimes never).

There are many questions and many technical aspects of video sermons to think about.

Save time and trouble.

Forget about a boring, static camera! Get an auto-follow robot that will track you onstage and make your videos dynamic and interesting to watch. No more standing still in front of the camera while losing bored viewers. You can move across the church stage while your robot cameraman tracks and films you, and you’ll capture your viewers’ attention with a lively video. Offering a dynamic video typically increases viewers’ attention from about 3 minutes to dozens of minutes. This means your videos will be viewed and shared by more people, and ultimately your message will be more heard and spread.

Why do churches with a big enough budget hire one or more cameramen to film? Simply because cameramen can follow a speaker and make a dynamic and interesting video. But having a cameraman isn’t an affordable solution for all churches. The right solution (and at a fraction of the cost ) is an auto-follow robot camera like PIXIO for cameras or PIXEM for smartphones and tablets.
