Have you ever been to a church that has words to songs up on a screen for all to see? Have you seen other uses of technology before, during, and after a church service? Wanted to implement them in your church? Then let’s get started!
In this course you will learn how to incorporate technology into all aspects of your church service: worship, administrative, evangelism, and more. You’ll learn about projecting words to hymns and other enhancements to worship service, how to record services and then use them later to post on Youtube or create DVDs for shut ins, learn about resources that will help you in creating your worship service, get a basic guide on various Microsoft Office products, and more. This course will also ask the students to create a service as a project to be turned in at the end. Come learn how you can enhance your service to your church!
We will do a video chat to see if there are any concerns about the course and get to meet one another.
This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU.
