Media is increasingly common in worship services, but it is often little more than projected sermon points or announcements. Kent V. Wilson, a Lutheran pastor who has led several traditional congregations in their introduction of media into worship, provides first-hand guidance to churches that are considering using media in worship, or that are exploring and evaluating how better to use media in worship.
Divided into three sections, this practical and engaging book discusses the "why" questions surrunding media in worship, the "how" questions about worship space, team-buidling, and visual literacy, and the "what" questions-leading to actual media resources that you can use in your church.
A DVD is included with the book, containing ready-to-use graphics for a multi-week series built around the "Bread of Life" series of Bible readings (from John 6), video interviews with church leaders across the country, recounting their experiences with starting and using media in worship, and additional video clips related to "Bread of life." Links to a free website are also included, where you'll find forms model team mission statements, and more.
