Every weekend at Mount Pleasant Christian Church, several projection volunteers control the presentation screens during the services. They advance slides, open new documents, and make sure the mouse arrow or computer desktop never show up on the screen.
The projectionists are responsible for displaying graphics and images that appear on the screens. These include videos, sermon slides, worship lyrics, and anything else that appears on the screens. The projectionists must be aware of the order of the service and at the same time be ready to make changes at a moment’s notice. Most importantly, the projectionists try to anticipate the needs of the congregation and have the song lyrics displayed just before the worshippers need them.
That is why, from time to time, we invite all projection volunteers to come together for a training session on ProPresenter, the software used to control and display slides and videos. During these training sessions we cover basic principles of presentation, as well advanced setting and features that can enhance any presentation during a weekend service.
ProPresenter 5 training will be offered to all volunteers at Mount Pleasant Christian Church on May 17, 2015, at 6 pm.
During the 2-1/2 hour training session, we will cover:
- Interface overview
- Text flow
- Video effects
- Media management
- Stage display
- DVD ripping
Even if you don’t yet serve on the Programming team you are welcome to attend this training session. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
