In a perfect world, we would all be able to afford as many $15.00 mini-movies and $7.00 motion backgrounds as our creative hearts desired. Unfortunately, all of these downloads add up all too quickly and can drain your media fund in a matter of no time. I’ve found that the best bang for your buck is a good subscription service. Several church media websites offer these now and you can find one that will fit almost any budget. While it is never fun to dish out the large chunk of money in the beginning, it doesn’t take long to realize that it’s a worthwhile investment that keeps paying off throughout the year. Below are a few websites that you should definitely consider when making the move to a subscription service.
Our church has been using Centerline for almost a year now and I’m confident that we will be renewing our subscription. In my opinion, they are the best all-around. I have even tweeted them suggestions before and they have created new content based on our need. I would say that my 2nd favorite is definitely Graceway based off of their awesome splash screens and editable Photoshop sermon slides. If you’re looking to show more illustration videos in your messages, you simply can’t beat the $199/year Igniter Media subscription for Mini Movies. Finally, the low cost options from Shift Worship, Motion Worship, and New Worship Media are a great way to get your media library started when you’re on a low budget.
