Your worship backgrounds should complement your sermon slides in color and style. Attracting new volunteers often begins with publicly showing appreciation for the ones you already have.    Be careful not to overload your social media audience. For Facebook, stick to 1-2 posts per day, never more than once per hour. Creating a detailed style guide is the perfect way to keep consistent branding throughout your church. Try a marketing technique at least twice before ditching it. It often takes repetition for people to respond.

Using the same backgrounds every week is a recipe for boredom. Keep a log of which motions you're using so that it's easy to mix it up. Tagging people in your church's photos on Facebook is a great way to reach their friends.Your church's website should not be judged solely by how it looks, but by how well it works for the user. When someone takes the time to send your church a message on your website or social media, always write back. Always seem to be short on volunteers? Ask yourself: Would you volunteer for you?

Motions aren't universal. Choose backgrounds that fit your unique congregation. Consider age and worship style. Highlighting volunteers on your church's social pages is a great way to inspire others to get involved.
All fonts should be legible and appropriate for what you are communicating. "I'm so glad I didn't waste my time proofreading.” (said no one ever) It's impossible to do everything, but you can do a few things really well. Choose your projects carefully and give them your all.

Set your computer's wallpaper to black. If your presentation software crashes, your screen will simply look blank rather than showing the error. Asking questions is a great way to spark conversation on your church's social pages.
Use a consistent color scheme across all of your designs. Choose colors that reflect your church's unique personality. When you feel confident in where you're going with the lyrics, you can be proactive with putting them on the screen.  Just because it worked for another church doesn't mean it will work well for yours. Make changes with your specific congregation in mind.
