Church video announcements can be an ideal tool for relaying essential information to the congregation. Using video instead of live stage announcements can help you avoid mistakes (since you can edit them out or reshoot) plus using video helps you stay attuned to how long announcements are running.  The downside is all the work involved in planning, preparing, shooting, editing, and completing these videos each week.

If you don’t have a video team, or if that team is already at overbooked, you might consider outsourcing this task. A video announcement company might be able to provide you with the announcement videos you need at a fraction of what it would cost to hire a full-time (or even part-time) employee. While you may have to tighten up your announcement request deadlines to give them time to create each video, this type of service can save your church money while delivering video announcements you can feel great about.
