Worship Summit Live to Help Ready Places of Worship for Live Streaming Services @ Virtual
Feb 11 @ 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM

After four successful educational sessions in 2020, Worship Summit Live 5 will be held to guide worship leaders and volunteers on the latest technical training for video production and live streaming services. On Thurs., Feb. 11, 2021, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Worship Summit Live virtual event will host church production and technology experts who will demonstrate the best methods to produce engaging worship celebrations for virtual and hybrid congregations. Attendees can view technical sessions at Worship Summit Live for free, as well as access a separate networking and collaboration meeting via Zoom for only $5. All registered attendees will have a chance to win a HuddleCamHD Pro IP webcam, valued at $549.

During these uncertain times, houses of worship have met the spiritual needs of their congregations in virtual settings. Worship Summit Live has become a popular event for worship leaders, musicians, volunteers, and administrators to gain practical knowledge to produce engaging live productions or video recordings of worship celebrations. The half-day event format will focus intently on technical topics, including a close look at the latest tools for online worship, how worship volunteers can use Open Broadcaster Software and ways that anyone can provide services with worship music, even non-musicians. Jake Gosselin, creator of Churchfront and Seth Haberman, known as the Digital Pastor, will be among the day’s speakers sharing their worship streaming tips. Ariel Viera, known as “Urbanist,” will be conducting live-streamed church tours from New York City. The Instructional technology learned during Worship Summit Live should continue to guide attendees whether worship gatherings are remote, in-person, or exist in a hybrid format.
