Emerging Trends: Using Video and Arts to Enhance Worship

Like a pipe organ, a worship screen can be used to add to the worship service. And like an organ, it needs a trained, technically proficient operator so that it is incorporated well, says Steven Koster of churchjuice.com and leadingwithlight.com, in a presentation he gave at the 2011 Calvin Symposium on Worship held at Calvin Seminary. Koster’s presentation, Leading With Light: Using Video Projectors Wisely, discusses ways to use the screen and develop media that enhance service rather than distracting worshipers from it. In another article, Koster shares recent trends in visual media technology in the church.

For the even more ambitious techie or aspiring filmmaker, creating great worship videos to show on your worship screen is another way to connect with congregations. Award-winning filmmaker Brian Fuller offers tips and tools for creating great worship videos, based on a presentation he made at the Calvin Symposium in 2013. 

And, a podcast from the 2013 Symposium is also available from Calvin that highlights ways to engage people of all ages in worship through dance, music, video and visual arts. This discussion is led by Calvin's Worship Renewal Grant recipients.
