  • How Visual Media Can Enhance A Service {Interview}

    Camron Ware is the founder of Visual Worshiper, the originator of Environmental Projection in churches. He travels the country helping churches re-think their visual worship through Environmental Projection, lighting, and visual media. 

    We recently had the chance to ask Camron some questions about how visual media can enhance a worship service, the importance of intentionality in a service, and much more.

    GW: In what ways can visual media enhance a church service?

    CW: Visuals are able to transform a physical space and take a congregation somewhere different than four walls.  A visual environment showing the cosmos, a forest, a high cathedral, or even simply showing a single candle on a screen can all help enhance a service. 

    GW: In your experience, what is the most effective piece of software that you use on a regular basis?

    CW: In the visual worship context, I think ProPresenter and ProVideoPlayer are some great software choices for churches to start to dive into visual worship. In addition to controlling lyrics, there are so many visual edits you can do right within the software that expands your media library.

    GW: How can design and media help engage people during worship?

    CW: Visuals are able to communicate without words, yet can often be more powerful than words. From personal experience, I’ve found that rich imagery (such as sacred icons or old paintings telling parts of the Bible) can make me pause and reflect.

    Media can point to the Creator, which helps worshipers engage their heart, soul, mind, and body into pondering who God is and what He’s done in our lives.

    My favorite examples (albeit obvious) are showing visuals of the cosmos during “God of Wonders,” or “How Great Thou Art.” That is one simple, yet powerful way to engage people's minds into thinking about who God is.

    GW: What is one simple thing churches can do to enhance the look and feel of their service?

    CW: Well, Environmental Projection of course!  I’m kidding – kind of …

    Intentionality. If the visual worship leader (along with music worship pastor and lead pastor) remember that every visual element of the service has a voice, I’ve found that a worship service can be transformational. When we use all the technology all the time, it becomes noisy.

    I teach churches to always ask, “What’s the story here?” It's also important to use the best tool to communicate that. Those tools may include lighting, a video, a stage piece, a corporate prayer/reading, projection, and more.

  • Upcoming Changes in Graceway Login Process

    This fall, we are gearing up to launch a brand new version of the Graceway Media website with many exciting new features. We’re also updating several items behind the scenes to make the site run even more smoothly for you. One of the items that we are addressing is the way that you log in to your account.

    Prior to 2011, an account’s username and email address were treated as two separate pieces of information. A member essentially had the option to log in with either an email address or an actual username. Over the past few years, however, we have worked toward simplifying the login process and anyone who became a member after 2011 now simply uses an email address to log in.

    Moving forward, ALL members will use their email address to log in to access their account.

    So what does this mean for you? If you regularly use your email address to log in, nothing will change. If you originally registered prior to 2011 and log in with a username (non-email address), you will now access your account by logging in with the primary email address associated with your account. We encourage you to take a look at your account profile and make sure that a current email address is listed.

    We’re excited about the things to come for Graceway Media in the very near future, and we think you will be too. As always, if you have any questions, please send us an email at info@gracewaymedia.com or give us a call at 1-888-778-7543.

    Thank you for continuing to allow Graceway Media the privilege of designing media for your church so you can do ministry.
