Best Tips For Pastors Streaming On Facebook

In light of the recent COVID-19 Virus outbreak, I am really seeing the immediate (and hopefully brief) future being all about engaging with your congregation on platforms like Facebook. So, I put together this quick tutorial to help you navigate the world of broadcasting live.

If you are not on Facebook yet, don't worry. It would be relatively simple to build an audience with your congregation. You can go live from your personal page for sure, but you probably want to let other people help you manage your account. It's a great idea to start a Facebook Page just for your church if you don't have one already.

If your church doesn't have a Facebook Page, now might be a good time to create one. What's the difference in a Page and a Group? Don't worry, you can have both...

  • If you want to run any ads, you have to have a Facebook Page for your church
  • A Group will allow you to have deeper conversations with your congregation

When Should You Scratch A Mix And Start Over?

Uncategorized Feb 18, 2019

We've all been there right? You are into a mix and you are not sure whether the changes you've done in the last 2 hours have even improved the mix. It really seems like it sounds WORSE than before.

It's hard to do this, but here's my recommendation.

  1. Save your mix
  2. Start from Scratch again.
  3. Finish in a short time frame (say, an hour or 2)

Seems counter intuitive, right?

But most of the time, you will get further, faster than you ever thought possible.

What seemed to be unsurmountable before, you will likely brush right over.

When you are done (quicker than you probably thought), compare your new mix to the mix you were stuck on... see if it's not better.

Even if it's not, you are likely comparing your new hour long mix to a mix you've probably been on for days.
