Video conferencing is mainly associated with corporate boardrooms and offices trying to boost productivity and is not often though of for house of worship. But as churches become more comfortable with technology, many are starting to see the advantages of using professional conferencing technology in their ministries. Churches all over the country are using live streaming services to extend their reach and create lasting content. This same type of video technology can be used to bring people closer together in an even more personal way with video conferencing.


For whatever reason your church is looking into video conferencing technology from community outreach, internal meetings, or beyond, you might want to consider upgrading from your computer camera and mic to something more professional.
