You may have seen these already, but here are 5 resources for free video. Before the list starts, I wanted to mention that many of the “for pay” video resources out there also offer the occasional free video file, so sign up for their newsletter so you’ll catch them. Here’s the list:
1. OpenResources.org From the site: “This website is for churches worldwide to download and use an entire library of creative materials – absolutely free. Materials include sermon audio, countdowns, promotional design graphics and opening videos from a wide variety of message series and churches.”
2. Open.LifeChurch.tv From the site: “LifeChurch.tv Open website is available to pastors, churches, and ministries worldwide to give access to and usage of an entire library of LifeChurch.tv creative materials – at absolutely no charge. Materials include outlines from a wide variety of message series, complete with corresponding promotional design graphics and videos, broadcast-quality opening videos and much more.”
3. Resources.ElevationChurch.org From the site: “God has blessed our church with an incredible Creative team, and we want to make their work available to you – series graphics, videos, trailers, print pieces – all for free.”
4. Muddy River Media From the site: “Muddy River Media is a registered, non-profit mission society which exists to consistently provide free, quality media resources for churches using the internet as the primary delivery tool. We create and offer media such as: Illustrative Videos, Small Group Videos and leader’s guides, Motion Backgrounds, Life Story Videos, Countdown Timers, Stock Photographs and Illustrations”
5. Free Worship Loops From the site: “We make video loops. You need video loops… It really is that simple. But, are they really free!? Yes, they really are completely free. As our collection grows we may offer them all on one DVD for a few bucks just to make things easier on folks with less than blindingly fast broadband. If this is something you are interested in, let us know. But what’s the catch!? There is no catch. Really. We make loops, you need loops – end of story.”
