I was privileged to be a part of beta testing a new site designed to create a support community for those involved in Church Production – which is a fancy term church sound and video for worship services. Most of us who deal with small church technology know that “team” is often a fancy worked for “one person” (grin). The goal of this new community is to help church techs of all levels learn from one another. The system is a live question/answer site, where anyone can post a question which can be answered by anyone/everyone in the community.
The community, called Production Serve, launches today. I think it will be an incredible resource for smaller churches – and the best thing of all is that it is absolutely free. How often can we get free advice from experts in any field? Not very many.
The company behind this free service is Clark, primarily a church A/V consultant, which is trying to move beyond just products and services to help the church.
I know what you’re thinking: “What’s in it for them?”
To be honest I don’t really know. But having participated in some of the question and answer threads at Production Serve, I did not see them push products or services – they just offered their opinions.
Here’s what they say about the new community:
Production Serve has one mission and that is to serve those who serve in church production by sharing our collective knowledge.
Good stuff. Way to go, Clark.
