How Do You Prepare for Sunday?

How Do You Prepare for Sunday?

I often get asked "What's the best way to prepare visuals/lighting for Sunday?"

I always respond with: "Are you in the worship planning meetings?"

If you are, then it's a lot easier.  Hopefully if you are in the meetings with the senior pastor and worship pastor, you are able to listen to where they are going with the service, what the vibe is, what the message is, and pick visuals/lighting accordingly.

If not - then both you and your leadership have some homework.  It's so important to have communication between tech and pastors, but sometimes it's just not possible to have the tech person in those meetings. 

So, (worship pastors, I'm mainly talking to YOU); it's up to you to give the tech people and the visual worship leaders direction, when/if needed.  This might mean making notes on the order of worship, shooting them an email of what you're expecting, and giving them some general guidelines on what visuals/lighting to pick. 

Here are some simply suggestions on how to guide visually:


1.  Walk-in.  (Brighter house lights; Announcement loop on screen)

2. "Song" - It's upbeat, think high-energy yellow. The song talks about Christ is risen from the grave, so something joyful. No grunge imagery - think; clean.

3. "Song" - Medium tempo - maybe a blue or dark purple image.  The song talks about how Christ lifted us up out of darkness.  Would be great to fade from blue/dark purple to yellow on the bridge when we get louder.

4. "Song"  - Slow tempo - red crosses.  The song talks about how Christ died for our sins.  It's more somber, but prepares us for the message, so something still, red, and a cross/crown of thorns...etc.


 Get the idea? Good! Now go try it. :-)
