How to go beyond Mediocre in our Media

No one wants to be just average. We all want to do our best, at least that is my hope. However, for whatever reason, mediocre happens from what we produce in our media for Churches.

So how do you go beyond mediocre and produce consistent content that is compelling and impactful? Helping me answer that question is Daniel Gregory. I met him from a mutual friend, Adam McLaughlin. Daniel is a Pastor at Victory in Florida. They have found video to be a great way to connect with people, so they do a lot there.

Today Daniel and I talk about Christian media and how we can go beyond that in our media that we produce in our churches in ministries. He also shares with us his recommendations for cameras and production equipment as well as why he highly recommends sharing your Church’s content on YouTube.
