Cheap and Free Resources to Get Your Church Streaming This Weekend


Churches across the country are cancelling services this Sunday and for the upcoming weeks. Fortunately, we live in an age of technology that allows us some unique privileges. In this very short article, we want to highlight some solutions for those of you who may want to stream services or sermons online. Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) is the best free option for that. It works great if you want to stream on YouTube, Facebook, or Twitch. If you need some help, here’s how to stream on YouTube with OBS.

Video Editing

If you wish to record videos and edit them, DaVinci Resolve is one of the best free options out there. Here’s a great tutorial series to help you learn how to use the software. Avid Media Composer also has a free version, but it’s a bit more limited. Also, if you don’t mind paying a little ($29.99 in the App Store), Luma Fusion is another option that could be useful, and they have tutorials as well.

We hope these resources are helpful to you all in this difficult season. We know it’s a stressful time, but don’t let the pandemic keep you from spreading the message of the Gospel!
