Here are a few reviews:

TC Johnson – The Worship Media Handbook Review

“I just finished reading through The Worship Media Handbook and the first two words I have to say are, “Ohh” and “Wow.” Jeff McIntosh has done the most incredible job of covering every conceivable angle when it comes to putting together an effective and attractive worship projection presentation. Throughout the guide Jeff continually references how each topic is to be considered for not only music worship but the spoken message as well. From lyric projection to scripture display, he hits all of the marks.”

Jenni Wright – eBook Review: The Worship Media Handbook“

“This resource is a practical compilation of no-frills tips and tricks. It assumes a very basic understanding of design and church jargon with terms like gutters, IMAG, etc., but not enough to be over the head of a new reader. Anyone from any background can benefit from the quick read, and the intentional imagery helps illustrate the many lists of dos and don’ts.”

Jared Taylor – Review: The Worship Media Handbook“

“I would highly recommend The Worship Media Handbook as a training resource for new volunteers, old volunteers and staff. And, since one purchased copy of the handbook can “be reproduced, distributed or transmitted in any form or by any means” within your one church location, you can even use it as a tool to get conversations going with Pastors and musicians (maybe not drummers – it will depend on the individual).”

Josh White – Book Review: The Worship Media Handbook“

All in all, The Worship Media Handbook is a great resource for anyone who works with projection during their church services. I would highly suggest buying a few copies and handing them out to your team, or plan a training meeting and implement the things you learned. We are actually in the process of creating a team training session where we will go through this book and structure many of these things into our planning.”

  1. Thank you so much for the church motion graphics.  I see them in our church but had never really thought of what they are called but they are really nice and harmonizing especially when church announcements are going on. I like the fact that CMG Scholarships are introduced to help church plants and small ministries reap the benefits of a CMG Subscription even though they are unable to pay full-price for motion backgrounds”.   This gives a great opportunity to small  churches to grow and be able to spread the word of God.

  2. Just this past week I was in South Africa and was invited to a church in Johannesburg , one of the most eye catching things to me apart from the good music and perfect PA system was the bsckground graphics and templates. Kept me wondering how they make such beautiful graphics  and all and here is just the perfect answer to all that, church motion graphics. Looking at the samples of this studio I can tell hear guys really do a great job and would recommend them to my local church. I like the fact that these guys are also time tested and have quite some positive reviews.

    1. Hello Donny, 

      I must agree, There are some beautiful Church Motion Graphics out there, and as you stated, everything seems to be just right when you have the perfect sounding PA system, amazing music, and the perfect background graphics. What more can you ask for right?

      It is my pleasure to be able to assist you in answering your question with the perfect answer to one of the most eye catching things. 

      What are those background graphics?

      Thank you for your comment.

      Blessings To You My Friend,

      Jerry

  3. Hello Jerry. Thank you for sharing your review of Church Motion Graphics. I must admit that this review is very comprehensive as it covers the history of CMG and everything we need to know about the software.

    I was in the media department back then in school. I never had a privilege to know about CMG but I’m glad I do now because I have big plans for media. I intend doing this as part of my business. I can seem that CMG users speak well of the software. So it’s worth giving a try.

    I celebrate you!
