Video is a great way to help your women feel connected right now. These simple tips for creating live and recorded video will help you get started.

As we’re all scrambling to transition women’s ministry online for the foreseeable future, videos are a great way to connect with your women.

Your smiling face can be a calming presence when life feels uncertain.

Creating videos doesn’t have to be complicated. Don’t overthink it.

There’s no need to do any video editing or purchase fancy equipment.

You really just need three things:

  1. The camera on your phone
  2. A window (free light source)
  3. A tripod

I’ve resisted “going live” on Facebook for well over a year, but desperate times call for desperate measures. It does get easier. I promise.

If you’re nervous or unsure about using video, I want to encourage you to DO IT SCARED. God is going to continue to give us opportunities to grow and stretch. I’m praying we’ll each embrace them.

I created a short video to share some of my best video tips with you.

 

Note: Here’s the link to the tools (affiliate) I mentioned in the video if you want to check them out.

I want your women to be able to see you, hear you, and pay attention to what you have to share.

Plus, your women miss you – seeing you and hearing you provides great comfort!

Videos provide connection in a way that the written word cannot.

I encourage you to connect regularly with your women via video and invite them to connect via video with you too.

As I suggested in the video, practice will help you become more comfortable on camera.

I recently learned that when authors record Bible study videos, they film them out of order intentionally because even professionals get better with each video shoot.

Give yourself some grace. In these trying times, no one expects you to become an overnight video expert. They are just thrilled you’ve shown up, and you’re making an effort to connect with them.

I’d love to know how are you using video to connect with your women right now?
