No more cheesy powerpoint

I’m trying to prepare myself for the use of PowerPoint during our worship services so I found this interview with Rene Shlaepfer intersting. Here are few ideas gleaned from the interview;

  • Keep the slides simple and uncluttered
  • The slides should never be obtrusive, and they should never dictate the substance of the message
  • Don’t settle for the templates and images that come with the program; everybody’s seen them
  • Don’t use every fancy swipe, fade and disolve just because it’s there
  • People respond best to images, include pictures of people when possible
