 The Presentation Team primarily utilizes "Proclaim" software for overall services, plus "PowerPoint" for the pastor's sermon.


At a base level, this involves just changing the slides at the correct times in the service. More experienced team members will understand how to create and manipulate items in "Proclaim"

But Harvester is embarking on a new course in which lighting is an ever changing part of the Worship . Experience.
