These 3 Sweet Things You Can Do in Proclaim Shouldn’t Be a Secret

Collage with 3 things in large type representing 3 things you can do in Proclaim

Sometimes the easiest tricks are the best. You know, the ones that make you wonder “Where has this been all my life?”

For example, did you know that keeping your ice cream box in a plastic bag keeps it soft and scoopable? Or that if you cut through just the skin of an orange from top to bottom and then left to right (all the way around, into quarters), it’s a cinch to peel?

Proclaim has some juicy tricks, too. (Proclaim is presentation software designed for churches. With it, anyone on your team—even responsible pre-teens—can add sermon or song slides, make edits on the fly, or run slides, making service planning easier.) Try these three during your next church presentation to save time and stomp out distractions.

1. Pull viewers in with live streaming

Show the same presentation to everyone—whether they’re online or sitting in the pews. Proclaim makes it easy to run your in-person service and live stream—all from the same presentation.

2. Draw on your screens

Clean design and complementary colors help your slides grab eyeballs. But drawing on your slides—live—adds a new level.

All you need is the Proclaim Remote app, and you’re set! (Pick it up in the App Store or Google Play.) Don’t forget to install the app after you download it.

3. Customize your confidence monitors for each member of your team

A confidence monitor is meant to boost confidence . . . but that doesn’t work well if the person on stage has a hard time reading it (or it doesn’t show what they need).

Let’s say your pastor needs dark text on a light background, and your worship leader needs the reverse. No problem. Create custom confidence monitor templates, and never have to think about it again.

There’s something else you can do, too: configure the confidence monitor to show chords for your worship team.

Plus, you can send any message you want to the corner of the screen, like “Turn mic on.”


And there you go—three ways you can use Proclaim to help keep attention on the Word and help your services run smoothly.
