Logos Bible Software hires Christian music executive to launch church presentation software program
BELLINGHAM, WA—January 14, 2011—Logos Bible Software has recruited Matthew Peterson to launch its new church presentation software, Proclaim.
Peterson has joined Logos Bible Software as “Proclaimer, New Media Executive Director,” bringing keen insight from his previous experience in social media marketing, worship music, digital delivery and from working with the Church worldwide.
Previously with Integrity Music as Senior Director of Online Marketing, Peterson oversaw among other things, direct marketing for artists Hillsong, John Mark McMillan, Paul Baloche, Don Moen, Kari Jobe, Lincoln Brewster, the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Gateway Church, New Life Church, Carlos Whitakker and Israel Houghton.
Peterson was also an early pioneer of social media marketing with the Skyroo firm and MusiChristian, managing properties and campaigns for Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Jesse McCartney, Faith Hill, Hilary Duff, Plain White T's, Taylor Swift, Toby Mac, Casting Crowns, Skillet, Newsboys, Kutless, Sanctus Real, Relient K, Switchfoot and many more.
“We're excited to have Matt on board,” said Logos Bible Software marketing VP Dan Pritchett. “His unique background and extensive experience working with musicians, worship leaders and pastors is just what we need to launch this new type of church presentation software package which meets the needs of worship leaders and preaching pastors alike.”
Proclaim takes church presentation software to a new level of connectivity and ease-of-use. It allows pastors, worship leaders and team members to access and develop a church's service order and build presentation elements from any computer throughout the week, and then integrate and present them from the same application.
“I'm excited to be a part of the Logos team,” said Peterson. “Proclaim is a game-changer for the Church ministry team, solving the issues that revolve around pulling your presentation together at the last minute, moving presentations to the web for easy access, making it simple for pastors to send study material to the church presentation, and making presenting simple for all volunteers. With online storage for worship multi-media, low monthly pricing based on church size, and a fully integrated digital store, Proclaim is the church presentation software that pastors, worship leaders and worship teams have been asking for. Our development and design team have put together one of the most useful tools for the Church.”
Proclaim will launch with approximately 30,000 media offerings in a fully integrated digital store, allowing users to access videos, still images, backgrounds and more from top worship media content providers like Igniter Media, Steele House Media, Worship Films, Power Point Sermons, Awake Images, Image Vine and others.
The software is scheduled for release in Spring, 2011. Visit http://www.ProclaimOnline.com to stay up to date and to sign up for a free test drive.
