Intuitive, Powerful Church Presentation Software

Overview

The definitive choice in live production & presentation software for Churches & Houses of Worship

Now Anyone Can Present Like a Pro

ProPresenter is the leader in House of Worship and Church presentation software. With ProPresenter 7, the presentation suite you may already know is more powerful than ever before, with a reliable video engine capable of rendering and presenting videos and presentations, with support for multiple streams and even pro-level video outputs.

Built for the Church. Built to be Volunteer Friendly.

ProPresenter was built for churches first, and staff and volunteer teams love the simple, intuitive nature of the ProPresenter platform. It’s easy to go from zero to beautiful, engaging presentations in a short time. ProPresenter has a deep feature set, and it keeps growing. But no matter what we add, we always keep user simplicity and program stability at the core of our design philosophy.

Why ProPresenter for Worship Services?

 

 

So, what exactly makes ProPresenter the ideal presentation and video solution for your church or House of Worship?

R

Our customers say we’ve found the perfect balance between simple, volunteer-friendly design and deep, pro-grade functionality.

R

Our advanced, multi-layered architecture for building slides (including support for natural, seamless playback of video files) can help you produce some of the richest visuals imaginable — yet it’s simple enough to get started within just minutes.

R

Live Streaming with ProPresenter means your volunteers and staff can focus less on learning different software and equipment, and focus more on telling the greatest story ever told

What else makes ProPresenter right for your Church or House of Worship? Check out these compelling reasons.

Built for Churches First

ProPresenter isn’t just for churches. But it was first designed specifically for churches and worship services. Every feature, every facet, every decision we made building our software—churches were and are at the heart.

Now, the rest of the world has realized that ProPresenter is a powerful, intuitive presentation software solution. That’s why you’ll find ProPresenter at the Olympics, at NASA, in the US Congress, and all throughout the business world and educational systems and even used in eSports for streaming video games.

But at the core? ProPresenter is built for churches.

Over 130 Bible Translations — Just a Click Away.

Unlike free church presentation software, ProPresenter makes it simple to pull in Scripture from multiple translations — more than 130 of them, to be precise. Easily show multiple translations or languages at once, and never have to worry about manually formatting Scripture again.

All Your Needed Industry Integrations

Most churches that aren’t using ProPresenter yet are already relying on free worship software or other common programs, like CCLI’s SongSelect, Planning Center Online, or music software like Ableton or MultiTracks. 

R

ProPresenter natively integrates with Planning Center Online and CCLI’s SongSelect, making it easy for you to pull in lyrics for Sunday morning. No more needing to copy and paste lyrics from Google. This makes it possible for you to have your worship set automatically created.

R

You can import songs and pull them into custom slides, or drag and drop until they look just right.

R

Songs imported via SongSelect automatically include copyright information.

Remote Apps

Does your speaker want to change their own slides from the stage? Maybe the Worship Leader wants to see the next line of lyrics on their iPad?

R

ProPresenter has apps for iOS and Android apps for Remote Control, to control the presentation from your phone.

R

There are also Stage Display apps for Android, iOS, tvOS, and iPadOS, so you can send lyrics over Apple TV, or to an iPad on the stage.

Song Copyright Info Included by Default

Whether you’re a member of CCLI, OneLicense, or something else, you must display copyright information for projected lyrics to stay legally compliant. Finding the copyright details and adding them to your songs is tedious, but is handled automatically with ProPresenter’s SongSelect integration.

R

ProPresenter automatically includes song copyright information by default, saving you time and energy and keeping you copyright-compliant.

R

Our worship presentation software is the simplest way to present song lyrics on the big screen — all while staying copyright compliant.

Compatibility with Ableton, Multitracks and More

Is your church’s worship or media team using Ableton Live, MultiTracks Playback, Loop Community Prime or another music backing track software? If so, you guessed it — ProPresenter offers smooth compatibility with these utilities as well.

Stage Screens Countdowns & Timers

Many Houses of Worship use timers or countdown clocks to keep services running according to schedule.

ProPresenter makes this simple, including via a stage display, which allows the speaker to see both sermon notes and a clock or countdown timer simultaneously — and running completely independently of the main visual displays.

Musicians can make use of their confidence monitor by displaying chords on the Stage Screen. This enables musicians to look up from their music stands, and stages to be less cluttered.

Announcement Layer

ProPresenter’s Announcement Layer is a fantastic way to take control over what’s happening on which screens.

R

Many churches display their live stream feed or broadcast feed on screens throughout the facility during church services. But there may be locations where that doesn’t make sense.

R

The Announcement Layer allows your scrolling announcement slides to keep playing on lobby displays (or elsewhere) while the main service is happening in the auditorium and on the live stream.

CHURCH LIVE STREAMING SOFTWARE MADE EASY

Easy live streaming software is integral to church services. Training volunteers and staff how to switch video camera inputs and start or stop a live stream should be easy, and that’s where ProPresenter’s reliable live streaming for churches comes in.

ProPresenter takes away the hard work of formatting lyrics or content for in-person screens and online live streams by automating this process.

Multiple Looks and Displays

If your church has multiple displays throughout the Sanctuary, Foyer, and other places, ProPresenter has you covered for pushing different content to multiple displays. ProPresenter allows your tech team to push multiple looks and multiple content streams to various displays and locations throughout your facility.

Campus Discounts

Every church’s use case for ProPresenter might be a little bit different. Maybe the youth ministry or kids’ ministry operates in its own ecosystem, totally separate from the main auditorium database. Maybe you need to run multiple copies of ProPresenter in different services at the same time.

To simplify pricing, we’ve created a Campus license exclusively for churches.

R

With a Campus license, your church can use up to 20 copies of ProPresenter present at one physical location for the cost of just 2.5 licenses.

R

It’s a great way to keep costs down for larger or even midsized ministries where separate ProPresenter databases or licenses would help to smooth operations
