Proclaim Remote App – Control Presentation with Sermon Notes on iPad
Proclaim worship software isn’t my favorite, but they do offer something that I don’t think anyone else gives to preachers – the ability to not only control their sermon presentation but also see their sermon notes. This benefits preachers like me who use their iPad or Android tablet for preaching instead of using printed notes.
The Proclaim Remote app will wireless control a Proclaim worship software presentation from an iPad, Android tablet or smartphone or even an iPhone or iPod Touch. The Remote app integrates sermon preaching notes into the control app. Pastors can control the slides from their pulpit or lectern as they preach. At the same time they will see their sermon notes. See the details at Logos.
Proclaim offers a lot of other tools for use like PowerPoint integration, incorporation of services like Song Select for song lyrics and multimedia services like Highway Media and Graceway Media. Worship leaders who use Planning Center Online can also integrate with the software.
Proclaim runs on both Windows and Mac and comes from Logos Bible Software. They cost is based on a church’s worship attendance. Smaller churches pay as little as $10/month while large churches pay $20/month.
I’m not a fan of the Proclaim tool itself because it makes creating a worship presentation convoluted and clotted. It takes me much longer to build my sermon presentation than other tools, like my favorite MediaShout. I also don’t like the subscription model which forces people to keep paying.
Despite my qualms with Proclaim, it can offer some great options for those who use Song Select, want to subscribe to a media service and put together their sermon slides in PowerPoint to then import into Proclaim.
