Worship presentation software has come a long way in the last several years. There’s so much you can do to create eye-catching slides that are easy to read and look great. But one of the most important decisions that go into creating slides for church presentation software is choosing a clean and easy to read font for worship media.
Choosing the best fonts for presentations will give your congregation a more enjoyable experience when worshipping at church. They will be able to engage and worship without having to strain to see what’s on the screens. In addition to songs lyrics, it is also important to choose a stylish and readable font for displaying information during announcements. Taking time to choose the best fonts for worship media is one subtle (or not so subtle) way we can serve and love our church congregation– simply by putting in the time and effort.
Maybe you have a font you love using for your worship slides already. That’s great! But choosing the best font for presentations is just the first step. A few other decisions that come with the job of creating slides for worship software are deciding what size font looks best on a presentation, what colors look best for worship slides, and also deciding whether to use all caps or lowercase letters.
