Most of us have learned the importance of streaming, but are we using it for the greatest impact available? Join Brian Blackmore and David Leuschner as they discuss the pros and cons of the various livestreaming platforms available. Learn how to determine which one is right for your church and if you should pre-record your content. You’ll also hear how to keep the connection between your online and in-person congregations.

Meet David and Brian

David Leuschner

David Leuschner has over 25 years of experience in the Audio, Video and Lighting world. David’s career includes working with many Christian artists, such as Chris Tomlin, Kari Jobe, and others, as well as TV networks and political coverage. He’s also worked with Universal Studios, Neiman Marcus, Girl Scouts of America, TBN, Daystar and many more.

From 2006 to 2017 David served as the Senior Director of Technical Arts and Technology at Gateway Church in Dallas, Texas. Gateway Church is currently one of the largest churches in America, but they started out with very minimal technical abilities. During his time there, David built out all of Gateway’s Audio, Video, Lighting, Web and Streaming systems.

Now, his main experience is with helping churches organize their tech areas into departments prepared to minister and worship with their God-given talents through Digital Great Commission Ministries.

Brian Blackmore

Brian Blackmore is publisher and founding editor of Church Production Magazine and ChurchProduction.com. He is active in the music and technical ministries at Hope Community Church in Raleigh, NC.
