Joe Somma

Proclaim is a great presentation platform for worship!

2016-11-01

Proclaim did the job and more and was very easy to setup and ran flawlessly throughout the weekend - highly recommend this cloud-based platform for flexibility across devices and desktop OSs.

Pros

Subscription-based pricing - very affordable and high-value feature set for the price.

Cons

Song management UI to make it easier to manage a master list of songs independent of a particular presentation project.

Patrick Slaven

Decent presentation software platform

2016-10-31

We have found this feature to be clever, but not terribly useful, as most people use the LifeChurch Bible app at our location.

Pros

Interface is great for volunteers to help use.

Cons

Connections to the presentation can be slow, causing slide transitions to happen with a significant lag. Limited display options. Inability to insert new slides within a song. Bugs and quirks abound.

A great solution for smaller churches

2019-04-12

The integrations with other Faithlife products makes for an easy way to produce high quality media, both in service and online. The interface works well and is easy to learn.

Pros

Integration with Logos Bible Software, ability to record and upload sermons in-app, additional integration with Faithlife groups and sites, good amount of content in their Pro Media subscription.

Cons

Few options to customize the stage display.

Cloud based Church Presentation Software

2018-11-14

Big fan and excited to see where they go next. Great to work with and support is killer! They are there to help you make the most of the app.

Pros

Early adopters of cloud based church presentations. No saving or needing to use USB drives. Everything is in the cloud! All your media, all your slides... everything in the cloud!

Cons

Was a little unstable early on but seem to have it all under control now. Must have access to the internet.

Easy to use and can be update by a team anywhere.

2017-08-09

Project slides for events.

Pros

I like that it offers scrolling text at the bottom to notify people without stopping an event.

Cons

One of the teammates uploads a PowerPoint presentation into it and the system loses all the data and just leaves the right amount of blank slides.

Excellent choice for church presentation software

2019-10-31

Proclaim is a great package and highly recommended. It's getting better over time and works well for our church.

Pros

It has enough customizability that it should be usable by both small and large churches alike.

Cons

The biggest drawback is the song database and organization.

A Simple Presentation Tool For Beginners

2018-08-21

Proclaim has served its purpose and the updates have helped keep us relevant. It's never failed us during a service or caused any major issues.

Pros

Proclaim is a great presentation tool for our volunteer team simply because it is easy to use and learn.

Cons

The trade off for ease of use is limitations on what can be done with the software i.e. editing what can be done on individual screens etc.

Nice interface, with a collaborative focus, but could use some improvements

2016-12-10

They are a cloud solution, first and foremost, which provides some nice integrations and collaborative tools, but it seems to hinder other parts of the software.

Pros

Collaborative Nice user interface Cloud-based Nice templates and animation

Cons

Expensive Requires careful and accurate pre-planning, which is hard to achieve in many church services Upselling Cross-selling

A Good Way to Boost Your Church's Signage and Presentations

2019-02-12

My church uses Proclaim as a way to control our signage and to create simple presentations for Sunday services.

Pros

Proclaim's user interface is very good.

Cons

Proclaim provides many slide themes that we can choose. However, not every theme will have all the type of slides that we need. For instance, some themes lack announcement slides while others will lack hymnal slides.

A great church presenter once set up the way you want it.

2019-12-10

Overall, having edited each slide to verify font and size consistency, it has worked really well for our church.

Pros

Having the ability to import songs directly from CCLI is wonderful!

Cons

In order to keep the same font and sizes in a whole presentation, I need to edit every slide. I have not found a way to make a standard font/size for the different sections. It would be helpful to be able to edit a "Title 1" to be a specific font and size for the entire presentation.

Flexible...

2020-02-21

Pros

What makes this software product fit the bill for us is that we can have it installed multiple places and leverage its powerful feature suite.

Cons

The integration with PowerPoint is a bit week as transitions and animations can be lost.

Proclaim for Churches is Great!

2019-10-15

Everyone has a login and can access the program.

Pros

The best part for me is that the sermon recording is built in and you can access all the information through one app that everyone can use.

Cons

There is a bit of a steep learning curve. But once you get the hang of it it is awesome. I guess my biggest con is getting the other team members to use it so that I can upload the sermons to our website through Proclaim rather than a flash drive.

Huge BANG for the BUCK!

2020-02-10

We used it to move away from another brand of presentation software.

Pros

The software is fairly easy to set up and use, even for "non-tech" people.

Cons

The lack of an "undo" button for some actions makes editing slides a bit difficult at times but that is nothing that can't be overcome.

Best Church Presentation software

2019-09-14

My overall experience with this is very positive. I would recommend it to any church looking for presentation software. It is the best that there is available.

Pros

It lives on the cloud, and it has a beautiful UI.

Cons

The challenging part with it is that it is difficult to organize assets. I often have a hard time tagging graphics that I load for a particular use. And the thumbnails are blank, which makes it hard to find my graphic when I search for it later.

Great product and integration with other Faithlife products, too.

2019-09-20

Pros

The ability to record sermons automatically and then publish them directly to our website and created podcasts automatically is a big time saver.

Cons

Since the product is in the cloud, it is dependent on Faithlife's servers and our internet connection but we've rarely experienced problems with either. There is a way to run the presentation without being connected to the internet, but it does take some additional steps.

Faithlife Proclaim helping presentation go smoothly during service

2018-11-28

It allows the hard of seeing easy accessibility as well as being able to upload onto our churches website and application.

Pros

This software allows easy accessibility through the cloud .. and to portray during the service.. the smooth transitions and creations of presentations can help members read the song lyrics as they are sung, receive alerts such as daycare issues on their personal devices and ability to see easily from the projector announcements and special presentations especially during the holiday seasons.

Cons

If the cloud is down you will not be able to access or edit your presentation.

Proclaim Review

2016-12-10

Our preschool also uses it to do presentations and activities with their classes

Pros

It makes it easy to make a large number of slides without having to format each individual when creating song lyrics or a long list of points.

Cons

Max video upload is 300 megabytes, which isn't too bad, most of the time you wouldn't need that large of a file. The Program can be a bit laggy at times especially if you don't sync your slides a little bit ahead of your service or program.

This is a great software, but depending on your organization size and service setup you might do just as well with a cheaper and simpler keynote, powerpoint, or google slides.

Great product

2017-06-07

Great product and is everything you need in your church, however the cost for a small church maybe to much. There are other softwares that will fit the need at a better deal. However I will have to say they are not as good.

Pros

I like the ease of use and the package deals that are available for this software. I do believe it is the most updated software for church presentation on the market.

Cons

Though it is not to bad I wish there was a basic version that would be a one time payment and not an monthly fee.

Proclaim - A Valuable Tool

2020-09-02

We installed this software several years ago and have used it with very few issues. Any time we have issues Faithlife has been quick to aid us in solving the issue.

Pros

We feed the display that appears on the screens in the auditorium over to our video production software to add lower thirds and other full-screen graphics to our live stream.

Cons

There is very little that we do not like about Proclaim.
