Pros: The ease of use is probably my favorite thing. If you need a basic display system for your church this will get you going right away without a hitch. If you need more advanced, multi network, multi screens, adding confidence moniters or stage displays, using iPads and IP networks with a control room. Ya know the mega church display setup.... this is still the preferred program to use. The training available from the manufacture is also a plus, as well as the online community constantly helping each other use this product to their specific needs. The continual advancement of the product is great, but also past versions still function wonderfully without the need to update unless you just need to advance with the times. Another is the nearly perfect problem-less track record of using the software it has in the 5+ years of me using it across multiple systems, setups, and churches.

The ability for nontech volunteers to quickly learn the program is worth any church investing. I train people who barely know how to operate a computer or operate a Mac, and they catch on quickly because the software makes it easy. Even as they are learning and there are problems with wrongs slides displaying (user errors), I'm able to oversee them and quickly fix without a big ordeal and without distraction for the audience on my accounts.

The integration with other products are excellent too. Whether it be SongSelect, social media in your messages, advanced graphics cards/etc, or iPads/Apple TVs.

Cons:

If I have to say one negative is this software works best with Mac's. Through the years the software has had issues with PC's running ProPresenter. Although I have heard that the latest ProP 6 has corrected most conflicts in Windows software, so this con may be mute by now, I don't know I stick to Mac for our media computers.

Overall: Less headaches and ease of use. Coming in on a Sunday morning and having the software works perfectly as planned.

There really isn't much to dislike. The price is competitive and a great value. The software is superb and any problems are quickly address in new updates. The abilities are almost endless

Pros: Integration with Planning Center, CCLI, built-in Bibles, PowerPoint, and more

Stage Display keeps the presenters informed about what's next, lyrics, notes, time, or anything else necessary to the service.

Control over every aspect of what's broadcast to the displays, how long a slide appears, any music cues that go along with it, videos, lyrics, animated backgrounds, and text, and more

A powerful slide editor allows for simply importing your own image or building one within ProPresenter

Building a service flow is intuitive. Individual service elements are built, then the service is arranged by dragging and dropping elements into the service flow. Including specific arrangements of songs.

Cons: There is a steep learning curve that prevented me from giving it 5 stars, but the wealth of tutorials and ease of access to these resources for improving your ProPresenter skill prevented me from giving 3 stars. Therefore, a solid 4 stars are earned.

Overall: When I began using ProPresenter, I picked up very quickly on all the features it has available. More than are really necessary for our purposes. Everything about how easy it is to make our displays flow has dramatically improved the quality of our services. ESPECIALLY Planning Center Integration. Our band director arranges his songs in Planning Center to communicate with the band, then I can import his arrangements and details directly into ProPresenter as ready-built presentations and services. From there, constructing the rest of the service is super easy. Including being able to import Bible Verses directly from the built-in Bibles. Whenever I'm not personally able to run the presentation during service, the running portion is as easy as pressing the "space" bar as necessary. All of the setup is completed beforehand. Not to mention any important announcements can be quickly broadcast as necessary. (i.e. nursery announcements...)

Pros: ProPresenter is extremely easy to use once you have a solid foundation of how things work within the software. The ability to make edits to presentations while still displaying content on screens is an absolute lifesaver. The functionality of having playlists to help organize content helps with organization, while also being able to drag and drop content easily. The interface is extremely easy to use, and is volunteer friendly. The functionality of having a stage display helps keep services and events on track due to built in clocks, messages and the ability to see content on a stage display in a stripped down format than what audience members see. Templates can also be easily set up for different items, whether it be songs, content slides, or other items. PowerPoint presentations are also easily imported into ProPresenter.

Cons: The software can sometimes become bogged down if you are playing content with large file sizes. Getting screens be recognized can also be a little bit of an issue in certain situations.

Overall: ProPresenter continues to be the go-to for our church. It's easy to use for all, has a ton of training videos, and can be as simple or complex as you need it to be. ProPresenter allows us to quickly and easily import new songs, copy playlists and there's no complicated ways of doing anything. It's really a straightforward software that anyone can use and be a pro with some practice.

Pros: ProPresenter is simple, intuitive, and extremely user friendly. Editing slides, even on the fly, is very easy to do. It makes adding motion backgrounds, audio, and video media into our worship services very easy. The ipad control is a huge bonus as well. I can control my own sermon slides from the pulpit, and not have to keep the person running the slideshow guessing. While we don't use all of the features ProPresenter has to offer (there's about a gazillion of them) it is a very solid piece of software. Other programs we have tried tended to crash, especially when adding different media elements like movies to different slides. During a church worship service, having your presentation software freeze is not ideal! We have been using ProPresenter for the past four years and have never had it freeze during worship. Can't say enough good things about it.

Cons: The in-software DVD player is not very user friendly. We have had problems with DVD's freezing (we don't use this feature during worship). It is also not easy to pause, rewind, fast forward, etc. We've had better luck just playing DVD's using a different software specific to dvd media. That's about the only negative we've seen.

Overall: It's a very stable presentation software we use at our church. Allows us to project images, movies, and lyrics during our worship services.

Pros: This is some powerful, high-level software. It has a number of features that make it easy to create beautiful presentations. The way it uses different layers to make slides is great. I can easily change backgrounds, texts, or other effects, without having to redo the entire slide. Templates are easily applied and used.

I love being to edit the slides in realtime without displaying what I'm doing on the screen. I am able to create a number of documents in my library. I can easily set song arrangements, without creating whole new slides for each different version.

ProPresenter easily integrates with planning center, which makes creating song slides easy and fast. I am able to save a large amount of time using this feature.

Perhaps the best part of ProPresenter is that I feel it saves me so much time and effort, and that I am only using a small portion of the features.

Cons: I am running this off an older MacBook Air, so the program does occasionally crash when editing or adding slides. Sometimes things can be difficult to learn how to do.

Pros: - Motion backgrounds stay constant while text changes

- Ideal for houses of worship:

- interfaces with CCLI to get lyrics for music

- interfaces with Bible applications to enter scripture

- easy jump between chorus/verse/bridge of a song to follow those leading music

- supports a stage display with limited graphics (visible to presenter(s))

- supports a mobile app to run the presentation from another computer

- Imports from other presentation software file formats

Cons: - Finicky display settings - Sometimes external display resolutions cause problems when other presentation software works fine

- Changing display settings while the application is running may cause it to crash

Overall: We use this software extensively at our University Chapel and church. It seems to be the standard for church presentation software in our area. Whereas most presentation software seems very linear (move forward or backward through slides), ProPresenter allows you to easily jump to another song or slide at the click of a button. It also gives great features to find music that might not have been part of the planned set list.

Pros: We use pro presenter for worship services at our church all through the week and pro presenter has everything we need. It has so many functions that we're barely scratching the surface of what this can do. We love the way we can categorize services in folders and have song lists, images, videos in those separate services to access easily for our sound techs. We also love how easily it works with ios devices to play on our TV. We were using planning center and projector for worship lyrics but this is way easier and quicker and has image/video options with lyrics or by themselves in a way that planning center did not.

Cons: The only negative is that sometimes the worship songs we select don't automatically download from song select.

Overall: We love pro presenter and highly recommend to anybody doing projecting in a live environment.

Pros: This software is VERY easy to learn and use which makes it helpful for training my volunteers to use it. The integration with SongSelect makes importing new songs painless and setting up templates makes it even quicker to have my content perfect in seconds.

Cons: There are occasional glitches with my stage display disappearing but I think this will be able to be fixed in a future update and it doesn't affect the quality of our production. I also wish that there would be a way to tie "props" to a specific slide in each song file so that I don't have to remember to trigger the prop in each individual song.

Overall: It has simplified my Sunday mornings and made things much less stressful preparing for our worship services.

Pros: So it really depends on your budget and what you want to accomplish, but I'm a fan of ProPresenter. I've used it in two different church settings, and I honestly don't know of another platform that can do all that ProPresenter can do. Sure - there are other ways to accomplish these goals, but you'd have to piece together several different software platforms. ProPresenter is just a one-stop shop. It does all you need done for the visual side at churches. It seems to play well with other platforms, too. It does take a little time to learn - I never received formal training, but I think it's user-friendly.

Cons: Depending on how up-to-date it is and the device/computer you're using, it can be a little clunky from time-to-time. However, I'm not sure if that's a laptop/device issue or a ProPresenter issue. It's also a little overwhelming when you first introduce this to people who have no experience with it.

Overall: I recommend it, but once again, it depends on your budget and what you really need to accomplish in your church setting.

Pros: I love this program and how versatile it is. I use it for business and at my church, so I can speak from 2 perspectives. At work, I use it to run digital signage displays around and outside of my office, with promotional materials outside, and important (realtime) company stats inside the office, like sales, active clients, etc. At my church, we use it to run multiple displays with song lyrics, Bibles, and other text, as well as other multimedia content. ProPresenter has many ways of handling these types of content, which makes it so powerful. The MIDI module is useful, because we have limited personnel, so the drummer can trigger song lyrics and other content through a MIDI drum pad whilst I run our FOH mix and lighting.

Cons: I don't like how you have to pay for certain modules, specifically the SDI/NDI, Multiscreen, and MIDI modules. Comparable systems offer those features at the same price as ProPresenter itself, or add these modules for a significantly lower price. You also have to buy additional Bibles if you plan to use versions that are not included (a lot of English language Bibles, and all the foreign language ones).

Great software! Company dedicated to making improvements. Easy to use yet powerful program.

Pros: It has all the features necessary for projection of text, graphics, and video with a great prompter screen which we use with another projector to display on the back wall. Video and graphics can be easily edited to change color, etc and video clips can be set to start and end at specific times.

Cons: Though the user interface is clean and simple; when it comes to data input, there are a few common tasks that take frequent mouse movements and clicks which should be made into keystroke shortcuts.

Overall: This software not only takes care of our projection needs in our church, it also saves time by synchronizing with another software product we use called Planning Center Online.

Pros: There are so many things I love about this app. The greatest thing is the seamless look it gives your audience. You can be creating, editing, or rearranging your presentation behind the scenes and your audience will have no idea and are only left with the beautiful presentation in front of them. They never have to see you drag a window onto the screen or see your mouse trying to click or correct something.

You can create playlist for each presentation, you can instantly look up bible verses, and it integrates with song select and planning center flawlessly.

Cons: The biggest complaint I have with Pro Presenter is for those of use who have to use it on with both a Mac and Windows computer or just a Windows computer. The Windows version of the software runs no where near as good as the version for Mac. I have had many freezes and crashed when trying to run it on windows. Even my high powered editing computer has issues with it.

Pro Presenter is the gold standard in church presentation software.

Pros: Pro Presenter is user-friendly, and has so many features which makes worship a better experience for attendees on a Sunday morning. The best part is that as the church grows (and its needs), the software has more features and additional modules that can be added.

Cons: Sometimes the updates are not seamless with 3rd party software products. The greatest challenge for us has been utilization of Keynote with Pro Presenter. To be fair, this likely has more to do with Apple rather than Pro Presenter.

Pros: ProPresenter is the best presentation software for Apple, and I'd go further to say the most stable on the market. I've use Propresenter at our church for several years and I really appreciate this product. It's user-friendly, but can go really deep for those that like to add bells and whistles. I also appreciate the tutorial videos when I'm stuck with an element of the presentation. They'll take you step-by-step to complete whatever you trying to do. Stage display is a nice feature, too.

Cons: While they have a Remote App for your iPhone or iPad to control Propresentar, it's not too helpful besides going forward and backward. I prefer Powerpoint's Presenter View as a remote, as I can see my notes and move through my presentation. Most time this isn't an issue, however, as I have someone in the Sound Booth run my presentation.

Pros: Propresenter 6 is an incredibly robust presentation software. It seems to be aimed at a church crowd, but i've used it for church and corporate events, as well as for video projection at other live music events.

There are so many features packed into this program, it's a shame that I can't use them all. At the heart of it, you can setup a presentation and throw a novice at the helm, and things will be mostly okay.

Cons: I've had issues with the program occasionally hanging on startup and requiring a force quit before it will work again. This is super sporadic and intermittent. The backgrounds/media the program comes with are kind of laughable in 2019, but I don't really think they're there for any reason other than demoing the product.

Overall: It's a consistent and reliable program with constant updates for various bugs and QOL improvements.

Pros: Once we learned ProPresenter, we found that there are very few limits to what it will do. We run three worship projectors and a confidence monitor with it, and it will allow us to isolate them or run them in unison. GREAT software. Reliable. Very few limitations.

Cons: Streaming a video from the internal web browser to the environment seems to give us some difficulty. I wish it were a little smoother to operate.

Pros: This is the cleanest church program I have every used. Everything is so crisp on the screen, everything is high quality. I love that the motion backgrounds I use are high resolution, videos play with ease. One feature our church uses a lot that seems so minuscule are countdown timers, which comes in handy a lot. At one point, we streamed directly from ProPresenter, we had logos and lower thirds available. I love how extensive the program is. There are a lot of cool feature that I have no even been able to learn yet

Cons: There are a lot of bugs, which I am sure have been fixed. Can close out at times. Sometimes motion backgrounds to not play all the way. It is recommended to really take time and get to know your way around the program so you are using it to its fullest potential.

Pros: - It is available for both Windows and Mac devices.

- Allows you to perform a large number of tasks such as presenting lyrics, videos, Bible passages in different translations, and many more.

-Although it was initially created with churches in mind, nowadays it is common to see that it is used for multimedia presentations at fairs, corporate events, sports and cultural centers, among others.

- With each update, the tools are improved, which in the long run have a considerable impact on the quality of the projects we build.

Cons: - The software is very good. However, among the points to be improved, it can be said that it is somewhat expensive and that it contains a considerable amount of modules that are sold separately, which leads to an increase in the final cost of the software.

Pros: I like that ProPresenter incorporates many different features that you can use to enhance your services. I also like that they listen to their users and update the program frequently. I believe it has become more user-friendly with each major update.

Cons: I do not enjoy that the software is seemingly stepping on its own toes at times. Meaning that when one bug is discovered, often times a new update is sent out which then causes a new bug in the program. So then you have to find new ways around the new bug, just like you did with the last bug. Renewed Vision does their best at fixing these bugs, but it seems to take many updates to do that.

Overall: I believe ProPresenter is still the best option for churches because of its overall functionality and ease of use. Most volunteers can be taught the basics of the program within a few minutes.

Pros: Upgraded to this software at our church after using Easy Worship for years, and the difference is like the difference between Note Pad in your Accessories bar and Adobe InDesign. We can do SOOO much more with this software, we don't have to worry about it crashing (which we did with Easy Worship), and the remote log-in feature means that our tech guy can set up services, even on weekends when he is out of town.

Cons: The program is pricey and carries a steeeep learning curve. It took us several weeks/a few months to get comfortable using the few features we need, and after about 18 months, we still feel like we're not even close to being able to use this software to its fullest potential. It's just a lot of program for our older, not-so-tech-savvy volunteers

Overall: Allows us to change background and use motion backgrounds for worship slides, preview upcoming slides so our musicians can see what words are coming next and easily enter and store photos and slides for our weekly announcements

Pros: MUCH better than anything else I know (powerpoint, keynote, appleTV and the like) for displaying presentations! But not without its flaws. Good if you can spend a few hours googling/youtubing how to use it to its greatest capabilities.

Cons: NOT user-friendly or intuitive. Feels difficult to remember how to do certain things and more difficult still to coach others (my slides person or people borrowing the computer) to use it and do basic things like edit slides or post messages up on the screen...or even get it to display.

I also wish you could just import powerpoint/keynote slides into a presentation instead of needing JPEGs.

Overall: We use it weekly for our church and it's great! If they worked on the above-mentioned issues, I'd be happy to give ProPresenter an A++++ grade, but as is, they're at a solid B.

Pros: The thing I love the most is all the features! You can take a boring slide and make it bright with the click of a background. The moving backgrounds really add POP to our presentations.

Cons: The thing I like least is the ease of use. It is not hard, but there are times where I have to go digging to find out how to do something. But, I am tech savvy and can figure it out. Those that are not tech savvy just need someone to show them how to do it. It is in no way difficult, just have to look sometimes.

Overall: The benefits we get are smooth running services that look professional and grab your attention. There is no lag time in transitions from one thing to the next and the features are off the charts! We have hundreds of different presentations a year and not one has to ever look the same! I cannot sing high enough praises for Propresenter!

Pros: I have been using ProPresenter for years a several different churches. Having experience working with slides, media, sound, and larger churches, I have become familiar with several programs like ProPresenter. ProPresenter is leaps and bounds better than the other options on the market. It is easy to integrate photos, slides, video, and sound seamlessly. Also, it is an intuitive program which helps with the quick teaching of new volunteers in the media departments at church.

Cons: I do not have any complaints about ProPresenter.

Overall: For a non-employed Church member, I am extremely experienced with ProPresenter. It has been a staple at the last 3 churches I have been in while living in 3 different states. I have worked with it weekly for the past 10 years.

Pros: We love this software for the functionality between audio, video, graphics and so much more. The ability to create and add fresh capability allows our teams to grow and bring new content.

Overall: Overwhelmingly positive experience to date and we would gladly recommend ProPresenter to others.

By far my favourite presenting tool for a church setting.

Pros: It does everything I need it to. Text slides are easy to edit, and I'm very thankful for the template function. So easy! Importing plans from Planning Centre is a time-saving integration. I've used it for types of events and presentations and have always found it capable of handling anything I needed it to do, from transitions to looping to video-playing to converting ugly PowerPoints.

Cons: The image/video bin has often been a struggle. It filled up too quickly, so we tried linking with folders but there were often issues with that. It can often be difficult to find the feature you're looking for. To train people, you need to get them to spend a lot of time, exploring the many functions of ProPresenter.

Pros: I love that it works as advertised. Even on our Windows machine, ProPresenter works. There are issues occasionally, but I can rely on this software working as it needs to - every week, every time.

Cons: There are the "unpolished" aspects that make me wish it was being updated more often. Some of our Scripture passages have "extra characters" when copying them into slides. Some of our preset settings don't save every time. I've been told these issues aren't on the Mac version of the software, but they do exist on the Windows version.

Overall: ProPresenter has really been a useful tool to us in our ministry setting. We use it multiple times a week on multiple computers with our "site license". It's easy to use, easy to maintain, and helpful in a variety of ways.

Best and easy to use software for me as an Audio Video lead. Functions in the software are easy.

Pros: Functions that I like most about this software are that it can be used in any device and one click can play music, video, and presentation on the screen. The interface in terms of all type of files that can be imported and then presented on the screen makes it unique and very comfortable to use. In short all in place (video, audio, backgrounds, messages, presentaitons).

Cons: One last thing is that it cost a lot of money. Compared to the features that it should cost that much. But what about not profit organization who wants this software. So they should consider all business and non-profit organization in mind then decide how much it should cost.

Overall: Smooth presentation of Audio, video and presentations.

Pros: I have used several different presentation software programs but this is by the best. The interface is great, tons of functionality, great customer support, regular updates, tons of training resources and integration with tons of other sources. It is not cheap but worth the price tag.

Cons: The entry price can be a bit steep for some churches. The software add-ons or modules are also quite expensive. It does have bugs, especially when it involves a new operating systems being introduced but they are pretty quick to fix most issues.

Overall: It's awesome. There is a learning curve but also tons of resources to help with that learning curve. Once you master the basics it runs really well and does almost anything you could need it to.

Pros: The software is easy to install and to use. The actual operation of the software is very simply and can be taught quickly and easily. The programming and setup takes a little more competency; however, most users will find that it is not a difficult challenge.

Cons: Some of the default settings are counter-intuitive. For example, the default setting is for the confidence monitor to be disabled. Also, some of the features are confusing, such as "hot folders". You can definitely tell that the software was designed to be used on a Mac OS.

Overall: With minimal instruction, most people will be able to operate the software. Programming for operation will take more time and care, but is doable for anyone with computer competency.

ProPresenter is an awesome presentation tool that is very easy to use.

Pros: ProPresenter makes running screens for worship service or gatherings very simple and straight forward. Whether you are using it to display lyrics or play videos, ProPresenter makes every thing easy and smooth.

Cons: The price for a site license is a little steep but the software is well worth the investment. We use it ALL THE TIME!

Pros: ProPresenter always makes displaying media, whether to one screen or multiple screens super simple. I love being able to import Powerpoint files directly into ProPresenter. It's such a HUGE time saver, saving you the headache of having to type everything out again.

Cons: Just like any software, occasional glitches happen and always seem to happen at the worst time. There is really nothing you can do about this in the moment except to close it down and restart.

Overall: I've been using ProPresenter for years and feel like I've watched it grow. I worked at a brand new church where we ran slides and lyrics on two TVs and now I'm on staff at a church that runs multiple screens with IMAG and ProPresenter is behind all of it!

Pros: I love the versatility and power of this program for accomplishing everything you need a church media suite to do, and I generally like the layout and user interface. It could be better but with everything it can do it's inevitable for it to be a bit of a complicated mess.

Cons: As I said, it can feel like a bit of a complicated mess because of everything that's possible with it and it can take a long time to thoroughly learn how everything works. It's easy to do something one way and mess things up in ways you wouldn't expect if you didn't fully understand how it works. As someone trying to manage a team of volunteers it can be tough to help them understand the ways they could cause problems trying to just intuitively make the changes they're thinking of without fully understanding certain nuances of the program.

Pros: I tried a few other presentation softwares before this one for our small church, and once I saw the functions and features of ProPresenter, i knew we had found what we were looking for! I love that you can edit your slide while you are presenting a different slide. I love the diversity of options and templates. The ability to show worship songs and connect them to CCLI, wow such a huge help.

Cons: There is honestly nothing about this software that i do not like!!!

Overall: Instead of needing a few different softwares to do what we need, we have saved money and time by going with ProPresenter. Such a great buy for all our various needs

Pros: The ability to use layers within our presentation is an absolute must in today's presentations. Everything looks so bland and stagnant without the ability to add even the subtlest of motion to the background.

Cons: Some of the features offered within slide preparations do not always working properly. The most noticeable is the letter spacing and line height.

Overall: ProPresenter has taken our visual screen presentation to the next level and beyond. We were using PowerPoint, and, in my opinion, there is no comparison. We have recently started integrating ProPresenter with Planning Center Online. And that is taking things to even another level. We love our choice to transition away from PowerPoint over the last few years.

Pros: The love the live editing and the layers to be able to control backgrounds forgrounds logos and audio with ease. I love the midi interface to control my lighting program on another computer with the song and or video slides. The screen blending feature is also great when creating environmental projection with multiple projectors. The remote control feature via an iPad is also great for some situations.

Cons: It does use a lot of processing power not recommended to run other applications at the same time. The midi interface is a bit sensitive but that's because of the midi network not so much the application.

Pros: ProPresenter helps you make worship more visually stunning by adding amazing backgrounds and visuals to your lyric slides. You never notice when animations "restart" because the quality that goes into the programming is great. With practice, you'll be able to seamless transition from lyrics, to a new song, and to sermon notes without any hiccups. With ProPresenter, you can make even the smallest gathering appear like a huge production.

Cons: It can be easy to throw off your layouts and organization without knowing so always check behind yourself. The learning curve can be steep if you're not familiar with presentation software so be sure to properly train new people and play around with to learn the ins and outs and functionality of the software. Be prepared to pay for newer/updated backgrounds and animations. There are some great ones that come pre-loaded but you'll begin to use all of those and want to branch out before people notice the same images coming up.

Propresenter is great affordable tool for my church, and has lots of features for its value.

Pros: The latest version allows me to change the time of each slide transition. This is very useful for our church as we have different timings for worship and sermons. The screen capture ability allows us to pull up web pages to the main screens whenever we are announcing new section on our websites. There are so many tools when it comes to editing visuals for worship, and you can create bulletins within the software that have animation.

Cons: As of now, i cannot think of any cons. Ever since the last update, all my concerns have been solved.

Overall: we can create stunning visuals and professional displays with an easy user interface

Pros: I love options the programs offers, it's really an all in one program for your needs. Modules increase functionality. Integration with other show aspects is a nice feature.

Cons: Price, while the initial cost is somewhat affordable, it's the add on module prices that are really pricy. The software is perfectly functional without additional modules, but you got to pay if you want some integration.

Overall: Overall I am very satisfied with the software. I love options the programs offers, it's really an all in one program for your needs. Modules increase functionality. Integration with other show aspects is a nice feature. It's just the module prices that really get me.

Pros: Pro-Presenter is easy to use. Having used other production softwares in the past, this has been the easiest to train volunteers on how to run the program. Renewed vision is continually working with many of the other programs that impact our planning and worship services at our church to be able to give a quality product that is always up to date.

Cons: The cost is a little high, but the product you receive is well worth it. Also along with the updates, sometimes by updating you may trigger a new issue that wasn't there before. Not the end of the world but it can be frustrating at times.

Pros: It just works. It works if you need basic text/lyrics on a screen, and can get you up and running quickly. On the other end for power users, it gives you all the tools you'd need to run your visual media on screens and to customize that however you'd like. I've used a number of similar products, and nothing comes close to ProPresenter.

Cons: My only gripe is that new releases can often be buggy. Because of that, we don't typically risk updating to the newest releases out of fear that we'll run into issues.

Overall: The go-to tool for getting screen content organized and run in a church setting.

Pros: Propresenter is user friendly. So easy to make global changes; create and edit the slides; and works well with the other systems we use in our weekly services

Cons: When first upgrading to the newest version it tends to be glitchy and does not save the previous version with the template changes that were made. Also duplicates the slides when upgrading to the newest version.

Pros: We moved to ProPresenter on version 3 or 4 and haven't looked back. The PC version used to be rocky, but is fairly solid these days. We are primarily Mac based and are solid. Love the site license for our larger church and the ability to resource many PCs/Macs with a single purchase.

Cons: Some of the features over the years have led to a more complicated user interface and volunteers are often lost in the fray if we have to do anything "advanced" beyond running a service. We centrally setup everything and volunteers just have to play back what's there.

Pros: Easy to learn with multiple tutorials, Many features to enlarge our AV ministry

Cons: There are layers of complexity with ProPresenter that can seem overwhelming to an untrained volunteer, however, you can customize to fit the volunteer culture of the organization. Sadly, Microsoft PowerPoint has decided to not fully integrate with ProPresenter...which has been the cause of much angst with our Pastoral staff!

Overall: ProPresenter was a BIG step up from Easy Worship in terms of functionality and features. Once our team of volunteers became aquainted with ProPresenter it has been a great next step for our church.

Pros: This software is very dependent upon the user; I am not very well versed in this kind of software, as I am a volunteer at my church, and only help in the presenting, not the creating of the media, etc. Therefore, if a problem arises in the moment, it is relatively difficult for me to navigate and find the answer quickly, as I am not only unfamiliar with it, but there are so many options that I get confused and overwhelmed. However, as an observer of those who do create the media, I can say that it is easily navigated by those seasoned in practice. Not really a userfriendly product, but once you are experienced, it can be utilized well to perform what is necessary.

Cons: there are too many options available at the outset, rather than the few common ones, with the advanced options hidden. that could create a much more user-friendly product, in my opinion.

ProPresenter was the only excuse I ever needed to use an Apple product....

Pros: ProPresenter is very user friendly making it easy to train my fill in at church. Being user friendly doesn't make it simple though, because I was able to add feature after feature to make outstanding presentations for specials.

Cons: The only thing for me that could have been considered a con was that I thought it was only available for Mac, but a friend told me that it comes in Windows too, so I can truly say that I have found no cons with this product.

Overall: Can create any kind of presentation that can be imagined which really steps worship up a notch.
