VOLUNTEERING IN MEDIA
The Media Ministry is always looking for volunteers to assist with the many media aspects during services and other events. This ministry is only effective because of the volunteers who are engaged and serving. If you already have some media experience, or are willing to be trained, it’s a great teamwork oriented environment to get involved within the church, serve the Lord, and meet new people.
If you have any questions or want more information about the Media Ministry, please contact the Media Director, Rob Sabonis, at RSabonis@Bethany-AG.org.

The Media Ministry is responsible for many of the multimedia video productions associated with Bethany Assembly of God, which includes the weekly informational video announcements or “Bethany News Network” (BNN). Using professional grade HD video cameras, audio recording devices, and nonlinear digital editing equipment, we produce professional videos of event promotions, advertisements, testimonies, and more.
The Media Ministry is responsible for displaying the BNN, worship song lyrics, scripture messages, and any other special or informational videos or graphics onto the large screen in the Lighthouse auditorium during services. These presentations are controlled by Media booth volunteers, using sophisticated multimedia equipment. These Presentation Technicians control the projections using Easy Worship presentation software.
Our video production team controls three remote HD video cameras located within the Lighthouse auditorium during our services, taking commands from the Video Director who assembles the footage into live edited productions. These live productions are recorded to a computer’s hard drive and archived, as well as live streamed on Bethany’s website, FaceBook, and our YouTube channel. These services are uploaded to Bethany’s website archive can be viewed at your convenience under the Media drop-down menu.
The Media Ministry’s lighting technicians control the sanctuary house lights, TV lights, colored archway, light bars and intelligent spotlights above the media booth. They work in coordination with the Presentation Technician to color coordinate the colored lights with the animated screen backgrounds. These lights help add color and effects to our services and special events.
SOUND & PODCAST PRODUCTION
Our Sound Department is responsible for the audio during all services, as well as producing audio Podcasts of the church services and other audio recordings. Using state-of-the-art soundboards, microphones, amps, speakers and other equipment, the audio technicians constantly make adjustments during every service, both in the sanctuary Media Booth and in the Media Center, to make sure your audio experience at Bethany is a pleasant one.
Our Service videos and audio messages can be found under the Media dropdown menu. We record our Sunday services to videos and audio podcasts, and record our Wednesday evening services as audio podcasts.
