vhsA youth worker recently asked, “Was curious to know where everyone gets video clips for their messages/programs/etc?” It is kind of a no brainer to look on youtube and Vimeo but it is so hard to find credible content.  I do not have a secret formula for looking up great videos for messages but a couple of tips are to…

  • Follow the accounts of people you like
  • Save links your friends and students send
  • Save links from videos that go viral

Saving links in a trusty place (evernote, note app, word doc, etc) can help you find usable content in the future. I mentioned wimp.com yesterday, it is just one of many sites that post tons of videos that are on the viral radar. Do a search for top youtube videos, you will have days of content to sift through and you may find some gems. **Not all videos are above board, guard your heart!**

Here is a list of sites I have used content from. These sites are ministry focused and have great video illustrations, mini-movies, and intros. Try clicking through the list and search their content, most of these videos have a price but if it helps you communicate your message it is probably worth it.

What sites are you using to get video clips for messages?

Here’s the final and full version of The Book series video that Parker made for our student-version of the 40 Days in the Word campaign. So, so good!
