In the church, it seems that budgets are always tight, there’s never enough time, yet our desire to be excellent is never ending. One of the things we’ve started to do this year is supply you and the creative local church with FREE RESOURCES that will help you be better at who God has made you to be. Ministry was never meant to be alone, and we want to be that person to lock arms with you and support your calling and creative gifts!
“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”
That phrase is a quote from Helen Keller. I am sure most know who she was but this statement epitomizes so much of what we in this community strive to do. Here at SALT, we don’t just want to say we’re a community, we want to actually become a community. So we have put together a list of 8 resources that we believe are helpful and the best part…..Did we mention they are FREE already? Oh, yeah. We did!
Here are 34+ fully, editable pro-presenter templates and lower thirds templates, created by the SALT Community. There are dark and light versions of each template (which results in 60 useful option) as well as 10 lower third templates to use if you’re doing IMAG. This is also one of our most popular free resources, so you know it’s going to be worth your while!
MediaShout 6 Templates
For those that use MediaShout we have created this resource for you. Similar to the ProPresenter templates we have created 22 MediaShout v6 templates. There are light and dark versions so you will get over 40 useful options. Also included are 1o lower third templates if your doing IMAG or on-screen names. Every template in this bundle is fully editable.
Events, Conferences, Gatherings take a lot of time and prep. There are many details to nail down and finalize and sometimes it can be overwhelming. The SALT Conference has put together this Checklist to help guide you in putting together your own list of needs for your next event.
Volunteer Training Automation
If you are a SALTu member then this is a perfect resource. You will find a step by step guide on using the automation feature with Mailchimp and in addition we layout a curriculum for you to give to your volunteers to help in their training.
Brand Style Guide
This resource was a huge help for our preparation for SALT16. Our Creative Director, Sarah Rivero, created this roadmap for all of our teams to follow. It allowed everyone from marketing to design to have the opportunity to stay cohesive. We hope that you can use this free resource as a reference point when you are creating your next campaign whether it be for a church re-brand or for your next upcoming teaching series.
SALT16 Production Brief
From vision to execution this brief is a detailed guide on how SALT16 came together. Covering all areas and writing things out are key in planning the look and feel of a stage. This brief covers everything from audio to equipment used for staging.
SALT15 Stage Design Brief
If you were at SALT15 you probably remember the 5 different sets we created for 5 main sessions. We had some many emails and call outs for how we created some of those looks so we decided we would great this guide. It contains the look and then breaks down how it was created and what materials were used as well as a cost breakdown. Don’t miss this jam-packed free resource!
SALT16 Backstage Tech Videos
Nick Rivero, Experiences Director, put together 8 videos that take you behind the scenes of SALT16. He will show you everything from the Kinetic Lights and Projection Mapping to the Interactive wall that was used in the SALT Store.
