For about a year I have been monitoring rightnow Media's Bible Study Library resource, but didn't feel like it was the right time to jump in until now. To be honest, I waited too long. I should have jumped in a year ago and would have saved our church financially locking in the price from a year ago and gotten this tool in the hands of our congregation even sooner. Other than waiting too long, I have no regrets about jumping into rightnow Media's Bible Study library and can't be more excited! About a month ago we began pursuing this option pretty seriously and launched it to our congregation just this past week. Generally when I release a new technology like this I get nervous about all of the email of technical difficulties and such. My email did blow up this week, but with very few technical requests. My email box was filled with thank you messages from congregants thrilled about this new tool. Before I share more about what I love about the Bible Study Library, take a look at this video:
What an incredible tool rightnow has created for the church and at an affordable rate for EVERY church ( take a look at their pricing guide here)! Here are some of the things that I really love about this resource:
- Affordable- I don't know how much your church spends on curriculum, but this tool is not only affordable but will save us money immediately on curriculum expenses.
- Quality Content- with 2,000+ videos in this library it is packed with quality content from a variety of great publishers. We actually found that about 80% of our current dvd curriculum library that we have in our library at CBC are included in this video library.
- Best Tech- the church often is behind when it comes to technology, but this tool truly utilizes the best in technology making videos available to everyone whether they are using a smart phone, tablet, laptop, desktop, or connected tv device. It's awesome!
- Availability- getting curriculum in the hands of our members can be very complicated and difficult for us and for them. This tool truly makes these video resources available to our entire congregation both locally and globally at their convenience (and ours)!
- Ease of Use- almost everyone is used to Netflix and using this similar model makes it easy for just about everyone to use!
- The People- as we researched this product and fell in love with it, we found that the people behind the product are even better than the product itself. Steve Solstad and the others at rightnow are truly the best and passionate about resourcing the church!
