    Brothers and sisters,

    Our church is now entering the screen/projector era of worship ministry. The question we have is, which software package should we buy to use to assemble/project things like song lyrics? We don't have a worship pastor (or other leader) who is knowledgable about such things.

    I've gotten two recommendations:

    1) MediaShout
    2) SongShowPlus


    Anyone able to help me discern which is better? Our budget is healthy enough to buy either program. Thanks!

    Both will be supported by some here.

    A couple of odds & ends:

    as of now, I know media shout will NOT run with Windows Vista, so keep that in mind. Dunno about SSP.

    What are you currently doing, presentation-wise? PowerPoint? Nothing yet?

    Nothing yet.

    We're buying a new computer at the same time, so I assume it will be running Vista.

    I have used MediaShout, Songshow Plus, and EasyWorship. Of the three, the most user-friendly for a non-computer guru or musician is definitely EasyWorship. I would definitely check it out as well.
