Many churches use photo and/or video of some kind and in many places but do they have a policy in place for that?
If your church does not have a policy in place for their church photography and/or videoing then you can download the sample below and use it as a tool to customize a policy specifically for your church.
This policy is specific for churches who might photo and/or video a lot in their church services, events and even on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. and have these photos and/or videos available for the public to watch and view.
