For Sunday morning sermons, there’s no doubt that displaying the pastor’s key points and scriptures on your screen helps the congregation to follow along. However, your ability to present this content in a way that looks clean and organized will ultimately decide whether it’s beneficial to the message or just plain distracting. I’ve seen countless churches with the capability to display presentations, but who struggle to make it look good. Because of this, I’ve created these simple, easy-to-use sermon slide templates for Keynote, PowerPoint, and ProPresenter. They are fully customizable, so you could easily use these multiple times with just a few adjustments. It’s super easy to change colors, backgrounds, and plug in your content.
Quick Tip: For my normal workflow, I typically prepare my sermon slides in Keynote, export as JPEG images, and then import into ProPresenter. This gives features like various shapes and masking (such as the photo slide), and also keeps continuity when using multiple computers.

You will need to download these free fonts for these templates to function properly:
League Gothic and Open Sans
Free templates can seem like a good deal. And there are many free slide templates available for PowerPoint. But be aware that some free templates are limited in the number of slide designs they offer. Also, free slide templates for PowerPoint may not include any kind of support or help. If you run into trouble, you'll be on your own. Drive your templates with MIDI Out in Playback. MultiTracks Cloud pairs perfectly with our new ProPresenter files by allowing the upload of MIDI Cues to trigger slides in real-time during track playback. Add MIDI Cues that connect Playback to ProPresenter and press play. Your spacebar days are over.

How To Add A Background To The Video/Image Bin In ProPresenter
The Video/Image Bin is the location for managing your media within ProPresenter.
To access the Video/Image Bin, click on the Video/Image icon in the toolbar, use the keyboard shortcut (Control-V for Mac, Control-Shift-V for PC), or select it from the View menu. Once the bin is open, you will find it below the slide area. The first time you open this, it will be empty, but once you have started adding content it will begin to look like the image above.
The Video/Image Bin is made up of two parts: the left column contains all of your playlists, folders, and tags; the right column contains all of your media cues.
You can add media to the Video/Image Bin from your hard drive by dragging the files into ProPresenter or by clicking on the plus button below the thumbnail section.

How To Add A Background To A Slide In ProPresenter
Backgrounds can also be added to directly to each slide in a presentation. This is particularly useful for establishing your chosen backgrounds ahead of time.
To assign a still or motion background to a slide, simply drag and drop a background of your choice from the Video/Image Bin, or from Finder (Mac) and File Explorer (PC) to an individual slide.

When assigning a background to a song, it’s best practice to place a background on the first slide. Once a background is established on the first slide, it will continue to show behind each lyric slide you click until it is changed. Therefore, you do not need to place a background on every slide of the presentation–only the first.
If you would like to use more than one background for a presentation, simply drag and drop a new background onto the slides where you’d like to see the change. Some churches choose to use multiple backgrounds per song, such as for the chorus, to emphasize certain moments.
