For many years, our church had used a Worship Roadmap process to construct the the detailed order of worship for a service. This involved a Word document which was passed around the worship team (Pastor, Music Director, AV tech, Song Leader) with multiple revisions, then copy/pasted into a set of PowerPoint slides for projection during the service. This was a time-consuming process that needed refinement, and that is the main reason a search for a better method was undertaken. After trying out multiple worship software projection packages, the Faithlife Proclaim software was selected as it had the necessary features to minimize the ‘touch’ required to create slides for worship service use.

Additional web-based software was developed to allow automatic creation of a Worship Roadmap for the worship team based on the slide content, so the worship team could still have overall visibility to the service order and AV techs could have the proper cues for actions. In essence, the process is now to collaboratively create projection-ready worship slides, and a worship roadmap is automatically produced thereby eliminating a lot of clerical work in the process.

The scripts also include a utility to enter song lyrics/data into a web form and create an OpenLP/OpenSong .XML file for easy import to Proclaim. This allowed easy conversion of our Word-based song library to Proclaim.

The software is open-sourced at

The Notes and Cue tabs are used to contain extra content for liturgy, AV cues and/or stage instructions.

The roadmap is generated from an uploaded Backup Presentation .prs file.
