Submitting a short video to Mt. Carmel

We are looking for your faith stories to share on Facebook and the Mt. Carmel website. Share where you’ve seen God this week, your favorite Bible story or share a short children’s message. What would you like to share with the Mt. Carmel community? What’s your good news? Drop us a video!

To make this process easier, we’ve put together tips to help you out.

  • Videos must be under 4 minutes.
  • Please note, we will not be editing them in any way so what you send is what we post.
  • Don’t include video or music clips unless they are original and created by you.
  • Make sure you’re close to the microphone and check to make sure the sound is loud and clear when you’re done recording.
  • Film in good lighting! Don’t put yourself in front of a bright window, light or reflective surface. Most cameras don’t compensate for the bright light behind you, leaving your face in shadows. Sometimes setting a lamp somewhere in front of you (and even removing the shade) can give you better lighting.
  • Be aware of what is behind you. Does a plant make you look like you have on a weird hat? Maybe move it or shift position. Also, don’t stand directly in front of a wall. Take a few steps out (or scoot your chair forward) to help hide dark shadows.

**Please remember: This video will be public and visible to everyone. Please consider this if you include your children in your video or wish to have a message from your children included online.**
