Hand Drawn Lyrics: From Paper to Projector
How to create hand drawn lyrics for ProPresenter
"I was extremely impressed by the quality of Cody’s instruction. He gives great detail on the tools he uses, as well exact steps in Photoshop and ProPresenter. This course even includes a free download of hand drawn lyrics for over 40 songs!"

Hand drawn lyrics may seem like a cool fad that all the hipster churches are doing, but I have found that there is something powerful about handwriting. Like receiving a hand written thank you note, seeing something hand written communicates care and connects you to the writer.
In a worship context this is still the case. After we hand drew the lyrics for a special service, I received so much positive feedback from our church about how they were able to focus on worshiping more and how much more engaging the worship experience was that we have now implemented hand drawing all of our lyrics. It’s actually an interesting paradox of how a seemingly more distracting element has actually created more focus.
So, if you feel this is something you would like to try, here is my step-by-step process of how I accomplish this and also some resources to help you get started.
"We loved the simplicity of this course, it really makes creating your own hand drawn lyric slides less daunting. Cody gives step-by-step instruction walking you through the entire process from creation to configuring stage display."
