3 Effective Scripture Slide Designs

Sharing passages from the Bible is one of the most important things churches do in their services, but it can be difficult to know how to properly show these Scriptures on our screens. After looking at some of the best slides, we have chosen these three designs as the best models based off of layout and overall functionality.

1. Center Aligned With Boxed Reference

2. Left Aligned With Simple Reference

Important Tips To Keep In Mind:

• The purpose of displaying these passages on your screens is so that people can follow along. Don’t let your design preferences compromise their readability.

• Display passages immediately before they will be read by the speaker. If only one passage will read at a time, only display one on a slide. If they will read 2-3, try to include each of these on the slide if space permits.

• Including the specific translation that the speaker is reading from can be helpful for those taking notes and to give clarity to those unfamiliar with various versions.

    I love the designs, but is there a place to find the templates for these that will work with ProPresenter? I can build them, but the time involved doesn’t make it ideal.

    • E.B. Dean says:

      I agree. ProPresenter does have templates available to use with Scripture, but not the ability to place the Scripture reference in a different font, size, placement, etc … If i have more than a couple Scriptures, (and we’re Presbyterian so I always do,) it just isn’t worth the time involved to make it pretty.
