On today’s Tech, No Babel: AV Rental: Why you should look for a rental house before you need it

What happens if the pastor comes to you and says, “We need to live-stream out upcoming retreat,” or “Can we get better video equipment for a guest speaker we have coming in?” Do you have a response? Can you tell him how much it will cost, even roughly?

Having the numbers means that you can immediately say, “I think we can, but it will be in the neighborhood of $500 for the week” or “I don’t think $50 is going to cut it for what you want because the cheapest rental I found was about 4x that.”

You also have a knowledge of what is available so that for special occasions you can suggest something to “take it up a notch.” Once you’ve done that, your pastor might find a way to get that equipment for other special occasions and for more often.
