Photo, Video, and Audio Release Form

Dear Friend of Oceanside, 

 

We live in a digital age and these days most people’s first encounter with a church is not in person. Instead, the “first impressions” of church for unchurched people is through livestream, website, Facebook, and user reviews and photos on Google and social media. 

People are less impressed these days with cool graphics and generic or stock photos. They want to see real people doing real things before they come to our church. 

 

For the sake of reaching our community better, would you please provide the following consent to help us improve the way we connect others with our church. Your photos will usually not be identified with your name (and therefore will not be searchable). As a courtesy, we will still try to seek your permission for media that prominently features you.
