I received an iPad as a gift, and want to use it with our youth group, but have no idea how. - MinistryQuestions.com | Ministry questions, answers, advice, and input from other ministry workers :: Answer

Keynote for presentations. There are other presentation apps that convert your ppt to pdf. So if you don't have any actions or movies in your slideshow, the alternatives to keynote would work. I teach from my iPad sometimes. I have my notes in Pages or in another note app. Of course, it's nice to have a Bible on there. My iPad is jailbroken so I can display anything on my iPad to the screen--i.e., scripture in my bible apps and other things.

I should mention I have an original iPad. Hopefully iPad 2 will be jailbroken soon to allow for displayout of everything.

There are many great uses for using the iPad in ministry. I'm compiling a new website to share these ways at www.ipadinministry.com

Here are the iPad apps I use to make YM life simpler:
Glo Bible - great for supplementing teaching with pictures/maps/videos, etc.
Wunderlist - great for task managment, syncs across devices
Action Method - Project Management, good for keeping track of those bigger projects I'm working on.
Square - Accept credit/debit payments for events on the iPad
Dropbox - all my notes/sermons available all the time
Pages - lesson outlines
Keynote - slides/presentations

We also picked up an AppleTV so I can beam YouTube videos or music to the TV/sound system. Very convenient.

Congrats on the iPad, you'll keep finding more and more uses for it I'm sure. Awesome to see you looking for ministry applications, great mindset!

I agree with 212shane. There are so many different ways to use that for ministry related purposes. Once you get it set up with keynote you can use it to create your slides/backgrounds and then wirelessly control them. You could also use the iPod part for all of your music needs. You might also consider going green and using it for your sermon notes, small group discussion questions, etc. It could become your eReader for all of your research and studying for messages and lessons. The options are limitless! Congrats on awesome gift! I'm hoping to get one one day.

Get Keynote & iMovie. Also, I just discovered Videoliscious...very easy way to make videos from pictures, especially for posting to Facebook. There's plenty more, but that's a start.
