Media Policy

Media Policy

At Greater Christ Baptist Church (GCBC), we embrace the use of photos, video, and other media to share the Gospel of Jesus, provide guests with information about what to expect when they attend our worship services and events, and communicate our mission via our web site, social media, and other digital/print media to people who do not attend church.

Accordingly, photography, videography, live streaming, and other recordings may be utilized during GCBC services, ministry activities, classes, and other programs/events, and GCBC may use the media recorded at these events in materials produced by or for the church, including but not limited to worship guides, banners, brochures, newsletters, flyers, other printed/electronic materials, and digital or social media.

By participating in GCBC’s services, ministry activities, classes, programs and events:

1) you consent to be recorded as described above;
2) you grant your permission for GCBC to use recordings containing your image, likeness, voice and/or statements, without compensation, credit, or other consideration to you, for GCBC’s promotion, publicity, and other purposes, throughout the world and in perpetuity; and
3) you agree to release, hold harmless, and indemnify Greater Christ Baptist Church from any and all liabilities and claims involving the use of your image, likeness, voice, or statements.

While we reserve the right to photograph and record church events, we strive to ensure that photographs and videography are used in safe and positive ways.  We will not knowingly and intentionally post any photo, video, or other recording that would be embarrassing, objectionable, or hurtful to any clearly, personally identifiable individual in the recording.

Additionally, if you see a photo on our website or social media page (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) that includes you or your child and would like it removed, please contact the church at  Please note we cannot remove your image from video or live stream messages.  Please also understand that Greater Christ Baptist Church has no control over the recording, use, and posting of images or other media by non-church staff (e.g., church members, community members, news outlets, etc.) and no ability to remove such media from publications, including internet or social media sites, that are not run by Greater Christ Baptist Church.
