Create animated videos – Powtoon

What PowToon says about themselves

Make Youth Ministry fun by bringing “Awesomeness” into the church. Create animated videos and presentations as easy as PowerPoint to help you inspire, engage and present with a WOW.


Engage, explain and and sell with impact using just a short, simple PowToon. They’re proven to be more effective than any other form of video or text communications to grab attention in the workplace.

There is a free version of Powtoon, which is essential, because the paid features are insanely expensive.

I give Powtoon a two thumbs up.
