Media is a driving force in today's culture and here at Cypress we have sought to expand and grow our Media Ministry. Our goal is to enhance worship through technology and to extend the Word of God to those not physically present in our Worship Center on Sunday morning. To accomplish this we draw upon the multiple talents of a dedicated team who selflessly give of their time and effort to ensure the best possible worship experience for our members and guest. As a team we place a high priority on transparency so that our presence goes unnoticed. Opportunities are always available for anyone interested in joining our team. The only requirement is a drive to serve the Lord while using technology.

Controlling technical adjustments remotely allows the camera operator to pay closer attention to the composition of the scene.
