I need your help and thoughts. As churches we should be good stewards with our resources. We should do our best to spend wisely and not abuse what we are given. That leads me to the question of the day. Should churches rent (long term) A/V equipment or purchase it to own? Is long term rental more cost effective in the long run when you consider maintenance, care, and technology update speed? Should we buy the large items to effectively own them because of the constant outflow of cash with renting? Does the flexibility of renting make more sense for changing looks? How does budget play into the matter? Small or large budget what do you think the best bet is?
Here is the article that has spurred on the questions – Production Gear: Rent or Buy?
What are your thoughts? I’m curious. Join the conversation below.
