Robert Blansfield - Christ's Promise UCC

ROBERT BLANSFIELD

Technical Specialist

By July 2020, the realization that the pandemic lockdown was going to last longer than first thought inspired Robert to enhance our church's online presence in order to stay relevant and keep our members informed and connected. With cameras, microphones and software, he was able to improve our live streaming with a more professional quality. (Street Warriors of Central Fl, Inc)
