  • ACF Video License Not Renewed by the BCM

    February 09, 2016
    Greetings in Christ. We trust that the Lord is doing great things through your local ministry. 
    As you know, the EMC national/international budget was not met in 2015, so adjustments need to be made in 2016. It is difficult to make decisions. One that affects your congregation is the Audio Cine Film license that allowed EMC churches to show films or video clips. 
    Audio Cine Films' Public Performance Copyright Site License (B) expired on Jan. 31, 2016. At its meeting on Feb. 2, 2016, the Board of Church Ministries decided not to renew the license. 
    The video service is helpful, but the BCM needs to reduce its budget. Should your local church decide to use the ACF service in future, your local church is now responsible to cover all of the fees involved.
