Give up on trying to sell anything to churches. Most of the time they won’t even pay their in-house people, so the idea that they’ll pony up cash for an outsider to come in is next to nil.
I hate to admit it, but I’m contributing to that problem. I’ve been doing video for our church for a while now, using my own gear, on my own time, and not getting a dime for it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I don’t love helping them out, but it’s sad when now two years’ budgets have been passed and spent, and despite my pleadings no budget for any multimedia production has been added at all. I suppose there’s no need to buy the cow if you can get the milk for free.
