I am trying to get a live TV feed to 2 TVs in my church. One is about 200 feet from source and the other about 20 feet. Do I need a booster on the longer run?

I moved your post to the Entertainment: TV forum.

By "live feed" do you mean feeding the TVs' A/V inputs from a camera or video switcher? With good cables you won't require a booster. Use RG6 quad cable for the video and two shielded cables (sample: West Penn 292) for the audio.

Or do you plan to inject a modulated signal into the existing cable system? In that case, if the signal looks good on the existing TV that's 200 feet away, your injected signal should be fine without a booster. Be careful to match the signal strength of your modulator to the existing cable or you'll cause issues with the picutre quality. You'll also need a channel elimination filter at the point where the cable provider's line enters the building.
