Welcome to The New World of Ministry:
Live streaming has provided many people with the chance to join in the celebration and offers never seen flexibility for church goers.
The reasons why you’d choose to broadcast could be that you want to reach those followers who are sick or injured, too old to make it in person or people traveling who want to continue to participate in their own faith community.
You can increase the number of active participants in the church community, and possibly even the attendance of the church by accommodating private worshipers and members who rarely attend the brick-and-mortar church, but, would watch the services from the comfort and privacy of their home.
Stretch Your Reach:
- Expand Your Ministry with No Geographical Boundaries.
- Convert Site Visitors into Active Members of your church.
- Reach current members and site visitors.
- Increase donations and tithing.
- Minimize member attrition.
Hosting a live-stream broadcast is also a great solution for outreach to anyone who cannot attend due to difficulty or distance. It’s becoming more common to watch a live worship service when hospitalized or when living abroad. ‘Snow-birds’ can now stay connected to their online local church.
Facebook Live allows you to broadcast for up to four hours continuously, making it a great fit for even extended services.
