The transformation of church ministries to live streaming their video sermons online are certainly beneficial. Unlike ten years ago, folks are extremely busy, but if ministries can still get parishioners to access sermons on the run, it’s a win for everyone. Whether they are on vacation or off doing things with family, their ministry is right alongside on their cellular devices. The rat race of life should not be a factor. Just pull out your smart device and you are there. This is the reason live streaming over the internet has become so popular. People don’t have to miss out on a church service even if they are in another county. Virtually all of these ministries accept offering on their websites so ministries won’t miss out it members are not at the physical location. They could give virtually. For these reasons, live streaming is increasing, which has contributed to the growth of mobile video by and large. Individuals are more frequently watching content on their smartphones and tablets, which has forced companies to change their approaches. Live streaming is a focal point for large companies. They are projecting streaming videos to be a top promotion in the future. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, and YouTube invest significant sums of money into building and enhancing their very own live stream platforms, according to the Financial Times.
One of the HUGE thing that’s helping video content to become so well liked is the spiking of mobile video viewing. Google among other search engines are looking at how contents fits on mobile devices. Church targeted audience is focus on young and on the go people. As video becomes mobile-first, you will continue to see large online companies and churches switch more to video content. Our organization is broadcasting to Facebook, Ustream and YouTube. I expect this to be more and more common for places of worships. Reaching young people is a huge segment of the population that stream videos. This means the preacher must be articulate with a personality that they can feel during Live streaming.
Live streaming can be a low-cost, easy-to-implement solution which not just expands reach for religious organizations but strengthens existing communities. In the modern world, churches are like any other businesses competing with other churches for hearts, minds – and ever-diminishing attention spans.
Figures show live video is more irresistible to audiences: 80% would prefer to watch live video than read written text, for example, while Facebook estimates that nearly 80% of online audiences are busy watching videos. Broadcasting via social media also facilitates sharing, providing churches with an invaluable tool for spreading the word; social video generates 1200% more shares than text and images combined.
The Live chat options is really important for religious leaders which allow someone from your broadcasting church to interact with followers right away. It’s also easy to apply online donations during or after broadcasts, helping religious bodies fund their growth while enabling followers to play a role by contributing. Simultaneous multilingual streams enable worshipers to view services in their own personal language, expanding reach exponentially. While on demand video catch-up means messages endure long after the broadcast has ended.
All of these features are easy to implement and let churches not only to enhance their live streams and also add meaning and value for their followers. Some organizations are expanding their teaching in other ways.
There are those large churches that have been using this technology for many years now and are expanding their offering. You will find new smaller organizations that just start their live online church streaming ministries videos broadcast. The low cost now is helping small budget churches to compete with larger more popular churches. This has help organizations everywhere to use their online ministry as an outreach tool. Most major platforms are currently offering some form of video archived or live streaming. According to one of the major internet backbone carrier. Their projection is by 2020 video streaming will be 80 % of the web traffic.
Any ministry that would want to outreach on the internet and in their community must not ignore the power of some type of live or archived video storage online. You may use it to do many things. One may use these videos for rest homes that have a worship hall. This provide them with the abilities to host church service on location which will get rid of the need to transport their members to a church. The same is feasible for Ronald McDonald House, senior centers, foreign missions and a whole host of community outreach programs.
Excellent quality online church broadcast is a wonderful way to draw new people to your ministry. Churches that are growing and thriving with live streams ought to have a great presentation. It is important to make effort to put out the most effective presentation to the audience. Because if it is not of a excellent level you will turn potential new members off. So it is tremendously crucial that you make sure the presentation is at an extremely high level because it has to be able to hold the attention of the people who newly discover your ministry online. Pointing your live feed to a banner or having those who cannot sing or speak may have worked or hold people in the physical church, but not people online. They’re going to easily move on to another church website that will give them significantly better presentation. It doesn’t matter your denomination. Catholic, Baptist, Christian – no denomination, Pentecostal, Churches of Christ, Nondenominational, Evangelical, Church of God, Holiness/Holy, Full Gospel, Independent Christian Church, Born Again or any other name that name Christ as their personal savior, the broadcast has to be perfect or else new people will not stay after they tune in.
When your live broadcast is appealing, then there are benefits you will enjoyed. First individuals will give to your ministry because people like when churches or businesses are well organized. You will definitely draw new members because people love to be part of something good. Your current members will refer families and friends to the ministry because it makes them proud to be part of something good. They will post links of your to social sites and send it in emails to friends, family, co-workers and everyone they know. If your members are excited, their excitement will rub off on their friends. This will even go further than just online. Once new members start visiting your physical location your members will spread their enthusiasm to them which will get them to come and join that ministry.
If everything is aligned as per the above recommendations, I think your ministry proliferates locally and nationally. Streaming Churches Online would love to broadcast your ministry on our website and give you the notoriety your ministry deserved to spread the word of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
A short while ago churches that were on the internet and streaming live were medium to mega churches. Initially you would need lots of money to acquire the encoders and the equipment that you would need to be able to go live. What a difference a few years have made! Today anyone and everyone is live streaming their churches. Thanks God for small encoders which are a lot cheaper and smaller.
There’s a new challenge coming for churches that are streaming live via the internet. Many of these churches have invested heavily into websites and equipment, but haven’t realized there may be more to getting new customers online than simply streaming. If your website was not generating new visitors or you weren’t getting a plethora of new customers to your site prior to live streaming or archiving your church services. They’ll likely won’t find your website after you start broadcasting on the web. Word of mouth is good, but no one should limit their church growth in this digital age just to the folks they know. With the archived and On-demand video streaming increasing churches must find ways to tap into this up and coming booming trend.
The real key to being successful for all websites is to be able to be found by
customers or potential members using keywords searching for what you are offering on the 1st few pages of search engines, Google, Bing, Yahoo and all other google. Let’s think this through. When you are selling cameras and you have lots of other websites selling cameras, how will your business site get to the front of the line so potential customers can find your page with the cameras you are selling?
That’s where Streaming Churches Online can help your preaching ministry. We don’t just help churches stream online. We get new business every day on our website looking for church related news and videos. They found our site not just thru word of mouth, which is a great thing. They are finding us thru search phases according to what they are looking for on churches that are live streaming their services online. Visitors who are looking for words with online church or if they type in live church online they will be able to find our site. These are steps that church administrators should research to find out where they are in search. Unfortunately most church administrators only believe all they have to do is start streaming and the potential new member shows up. This is the furthest thing from the truth. Most of the times when we mentioned these things to churches they look up their church by typing their church name in major search engines and their church come to the top of that search engine they believe things are going well. For the most part, some of the people we talked to seems satisfied that their ministry name is on a search engine. Unfortunately people find it hard to make the connection as to when they are looking for a Plummer online. If you knew the name of the Plummer you would just call that company. What one would normally type in is “best Plummer in Philadelphia” for example. This is no difference to a search engine when you are looking for a church. Just typing a church name and believe someone else is going to find your ministry is believing your ministry has great name recognition and everyone on the web is aware of your church. One question we always ask potential customers; how many people on the web know your church name? Unless you are spending plenty of money to raise your church name recognition, your church name recognition is low. Unless you happen to have a very popular ministry where there is some other platform that is driving people to inquire about your website then you will need better marketing for church growth.
That is where Streaming Churches Online can help your ministry. We will advertise your ministries online by you live streaming or achieving your sermons with us.
