The transformation of church ministries to live streaming their video sermons online can be hugely beneficial. Unlike ten years ago, quite a few people are extremely busy, but if ministries can continue to get parishioners to access sermons on the road, it’s a win for all. Whether they are on vacation or off doing things with family, their ministry is right alongside on their phones. The rat race of life should no longer be a factor. Just take out your smart device and you are there. That is why live streaming over the internet has become ideal. 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 can give virtually. For these reasons, live streaming is booming, which has contributed to the growth of mobile video collectively. Lots of people are more frequently watching content on their smartphones and tablets, which has forced companies to change their approaches. Live streaming is a big focal point for big companies. They are projecting streaming videos to be a top promotional tool in the future. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, and YouTube invest significant sums of money into building and enhancing their own live stream platforms, as stated by the Financial Times.
One of the HUGE thing that’s helping video content to become famous is the spiking of mobile video viewing. Google together with 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 notice large online companies and churches switch more to video content. Our company is broadcasting to Facebook, Ustream and YouTube. I expect this to start to be more and more common for places of worships. Reaching adolescents 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 only serves to 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 focus.
Figures reveal that live video is more appealing to audiences: 80% would rather 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 enable someone with the broadcasting church to interact with followers immediately. It’s also easy to include in 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 look at services in their language, expanding reach exponentially. While on demand video catch-up means messages endure long after the broadcast has expired.
All 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 a good amount of time now and are expanding their offering. You can 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 go toe to toe with larger more popular churches. This has help organizations everywhere to use their online ministry as an outreach tool. Most major platforms now seem to be offering some type of video archived or live streaming. As stated by one of the major internet backbone carrier. Their projection is by 2020 video streaming will be 80 % of the online traffic.
Any ministry that would intend to outreach on the net and in their community need not to ignore the power of some form of live or archived video storage online. You might use it to do many things. You 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 eradicate the need to transport their members to a church. The same can be done for Ronald McDonald House, senior centers, foreign missions and a whole host of community outreach programs.
High quality online church broadcast is a very good way to draw new people to your ministry. Churches which are growing and thriving with live streams ought to have a great presentation. It’s very important to make effort to put out the ideal presentation to the audience. Because if it is not of a very high level you will turn potential newbies off. So it is tremendously vital 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 folks who cannot sing or speak may have worked or hold people in the physical church, but not people online. They may easily move on to another church website that will give them significantly better presentation. It does not 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 Jesus 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 some people might give to your ministry because people like when churches or organizations 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 inspire 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 news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Not too long ago churches that were on the net and streaming live were medium to mega churches. First 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 that area lot cheaper and smaller.
There’s a new challenge coming for churches which are streaming live on the internet. Several of these churches have invested heavily into websites and equipment, but haven’t realized there is more to getting new customers online than simply streaming. If your website were never generating new visitors or your weren’t getting an influx of new customers to your site previous to live streaming or archiving your church services. They likely won’t find your web page after you start broadcasting over the internet. Word of mouth is good, but no one should limit their church growth in this digital age just to folks they know. With the archived and On-demand video streaming increasing churches have to find ways to tap into this increasing booming trend.
The solution to being successful for any 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 search engines. Let’s think this through. When you are selling cameras and you have lots of other websites selling cameras, how will your business website get to the front of the line so potential prospects can find your page with the cameras you are selling?
This is how Streaming Churches Online might help your preaching ministry. We don’t just help churches stream online. We get new business every day on our site 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 which 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 web-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 members will come. 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’s 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? If you aren’t spending lots of money to raise your church name recognition, your church name recognition is low. Unless you have a very popular ministries where there is some other platform that is driving people to inquire about your website then you will need better marketing for church growth.
