Unlike ten years ago, individuals are extremely busy, but if ministries can continue to get parishioners to access sermons on the run, it’s a win for everybody. Whether they are on vacation or off doing things with family, their ministry is right alongside on their smartphones. The rat race of life should not be a factor. Just pull out your smart device and you are there. Because of this, 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. Most 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 keeps growing, which has brought about the growth of mobile video as a whole. Quite a few people are more frequently watching content on his or her smartphones and tablets, which has forced companies to alter their approaches. Live streaming is a big focal point for large companies. They are projecting streaming videos to be a top marketing tool in the future. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, and YouTube invest significant sums of money into building and enhancing their own live stream platforms, according to the Financial Times.
One of the HUGE thing that is helping video content to become so well received is the increased amount of mobile video viewing. Google and other search engines are looking at how contents fits on mobile devices. Church targeted audience is now 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 clients are broadcasting to Facebook, Ustream and YouTube. I expect this to become more and more common for places of worships. Reaching youth is a huge segment of the population that stream videos. This suggests 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 indicate that live video is more fascinating to audiences: 80% prefers 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 pictures combined.
The Live chat options is crucial for religious leaders that allow 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 own personal language, expanding reach exponentially. While on demand video catch-up means messages endure long afterwards the broadcast is finished.
All this functionality are easy to implement and enable churches not only to enhance their live streams but 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 short time now and are expanding their offering. Then there are new smaller organizations that just start their live online church streaming ministries videos broadcast. The low cost now is helping small budget churches to rival larger better known churches. This has help organizations everywhere to use their online ministry as an outreach tool. Most major platforms are offering some type of video archived or live streaming. As suggested 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 online and in their community need not to ignore the power of some form of live or archived video storage online. You can utilize it to do many things. You may use these videos for nursing facilities that have a worship hall. This provide them with the abilities to host church service on location which will take away the need to transport their members to a church. The same is possible for Ronald McDonald House, senior centers, foreign missions and a whole host of community outreach programs.
Top quality online church broadcast is a superb way to draw new people to your ministry. Churches that are growing and thriving with live streams will need 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 elevated level you will turn potential new members off. So it is tremendously vital that you make sure the presentation is at a very 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’ll easily move on to another church website that will give them significantly better presentation. It doesn’t necessarily 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 attractive, then there are lots of benefits you will enjoyed. First some might give to your ministry because people like when churches or organizations are well organized. You will draw new members because people love to be a 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’ll 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 believe your ministry will grow locally and nationally.
