Are you interested in live streaming your church services, but you haven’t taken the plunge? If so, then you’re not alone.
Many church leaders have an interest in streaming their services, but they haven’t decided to do so for a variety of reasons.
There are three big reasons why most church leaders choose not to stream their services. Below are those three reasons, and counters to every point showing you how easy and affordable streaming is today.
1. It's Affordable
The first big hurdle most churches have to cross is the expense. Thankfully, you won’t need to break the bank to start streaming your services.
To get started, all you need is a computer, a camera, and a good tripod to stabilize your shot. If your church doesn’t own this equipment, then consider asking members of your church if they have this equipment. Also, if someone does have this equipment, then there’s a good chance he or she will be interested in volunteering at your church.
After you get your equipment, then you’ll need a service that will enable you to stream your services through multiple channels, like Facebook and YouTube.
2. It’s Easy
Does the fear of not having the technical abilities to stream your services keep you from moving forward? If so, then don’t worry.
Since many streaming services make it easy, all you need is the equipment listed above, power, an Internet connection, and someone ready to press a few buttons.
The simplicity of streaming will make it easy for you and your church to maximize the time you’re already spending preparing for your worship service to reach more people, which leads us to our next point.
3. It’s Massively Beneficial
Do you have a desire to fulfill the great commission?
Well, one of the best things you can do to reach people in your community is to spend time where they spend time, which is on social media.
By tapping into the power of live streaming, you will be able to reach people beyond the four walls of your church and make it easier for the people in your community to connect with you on Facebook and YouTube. In fact, there are six ways you can use live streaming to reach and train people you never thought you could.
