As a small church pastor, you might be thinking, “How am I supposed to prepare a sermon and a podcast episode every week?”

In this episode of Modern Church Leader, we chat with the founder of Christ-Centered Marketing, Travis Albritton, to discuss how easy it is to start and maintain a podcast for your church.

The beauty of podcasting is that it is simple to start, cheap to maintain, and can be molded into whatever you want.

“Once you step away from the Sunday Morning experience and you think about all the different ways that you pastor and minister to people in your church, a podcast can be an opportunity for you to take the best bits of those and create that as a resource for your members through the week.” - Travis Albritton

Anyone can start a podcast by simply having a smartphone in a set of headphones. You can easily keep your costs to $50 a month by using free editing software and a Buzzsprout subscription.

Here are three simple steps to getting your church podcast started:

Decide on a Topic.

Whether it be a recap of your Sunday sermon, pastoral advice you wish to give to your church members, or an interview style where you talk to different church leaders, deciding your overall topic is a great place to start.

Try Recording On Your Phone First!

Try recording a couple of episodes on the Voice Memo app on your phone. Choose a quiet location and use a set of headphones with a microphone. These can be 15-minute recordings or an hour. The more your podcast, the more you will grow. Try to become comfortable with making your recordings conversational and easy for your listener to stay engaged. If you feel podcasting is for you, you can easily upgrade your recording equipment to enhance the quality!

Edit your Podcast.

Editing your podcast may seem daunting, but learning can be straightforward. You can simply use Garage Band on your Apple devices or a paid subscription like Riverside. YouTube can be your best friend when learning new technologies like these! If you need additional help, feel free to reach out to Travis at Christ-Centered Marketing to get your podcast started.

Decide on a podcast hosting platform.

When you are ready to publish your podcast to the public, a hosting platform is an easy way to get your episodes on all the major podcasting listening platforms like Apple Podcasts or Spotify. These hosting platforms range in the subscription price. Some popular ones are Buzzsprout, Libsyn, and Fusebox.

Promote your podcast.

Once your podcast is public, it’s time to promote it! Promoting a podcast to your congregation can be completely free. Simply post about it on social media, talk about it from the stage, or add it to your church website as a resource.

Podcasting is so popular right now. So many are listening to podcasts while they clean their house or drive to pick their kids up from school.

“Podcasting is the only source of internet media that you can consume while doing something else.” - Travis Albritton

Your church starting a podcast is just another way to minister to your congregation throughout the week.
