Church members expect to receive the word each time they set foot in the house of worship. Many can’t wait to hear the pastor start teaching the sermon lesson. Sometimes members want more than what is delivered on a Saturday or Sunday gathering. Many churches use old school methods like recording the sermon audio or video on CDs. The member can then pick the CD up in few hours after the meeting. This can be time consuming and expensive for any ministry. Just editing a video or audio file could cost 100s of dollars.
Well many churches have turned to delivery their sermon media in a different way. A church app. Mobile technology advancements, allow us to receive our sermon media in the blink of an eye when you want it.
Church apps have several forms of delivering media to your mobile phone. First, video can be uploaded to a hosting partner like YouTube or Vimeo for free. Then integrated into the church app via a RSS feed. Second, is sermon audios. Think about listening to your favorite pastor while cooking dinner, sitting at a little league football game, cutting the lawn, or any other time besides being physically at church. This also allows a member to turn their most stressful time into positive encouragement time. The final form of sermon media delivery, is live streaming video. That right! Many churches are using their church apps to create something similar to live T.V. It’s actually better.
Members don’t have to sit through commercials or hunt for on-demand channel recordings. They can just click one button at the streaming live service time and Bam! I once heard a member discuss why they liked the live streaming service. They stated that they attends service in N.Y almost every Sunday, but its certain times of the year streaming the service is better. One example they gave was “Easter Sunday.” They stated on this particular day they always stay home because it’s no parking spots open. Instead of trying for fine a parking spot and then a seat, they rather stay home and stream the service. In addition, they said they tithe their donation through the app at the same time.
You can see church app media is the new way to delivery and receive sermon media. If your church doesn’t have an app they are missing out.
