People often ask me this question, usually followed by a comment quoted from their pastor who says, “I don’t want people staying home and not coming to church. Won’t they stay home, if they can watch in their pajamas and slippers?   There are many answers to the question, but my research and polls have found that the driving force behind people’s desire to view church online is wide and varied.  Here’s just a few of the most common reasons:

The 5 top reasons to provide live streaming are:

1) Young couples who have just moved into town will watch a live stream church service an average of 6 times before stepping foot in the church building.

2) Streaming is an effective way for existing church members to stay connected with membership.

3) Providing an alternative for those who have odd work schedules or who travel frequently for work or play  (snow birds).

4) For those who are sick or infirmed.

5) For the elderly who can’t leave home (shut ins) or those living in an assisted living environment.

Also, if folks are like me, when a child in the family is ill it is impossible to bring them to church and drop them off at the nursery because you don’t want other children at the church to get sick too.  So, the most likely situation is that one (or both) of the parents stay home from church as well to take care of the little one.  With a live stream of the church services, the parents can keep up with what’s with going on in the church family as well as enjoy the sermon from the convenience of their home computer or mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, Droid, etc.).
