Many ministries and Houses of Worship offer online video streaming. When searching online you may come across many websites that offer hosting sermon videos. Let us explore some of the benefits of streaming worship videos.

  1. Extends the reach within community

Is your church well-known in your community?  Does the public know what you stand for?  Do folks know what you can offer those in need who live nearby?

  • Homebound people. Some people simply cannot get to the church building. That shouldn’t limit them from attending “virtually” via an online live stream.
  • Experience. When young people* drive by your church, do they have to guess what goes on inside the building? Or can they logon to the internet and get a peek inside?
  • Connected members. It is important for the current members of your church to have as easy way to stay connected to your church via Live worship.
  1. Discipleship factor

Church and members can make use of video streaming on any day.

  • Working a weekend shift on Sunday? People can still be a part of the Sunday worship on any other day of the week. That makes it easy to follow the weekly teachings online.
  1. Harsh weather

Where are the snow birds?

  • During harsh weather conditions, most people are not able to attend church services.  Easily stream videos online and view right on the church website.
  • Watch and pray from your home or mobile device.
  • Interact with “prayer requests” and “online giving.”
  • Church services can be downloaded and viewed again-and-again.
  1. Economical factor

Do you pay high prices for radio or TV broadcasting now?

  • If you broadcast your church services now via your local cable provider, you know how expensive that can be. Live streaming each month costs about the same price of an average single monthly cell phone bill.
  • And churches with 100 members or less can expect to pay around $49 per month.
  • Streaming worship is very economical to watch. Easily access via your smart TV, mobile phones, tablets and desktops.

Re-watching ON DEMAND is also easy and convenient. A great streaming provider is http://www.worshipchannels.com/support.html.
