If you’re thinking about implementing live streaming at your church then know that we’re here to help.
Churches today that don’t use video confine their outreach potential and limit their overall impact. More than ever, people are giving their attention to the screens in their hands. Churches who use video to get on those screens open themselves up to a highly relevant avenue in which to influence people for Christ. So, “When might the best time be for a church to start up a video ministry?”, you might ask… “Um… How about now!?” So without further ado, here are seven specific ways in which video can help expand the outreach and impact of your ministry this holiday season.
Get the checklist you need to build an easy and beautiful website for your church.
Our friend Brett Bzdafka is back on the blog today to give you some insight into why Clover Streaming is so special! We also wanted to let you know about a webinar coming up on October 2nd at 11am PST titled "7 Proven Ways Video will Help Your Holiday Ministry". If you're even starting to think about Christmas , be sure to click on this page and get registered! On a scale of 1 to 10, how “techy” would you consider yourself to be? Regardless of your answer, this reality rings true... We live in a video world. For some reason there’s this perception out there that only church staffers who view themselves at around an 8 or higher on the “techy” scale are capable of running a video ministry. Maybe that’s the way that it used to be, but we’re happy to announce that things have changed. At Clover, we believe that every church should be empowered with an easy way to use video to reach people for Christ.
For those of you who have been keeping up, our friend Brett Bzdafka from BoxCast is back! He's guest writing today to give you some insight into live streaming, and how you can easily get up and running with Clover and BoxCast. To learn more, click on the button at the bottom of the post. Part 1 of the Conversation: “Wouldn’t it be great to broadcast our services live onto our website? I noticed that the church down the street started doing that a few months back and it looks really nice. I know that a lot of people in our community come to our website to see what we’re like before visiting, so it would be really neat to be able to give them a glimpse into our Sunday morning worship through online video. We do have a lot of members that are homebound or in the hospital, as well, so live streaming would probably be a real blessing to them, too.” Part 2 of the Conversation: “As much as I’d love to look into what this might look like for our church, I bet broadcasting video online is really complicated and expensive. We are really busy on Sunday mornings, too, so this would be another thing that would take more volunteers and I’m just not sure that we could manage this. We’d have to find a volunteer who is really techy, as well, and I’m just not sure that we have a person who fits that mold. Well, maybe we’ll stream our services one day, but it’s probably just too much to look into now. Let’s revisit broadcasting online in a year or so.”
