The Internet has given us the ability to access vast volumes of information across multiple electronic platforms. Most churches have embraced it while others seem to be intimidated by it.
At the moment, there is a lot of hype around churches live streaming their services. I was slacking in the process of finalizing our church’s online campus until I had an experience in a hospital that would change things. Thank God for hospitals and skilled doctors, but let’s face it, no one wants to be in hospital!
The only thing I had to keep me sane after my operation was my iPad. Having watched a service streamed from the America to my hospital bed in South Africa was amazing. Even though it was nothing like being in a live service, I still had the opportunity to listen to the Word and experience a live worship service. Anyone who has been hospitalized for a long period of time faces depression. A church that has the capacity to stream their services would then have the ability to, reach that person beyond the walls of the church.
This is just one example, and a very personal one at that, of how beneficial streaming church services can be.
Technology has changed; streaming a live service isn’t as complex as it was a few years back. Just about every church should seriously consider an online campus.
Does your church stream online services?
What service do you use?
Remember what Mark 16:15 says. “And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” Why not use a live stream to do it?
