For years, large churches have used media like radio and television to get their message out. But you’re a new church plant with limited resources.
What’s the Problem?
You sense the need to have an online campus; at least more than just podcasting your sermons. You know that there are people in your congregation that can’t make it to services every week, and that there are people in the community who would be more inclined to check you out online before coming to a service on your turf. You want a way to get your message out there, and better yet, have it be interactive.
What to Do
Get yourself a FREE UStream account and within minutes you’ll be able to stream your services over the internet and have a live chatroom to moderate questions during the service. You can even record the service for playback later.
You will need some kind of digital camera, and you may want to get the audio from your soundboard rather than the camera’s onboard mic. But UStream keeps it very simple.
