Only a Few Make it to All 52
Many of us have come to know the encouragement and sweet fellowship from believers who have been reliably present when it comes to church attendance Sunday after Sunday. Yet even in the midst of such faithful devotion, only a seemingly random selection of Christians are able to make it to worship all 52 weeks of the year.
Whether they’re occasionally homesick, traveling on business, in the hospital due to illness, or even stuck at home due to severe weather or a broken down car, only a few make it to all 52.
So what is your ministry doing to serve these faithful believers who might miss church just 7, 4, or even just 2 Sundays a year? These men and women still need your ministry, and in most cases, if they’re unable to make it to worship due to a trying circumstance, they are in even greater need of encouragement from your ministry than normal.
A Special Time to Reach People
We live in a busy world and I personally feel like it’s getting busier and busier by the day as per this website. In the midst of all of the craziness, though, vacation can truly be a special time. For many folks, a week or two of quiet and uninterrupted vacationing can foster thoughts of personal reflection and self evaluation that rarely occur in the midst of our overbooked day to day schedules.
In light of this reality, it’s not surprising that people often make important decisions while on vacation.
Perhaps they’re evaluating changing careers, having children, or maybe even leaving their spouse. Don’t you want to be close to them and have a voice to speak into their lives during these periodic week long seasons of deep reevaluation? Allowing your congregants to take your ministry with them on vacation through something like video streaming will allow God’s Word to have a voice in their lives even when they’re away from your physical building and their regular routine.
The Best Outreach Tool
Missions trips are expensive. Community barbecues require a ton of volunteer effort. When it comes to getting the most bang for your buck in the world of community outreach nothing quite compares to live video streaming. Many folks in your community wouldn’t feel comfortable coming to an outreach event at your church.
They’re much more likely to stop scrolling on their facebook timeline to get a look into what your church is like, though.
Reaching your community today looks very different than it did a few years ago because our world is changing rapidly into an ever increasing video world. Investing less than $100/month video streaming ministry will accomplish legitimate community outreach in your neighborhood week after week, and do so in a way that is highly relevant in today’s day and age.
The Most Compelling Reason of All
God’s Word is efficacious. It’s unlike any other book. The Bible changes lives and has been doing so since it’s inception. Live Video streaming at it’s very core is just another tool in the arsenal of the church to widely distribute the Word of God so that it can go out and keep changing lives.
If your ministry isn’t streaming your services then God’s Word can only reach those within your four walls on Sunday morning.
On the contrary, if your ministry is streaming, then the reading of the Word, the singing of the Word, the praying of the Word, and the preaching of the Word can be distributed to anyone in the world. The most compelling reason why your ministry should consider broadcasting your services comes down to the reality that doing so can change lives eternally.
Do you have a desire to fulfill the great commission?
Well, one of the best things you can do to reach people in your community is to spend time where they spend time, which is on the internet
By tapping into the power of online streaming, you will be able to reach people beyond the four walls of your church and make it easier for the people in your community to connect with you on the internet
