How You Can Still Meet with Your Congregation, Virtually…

Craig HueyChurch, Culture, FaithLeave a Comment

We are in unprecedented times. 

Your church has most likely been affected by what is going on with the Coronavirus. 

Many American churches are now looking at ways they can be streaming their weekly services in order to be able to “meet” virtually.  

Public health officials have warned against large gatherings such as church services to limit the spread of COVID-19, forcing congregations to either shut down or find a way to stream their weekly service. Many states are even restricting gatherings of over 10 people in implementing recent “shelter in place” guidelines. 

Recent research shows 41% of churches have never posted any portion of services online, leaving many now scrambling to adapt to quarantine culture.

TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) is looking to help. 

In this 15-minute tutorial titled “How to Stream Your Church Service Using Facebook Live,” pastors are walked through each step in the streaming process and given helpful tips on how to move church meetings to a digital format. 

The webinar is free to pastors and ministry leaders who sign up through an online form via the TBN website here.

“COVID-19 has presented an unprecedented challenge to churches who have long based ministry models on in-person attendance. Now that in-person attendance isn’t an option, it’s critical for leaders to understand how to fully use social technology so the work of ministry can still happen,” said Nona Jones, Facebook’s Head of Faith-Based Partnerships. “People need hope more than ever, and now they need to find hope online.”
