About a year ago I was looking for good Christian content on YouTube and so much of what I found was lacking. I decided to start my own channel and I had hoped at that time to encourage others to do the same.

Now, we have so many churches putting their content online. I really hope that will continue on some level long after the pandemic has passed because that is putting the gospel where people are looking rather than holding the gospel where people aren’t present (in our church buildings when we were meeting).

If our focus is ourselves, our conversations will focus on whether or not God is pleased with the new arrangement for church online.

If our focus is on others we will be intentional about reaching those who we might not reach otherwise.

Encourage your members to share your church service and message links on social media.

For those of us who preach, remember those hearing the message aren’t 100% our typical crowd. New ears are listening. Don’t miss the opportunity. It can change our focus and presentation to some degree.

Let’s be in prayer that much fruit comes out of this season. We started a prayer chain for the local hospital using signup genius. People shared it on social media and we had a number of new people sign up to pray. This wouldn’t have happened two months ago.

What ways are you seeing churches use this one to connect with those outside your congregation?
