Back in the days, churches pay for the time they spend on TV or radio stations to reach their audience through the live video but due to advancement in technology, many churches are adopting Facebook live for their ministration. A growing number of people go to the church via Facebook live. It has become a dominant lifestreaming portal. This is simply because it serves as an effective tool for churches and religious organizations to stay connected with their members. Users can hear and watch their pastors preaching live during Sunday services and weekly activities.
In order to enjoy the facebook church live streaming, the basic requirements include a facebook account, a strong internet connection, and your mobile device or PC.
Why should churches use facebook live for religious activities?
No matter how anybody feels about it, Facebook is a great avenue to reach out and preach to millions of people. Other reasons include:
- To reach out to lost souls through evangelism.
- To inspire members of their churches through daily devotionals and teachings during their weekly activities.
- To connect to all their members in any part of the world faster.
- To enable you to be a part of any church activity even while on the go, through your mobile devices and PC
- Pastors have a larger number of audience to reach through this medium so advertisement of their events or activities (like crusades and other special programs) becomes accomplished.
