Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
While attendance declines in American churches, some churches are growing and reaching people in record numbers online using internet broadcast capability, many in greater numbers than those attend services inside their buildings.
Hundreds of pastors are gathering to sharpen skills and share success stories at a two-day conference hosted by Lake Pointe Church.
While many pastors are buying into this new way of doing church, there is controversy! Recently, nationally known pastor, Mark Driscoll refused to participate in Outreach Magazine’s annual survey of the largest churches in the United States because the magazine would not count “online” participants.
With new high speed video streaming technology and social media, churches are finding ways to reach new audiences and they are connecting often times in very personal ways.
Quote: MediaSocial application developer Peter McGowan tells pastors “Doing church online with internet broadcasting and social media really works! Jesus said wherever two or more are gathered in my name, there am I in their midst.”
