“We’re excited to be working with Joel Osteen Ministries for the fourth consecutive year on this very important event,” said Brian Boyd, Chief Executive Officer, Media Connect Partners. “It is, truly, a 360-degree interactive event connecting the online audience with the Osteens and the crowd in the stadium. You’re there no matter where you are,” said Boyd.
The MCP team will coordinate the online video stream, produce social media content for all channels, and moderate a live chat room and multiple social media platforms during the event.
“The format we’ve created with MCP allows online viewers to become active participants,” said Andrea Davis, Senior Director of Media Relations and Social Media, Joel Osteen Ministries. “This year, we’re offering a deeper and richer experience for those inside the stadium using their mobile devices and for the much larger audience that cannot attend in person. It allows us to bring God’s message of love and hope to entirely new audiences,” said Davis.
Jason Madding, Director of Marketing for Joel Osteen Ministries added, "An important element to the online event is the hub for hundreds of churches to promote the event to their followers and friends. It's exciting to see this event create community where people from all walks of life can encourage and pray for each other. This is what the church is all about."
