Anyone can embed a YouTube video these days. With a simple drag and drop, you can post your sermons on your website for the world to see. But don't your sermons deserve better? Isn't there more we can do to engage your community using more robust tools?
Your pastor's messages can be a great source of inspiration––as long as your congregation can find them. Sermons are the messaging of your church––the heart of your mission––and the words your whole community gathers together to reflect upon. And sermons are so incredibly useful on your church website! Sermons give life to your online presence, keeping your content fresh, engaging, and giving your members a chance to interact with their church family online. Sharing your sermons online also serves as a resource to visitors and potential new members by showing them how your messages live and breathe, as they get to know your church.
So, if you're ready to make your sermons more than just another link on your website, you need a media manager designed for the needs of the church. The Ekklesia 360 Sermons Module is your solution. With this tool, you can easily post your sermon, its audio, video, artwork, and notes on your website. You can spread the word via Facebook and Twitter––and in the click of a button, your community can listen, watch, and contribute to the conversation.
See it for yourself here. This custom sermon detail page helped Port City Community Church make it easy to watch every sermon in the series, listen on a custom audio player, get series artwork, and talk about the messages on Twitter. Port City created a space for their members to engage outside the auditorium. And you can, too!
But the interaction didn't stop there! Port City used the other features of the tool to make their website an incredible hub for the conversations happening in the church.
