Craig Groeschel Founder of Life Church.tv a Church Online has worked to make a Dream Come True for CISM Chaplain Oscar Smith lovingly called Chap Oscar. Together we are able to reach people who might have never walked through the doors of a church building. God is changing lives around the world beyond what we ever imagined!
Chap Oscar also wants to acknowledge friend of www.AdotcomChurch.com Pastor Greg Surratt of Seacoast Church. Who recently said "Seldom a week goes by that I don't hear a story about someone who has been touched by the love of God through our Church Online. From seekers, homebound believers, regular attenders on the road, to those looking for the first experience with our church, Church Online has allowed us to connect with them where they are, instead of requiring them to come to us.
Last week LifeChurch.tv, one of the trailblazers in online ministry, launched the Church Online Platform. We talked with Lori Bailey, director of communications at LifeChurch.tv and Center for Church Communication board member, about this new opportunity for churches, Chap Oscar asks :Can you give us an overview of what Church Online is?
Lori Bailey: For those who have never experienced it, Church Online is a community of people who gather for services that include an interactive video presentation of worship and teaching, a live chat environment translated from multiple languages around the world, opportunities for one-on-one live prayer, and the ability for users to engage their existing networks like Facebook and Twitter.
Thank you in advance for supporting the Teaching Ministry of Pastor and Founder of the World's First www.AdotcomChurch.com.
Our goal is to remove all the barriers of technology so people can be reached and become uniquely equipped to share God's Word with other family and friends right from their laptops, smartphones and desktops.
My passion is Home and Life Safety. I applaud the many minds that have gathered some of us like-minded Pastors and Churches who share an interest in developing a wonderful way to do Online Church around the globe. The formula has been Beta Tested over the course of many months.
Marsha, Co-Pastor and I really wanted to be in a position to capture our Teaching-Based Ministry on video, and to also secure professional grade video streaming. Thank God for good friends Ted Ciuba and Co-Pastor Luke Olmstead for encouraging us every step of the way. A heartfelt thanks also to our two sons EJ and Henry for standing with us during this awesome task. Special Thanks to our God son Cordero Rowland and our friend Greg Whitaker for helping with the Audio and Video equipment. May God add a very special blessing to Paul Ash of Sam Ash Music here in Nashville, TN for a great price on equipment. This Church is 100% Debt-Free. We will never beg for money!
So Chap Oscar just how will you take up Offerings?
Glad you asked! We are a Online Church with absolutely No Real Estate or Expensive Buildings. No Church Bulletins, No Cardboard Funeral Home fans, No Building Fund Raisers, No Fried Chicken Dinners, No man-pleasing messenger worship or rings to kiss!
Our goal is to create a Bible-based Teaching Experience that will integrate with a real world church experience!
The Leadership at Life Church.tv, has noticed that the community can be loosely described in four segments:
1.Distant: People who are outside the physical reach of the church.
2.Curious: People who would prefer to explore their interest in spirituality in an online context.
3.Mobile: People who are a part of our church, but are looking for an option to worship together because they are traveling or displaced.
4.Digital: People who prefer to experience much of their community in an online context.
www.AdotcomChurch.com is a supplement to help people stay connected to a Church when they can’t attend in person their own Church for various reasons.
For others, we are here to help folks find God through His Only Begotten Son Lord Jesus Christ. As Pastor my goal is not to be anything but a supplement and not a substitute for your full-fledged church home you already attend. But there’s no doubt that amazing life change can take place in a Online environment like we'll have at the World's First www.AdotcomChurch.com Thank God...We Have Officially Launched!
