Livestreaming, video casting, and captured video have become an integral part of our social media experience. YouTube is the second most used search engine in the world. When people want to find out about something, they use Google or YouTube now. If you want an answer, you go online.

Livestreaming video will get your church’s message out.

This resource from the General Council on Finance and Administration shares some basics on how to do a livestream for social media consumption.

You'll find information on:

  • Necessary and optional equipment for a basic livestream
  • Delivering the stream
  • Basic workflow for setting up a livestream

With the trend towards personal and authentic experiences online, you do not need the “best” equipment or high production value to meet the people where they are. Just keep it real and faithful and those who have eyes, ears and hearts will see, hear and feel the Holy Spirit talking to them through your stream.
