How Church Plants Can Create Quality Online Services

By New Churches Team

Value Found

Josh Young is the first to admit that before March 2020 he was vehemently opposed to online church. He firmly believed that in-person church and groups was the best way to do church. But when everything shut down, he pivoted and on a deeper level began to see the value in online church. “My ministry philosophy began to change as I started to see people engage with Scripture, engage with Christ, and come to faith through watching an online gathering,” Young explains.

Options Researched

When the pandemic hit, Young began researching options for technology that supported online church services. He admits that video editing is not his forte, so he needed something that was extremely easy to use and affordable for his church plant. In his research, he found Switcher Studio, an easy to use app that allows you to connect multiple apple devices to one apple device from which you can then switch cameras. By simply pressing a button on an iPad you can switch cameras, slides, overlays, and more. For a church with under 100 people on a shoestring budget this was the perfect choice. They were able to put together a quality product for way above their product simply because of the tools available to them.

Doing What Works

Before the pandemic, Young felt like his church had a well-working model of a Q&A format Bible study. When they moved to online church, he wanted to reproduce this but found out that in practice it was clunky due to awkwardness and delays. So, Young moved the Q&A portion to the end of the service, but even that wasn’t perfect.
