Over the last few months, we have been trying to find a reasonable option of uploading audio recordings of the sermons each week at Central Christian Church. I have been broadcasting live almost every week through the app called Periscope, but the problem with that is the recordings are only available for about 48-hours after broadcast, meaning that those that want to listen have a very short timeframe to do so.
I have also been recording my sermons on my iPad each week, I just did not have a way of uploading them. Today, however, we think we may have found an option that will work. Have you heard of SoundCloud? It is an online streaming app, mostly for music, but it can double as a podcast as well. What this means is that we are going to be trying it out. I have yesterdays message “The Restless Soul”, the first sermon of our “Soul Detox” series uploaded on my personal SoundCloud account. We are looking into all the options, and we may create an account specifically for the church.
This is a very exciting thing, as we can keep a recording of all the sermons from our congregation, and if someone has to miss a Sunday for whatever reason, they can keep up with the series on their own time. It will also let our Children’s church workers listen to messages from the Sundays that they are teaching our kids, so they can keep up with each series as well.
If you are interested in checking it out, you can click here. You can also create your own SoundCloud account, and follow mine, meaning you will get updates every time we upload new content. I have said this recently, but I just want to say it again; I love technology!
