How to Tie Your Website into Your Current Preaching Series

Article by Adam Johannes
CEO, ChurchInsight

There are many reasons as to why you should upload your sermons onto your church website. From people being absent who may want to listen to it at a later date to just the pure fact that it’s a quick and easy way to spread to word as most people are online these days, but the question is how do you do it?

Getting the audio file into a digital format

The first thing you need to tackle is transforming the audio that is being recorded into a digital format that can then be uploaded onto your church website. The easiest way to do this is to download a free software called Audacity onto a laptop and record it directly. The Audacity software - as mentioned is free and easy to use, and in terms of getting the audio you can buy a USB microphone that plugs into the laptop to record the sound. The next way is if your church already records its sermons onto a CD. This is the next easiest option because all you would need to do is insert the disk into the laptop’s disk drive and then import the sound files on it through either iTunes or Windows Media Player. If your church has a soundboard that you use to play audio through any way you can easily buy a sound adapter for a pretty cheap and attach it to the soundboard. This device will change the audio into digital.

Get podcasting!

Podcasting is just a fancy way of saying putting your digital audio files online. Podcasting hosts are easy enough to find online. All you need to do is create a Google search with the search line ‘podcasting hosts’ and you will get a many number of options to choose from. It is obviously up to you who you go with but the all provide the same service give or take a few minor details. You do need to take into consideration though, that the podcast hosts do have a particular niche in what they like to post on their websites. So you would need to find a host that is in tune with what your sermons are about and would be able to portray it in the correct way.

Make use of BIG names

There are some big names like iTunes which actually have a podcast library that is open for anyone who has the app/software downloaded onto their phone or laptop to access. So it is probably worth doing a bit of research into it and then contacting such a big company to see if they will post your podcast. This will increase your notoriety and let’s face it the iTunes podcast library has got to be the most popular one to date so it will only help.

The digital age is a scary thing, absolutely everything is online now but rather than be afraid of it we must make use of what it can do to aid us in what we want to achieve.
