Use Simple Daily Video Messages to Connect with Your Community Published Mar 22, 2020 What does your community need from your church right now? They need regular encouragement, information and leadership. This doesn’t need to include fancy production, lengthy content or professional studios. Several churches in the Rock community are finding success in connecting with their attendees and wider communities through simple, recorded daily devotions. People want to hear from their pastor. And you may have other important messaging to get out to them, like the importance of moving to online giving and how to do that. The short daily video format delivers all of this. From the simple to the complex, this solution can scale to fit your current resources and deliver the same important connection. “We’re doing a daily devo called ‘Daily Dose’ and trying to crowd-source it as much as possible with pastors and administrative staff. We do a three- to four-minute message and then a live song,” says Micah Odor of Whitewater Crossing Church, outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. Steven Kelly with Compass Christian Church in Colleyville, Texas, shared with the Rock community that, “We have been doing a daily live streaming show on our current streaming platforms. A couple worship songs and one of our pastors sharing.” In both of these cases and more, the community is engaging and responding with this content. The bottom line is, the content is more important than the format. So grab your gear or your mobile phone and get those messages out on your fancy streaming platforms or your YouTube channel. Your community will thank you for it.
