Tech Needs for Church Online

Podcast IconA few years ago New Life Christian Church, Tom’s church, started doing Church Online. They started with very little and then worked their way up to where they are now. It’s not the end all be all, but there have been some significant advancements and improvements with what they do.

That is why Tom has brought on Daniel Channell, Video guru, Producer and Director for New Life’s Online Campus. As more and more churches make the jump into Online presence and campuses, Tom and Daniel talk about the technology you need to start by looking at what it was like to start New Life Online ministry and where they are now. So, in this episode they talk about:

  • What is Daniel’s role at New Life and with the Online Campus
  • What tech stuff do you need to start doing Online Church effectively
  • How many volunteers do you need to run Online Church
  • What advancements has New Life made over the years that have helped.
