The benefits of creating a YouTube Channel for your Ministry

YouTube has been all the craze for tweens and teens for years and years. They LOVE YouTube! That is why it is so important for ministries to be on YouTube in some way. At the very least, it would be appropriate for a student ministry to be on the channel.

That is why I invited my friend, Brian Mason, onto the podcast. Brian is a Young Life Area Director in Belton, Kansas. He has been using videos and YouTube for his ministry for years and is seeing fruit from his efforts. So today, in this episode Brian and I talk about…

  • Brian’s background and how he got started in ministry
  • Why he started making videos
  • What equipment he is using to make videos
  • What videos can you make for your ministry (hint: it’s about your particular style)
  • How long it takes to put a video together for his channel
  • How videos are not just for teens.

Check out Brian’s YouTube channel and his Vanilla Ice Parody as well! They are great and it really shows that you don’t need a video background to make a channel and great videos!
