Is there any better way to spread the good news about Jesus and teachings of love, peace, and harmony than making use of various worship media? Probably, not. At least, not for those who need love in their hearts and spirituality in their lives to govern all their actions.
Churches need to think like corporate marketers would when they try to attract new worshippers into the fold. The Internet has changed the way we reach out to others. Many of us now look at the world through digitally trained eyes. What we are talking about is the effective repetition of online messaging and the use of properly positioned calls to action. Each Church Site or slide presentation need to be easy to navigate and scan through rich content.
What can you rightfully expect from a church website? At a minimum, the site needs to answer four questions to hold the attention of potential worshippers, such as:
- Who can be classed as worshippers?
- What should they believe?
- When and where do they meet?
- Will strangers be welcomed over there?
After all, it is the worshippers who make the house of worship what it is. As a result, it should be them that need to feature in worship slides and be displayed on the homepage of a religious site. Future church members would be more interested in identifying with people they will meet up with.
What Role Do You Believe God Plays in Media?
God plays an important part in all types of media He is being revered on Facebook, people tweet about Him, they post videos and so forth. Surely, God will use whatever tools human beings come up with to reach out interested ones who are looking for His love and compassion and drawing closer to the Gospel.
It is, after all, very comforting and reassuring to know that God has a part in welcoming new members and doing so through all sorts of worship media, including websites, motion graphics, Bible Videos, worship lyrics, Sunday school lessons, and motion graphics.
Each of these much immediately inform visitors what the intended message is all about and who it is for; namely - Hindu, Islam, Christian, Judaism, or Buddhism.
When and Where Do We Meet?
There is no doubt in our minds that God is throughout various kinds of media.
It is our job as ministers or church leaders to take the responsibility on our shoulders in guiding the flock to our Lord and Savior.
For this, a physical address on the website is required and the date and time when the next religious meeting will be held. Web designers must be aware of the fact that not everyone possesses a GPS and may need clear written directions to the church.
Will Strangers be Welcome There?
Without a shadow of a doubt, God welcomes everyone to pray to Him. However, not all churches abide by the same rules. For instance, non-Jews are welcomed to attend a synagogue as long as they respect the rules. Witnessing and proselytizing to others will not be looked upon favorably. Besides, who would walk into someone’s home and criticize the decor there?

Also, when attending Orthodox synagogues, the women would be expected to sit down in a separate section, which may be the upper floor balcony or the back room, separated from the men with the help of a curtain referred to as mechitza. In turn, the men are not allowed to pray in the presence of women.
Make any requirements for attending a Church service clear on your website to prevent an embarrassing situation down the line.
Other Types of Media You Will Find on a Church Site?
Many church websites would make provision for photo galleries where they would showcase their congregants, the house of worship, the prayer services offered and the location. There may also be online products made available in the form of worship lyrics or Bible videos.
Churches may also want to engage visitors by using a blog, Guestbook, newsletters, share button or mailing list.
It is very heartwarming to see that God is onboard with the use of various worship media whether it be state-of-the-art backgrounds, church sites, or any other form of media.
The key thing to remember is to resort to valuable church media resources like Sharefaith to make God proud of your means to attract hordes of people who might become worshippers and spread the Good news about God.
