The Grace Brethren church in Lititz, Pennsylvania (Scott Distler, pastor) has been live-streaming its Sunday morning service and recently did a research project to discover how effective it is in reaching not only regulars from the church, but also families in the community who have no affiliation with Grace Church. Here is a bit of the analysis, as shared in Pastor Distler’s blog:
Last Sunday we had 103 computers that logged on to the live stream of our 10am service here at Grace Church. 53 of these visitors completed a survey that we offered. We discovered through this survey that 32% of these viewers were first time visitors to the live webcast and that 28% of viewers were NOT regular attendees or members of Grace Church.
We also learned that on average, for each computer that logs on, there are a total of 2.6 people watching. So given last Sunday’s numbers of 103 computers logged on to our live webcast we can figure that a total of 267 people watched the live webcast. 86 of these people were first time viewers to the live web cast and 75 of the viewers were not regular attendees or members of Grace Church.
Please be sure you share with others that they can watch our 10 am service live on the we using the following link:
