The YouTube Effect (In Ministry)

Perhaps nothing has done more to expose the church (to vast audiences and criticism) like Youtube.   With over 100 million viewers, the ability for a church in a remote location to reach an audience half way around the world is not unthinkable anymore.

By creating their own content (even with a small flip camera) church's can document their faith journey, provide training for their leadership and document church history and events for posterity.

Below are some of the sites I found.  Village Church is using their site to keep the congregation (and the world) up to date with Matt Chandler's battle with cancer.  They also provide some training videos and instructional videos on church core values.

The final article is a great discussion of why and how the church can utilize Youtube (and some reasons not to)
