Live Streaming & Simulcasting Made Simple & Safe

Life is starting to get back to normal, but it doesn’t mean live streaming is going away.

For most churches, the events of 2020 made live streaming the new and expected normal. Broadcasting your services over the internet became a necessity.

Now, as things begin to open back up and many are returning to in-person gatherings, don’t make the mistake of thinking you no longer need to Live Stream your services. There is an online community still out there and many more you can reach.  

A recent survey showed as many as 20-40% of churchgoers have yet to return to in person services and with the continued uncertainty and anxiety with recent events, millions are searching online for answers.

If you’re not there, who will be?

Online Broadcasting with Catalyst Resource Group’s own live stream platform, sermon.net

  • It’s SIMPLE: Set things up once and you are good to go for all broadcasts moving forward.

We’ve made it easy for your volunteers/media team.

With the click of a button, we will receive your Live Stream and automatically send it to the Player in your Website, the Apps we provide (for Android, Apple, and Roku), as well as your Facebook and/or YouTube accounts. 

AND then to your podcast! After your Live Stream has ended, we automatically archive your Video and/or Audio file, create a companion audio file from the video, and add it to your on-demand archive. Simply choose ‘show in podcast’ in your Episode default setting to have these audio and/or video files automatically added to your Podcast feeds at Apple Podcasts / iTunes, Google Podcasts, Spotify, etc.

All-in-one… With the click of a button. It’s that simple!

  • It’s SAFE: When it comes to safety and security there are two areas under your responsibility, Your Sermons and Your Congregation.

* Protect Your Sermons … The free secular platforms own your messages and owe you nothing. Without notice they can shut-down your stream, remove your sermons, or completely delete your account.

Catalyst Resource Group’s live stream platform, sermon.net, is a low cost middle-man that will capture and deliver your stream to all your destinations. We encourage you to keep using the free platforms (we help make it easy and automatic), but we also help you keep a safe copy of your on-demand sermons, as well as alternative access to your Live Stream. All with the click of a button. 

* Protect Your Congregation The secular platforms are not interested in supporting your message. Quite the opposite. They want your members and their profile data. They will inundate them with all sorts of ungodly content and tempting advertisements to distract and pull them down into their time-sucking vortex.

Give your congregation an option. Do not force them to go to those platforms if they would rather not. There are a lot of people that will truly appreciate this provision.

  • WE ARE KINGDOM-FOCUSED: As a Christian non-profit ministry, our mission and values are rooted and ground in the Bible. We are WITH you. 

All support is absolutely free. We are here and always happy to assist.  

Thank you for choosing and using sermon.net!
