3 Reasons Your Church Should be Posting Short Clips of Sunday’s Sermon

Corey Alderin

Churches have a unique opportunity in today’s digital age to reach a wider audience through the use of short-form video on social media. With the rise of these videos on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and others, Churches can share their sermons in bite-sized pieces to reach a larger audience.

There are several reasons why Churches should take advantage of this opportunity:


Boost Your Church’s Growth

Social media algorithms are designed to show users content that they are interested in, and one way this is determined is by location. This means that your Church’s content is more likely to reach people near you, who may potentially become visitors. With the use of short-form videos, Churches can showcase what their Church is like in 60 seconds or less, giving potential visitors a glimpse into their Church community.

Matthew 5:14, “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” By using social media to share their message, Churches have the opportunity to be a shining light and attract new visitors.

Reach a New Digital Mission Field

With the popularity of short-form video, Churches can now reach a growing audience of non-believers who are less likely to watch a full-length sermon online. The short format of these videos makes them more impactful and appealing to a wider audience, especially those who are not followers of your Church’s page. This presents a huge opportunity for Churches to reach and impact a new digital mission field. 

Mark 16:15, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” 

Make Your Church Stand Out

Not many Churches are taking advantage of this opportunity to reach a wider audience through short form videos. By jumping on this trend now, your Church can stand out and gain a significant advantage over other Churches who have not yet adopted this strategy. 

Philippians 2:15, “Shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life.”
