Tulsa, OK -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/01/2006 --The “National Share Beyond Sunday” campaign is dedicated to offering churches and ministries the opportunity to broadcast and publish their recorded sermons online for FREE. Sermon Share is excited to introduce a Christ-honoring mission to strengthen the spiritual growth of every church across North America with the goal to give ministry leaders the ability to share their weekly teachings, worship, and announcements on the web using their Sermon Player.
Sermon Share launched this campaign to give each participating ministry a free copy of the highly acclaimed Sermon Player. The Sermon Player is a web-based media archive delivery solution accessible directly from the ministry website. It allows website visitors the ability to search through an audio archive unique to the church by speaker, series, scripture, or even key words. The Sermon Player also includes podcasting which allows users to download each new sermon published automatically and listen to them on any portable MP3 player.
“No matter where, no matter when, having access to all of your pastors sermons is priceless! I strongly believe every church should provide this for their congregation.” says Joshua Stokes, co-founder of Sermon Share, “God has blessed us with the ability to launch this campaign by providing not only the latest in technology exclusively for churches, but also the funding to provide the Sermon Player for free.”
Already, Sermon Share has over 400 participating ministries. One of these is Pastor Joe Jones of Glenpool, Oklahoma, which believes that the Sermon Player has helped strengthen his church. Jones states, “The Sermon Player enables us to share the gospel to our people as they travel and go. They can download the messages to their iPods or MP3 players. It keeps everybody in sync and there is such a great opportunity to get the word out 24/7.”
Ministries can join the campaign and start sharing their sermons by going to the “Share Beyond Sunday” campaign website at http://www.sharebeyondsunday.com. Here they can Sign-Up for free and a Sermon Share representative will assist the church with both a free player installation and a personal walk-through of their online media manager. It is simple to use and requires no additional software to be loaded on a user’s computer.
At the conclusion of the year, the Sermon Player will be given as a gift to all ministries and their sermon archive will remain accessible forever. However, each user will be given the choice to continue adding new sermon audio to their player beyond the free year for only $25 a month.
