Should Your Church Be Podcasting?


Certainly every church ought to be podcasting, including yours. It is essential for us to note that the world has changed drastically and technologically and those who do not keep up with the changes will be left behind. We are presently in a technologically driven age and the church should be at the forefront of this move.

Distance is No Barrier

Millions of people can be reached within a minute. Churches should not be limited to their physical environment; it is time for the church to start thinking outside the box and embrace new ideas of reaching out to the lost around us. Podcasting is like a church without walls and restrictions because the distance is not a barrier.

Another reason why podcasting is vital is that we live in a very busy age and there is rarely time to reach out to people who are always in a hurry. Hence, sharing the message of the gospel through podcasts is certainly an excellent idea that enables those with busy schedules to listen to the Word “on the go.”

Podcasting can also show that your Church is innovative and creative. Churches that embrace technology usually attract more youths and young adults.

Quality Matters

Making a good podcast requires a lot of diligence. When creating your podcast it is important that you do it with all your might and strength and be determined to do a work of high quality. “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goes.’” (Ecclesiastes 9:10)

Here are some technical aspects to creating a high-quality podcast:

Pros and Cons of Having a Podcast

A podcast certainly will increase and expand the reach of your church. More souls can be reached using a podcast, thereby fulfilling the Great Commission. In this digital era where almost everyone has a smartphone, there is no greater way to harvest souls than making use of a podcast. Having a podcast is a clear sign that your church is sold out to the expansion of the kingdom and ready to make extra efforts in saving the lost. Having a podcast in church will bridge the gap between the church and the social media community.

On the other hand, having a podcast could be controversial and could certainly attract a great deal of criticism, particularly from those who still see social media as the “devil’s platform.” A low-quality podcast will do more damage to the reputation of the church, as listeners may judge your church or even all Christians by the unprofessional presentation.

Having a podcast for your church is great as long as you are prepared to give it all it takes to ensure quality podcasts to reach the lost.
