Worship Matters Episode 27 - Online Preaching
By Derek Weber
Dr. Derek Weber, Director of Preaching Ministries, shares some ideas about preaching online. The online worship experience grew out of a sense of urgency, but will remain as a viable asset to the proclamation of the Word to new and wider audiences. It is, therefore, up to every preacher and worship team to consider how to use this medium to maximize the unique advantages available. Paying attention to preaching online is a vital part of this new ministry.
