Why do people view a church sermon online? #citrt #ctdrt

Online sermon views from Topeka Bible Church

We count people because people count to God.

We discussed in staff meeting today about our slight drop in attendance at Topeka Bible Church over the past month or two. What’s ironic is that this past weekend was the largest attendance on record for the first week in March — go figure.  Was it bad weather the past month?  Was it something else?  Should we care?  If so, is there anything we should do about it?

That dialog gave way to research how many people were using our church website to view/listen to the sermons online. The graph here, put together by the talented Mark Bucholtz on staff, shows the sharp increase in online sermon views since February 2009 from Google Analytics data.  Interestingly enough, the four major spikes all have this in common — they weren’t sermons a part of a regular sermon series.  Hmmmm.  Also, the two largest sermon view spikes involved Kerry Livgren in the gathering.  Hmmmmm,

Tell me, why do people (including you) view a church sermon online?

    Dear Bryan,

    That chart is probably the single most useful, professional-looking, and profound publication in the history of mankind. I hope I’m not jumping the gun here, but it may just change the course of the world. We’ll see.
