Found yesterday on the AG-NEWS announcement list:
AG News wants to know if podcasts of sermons/messages by the local church is widespread.
Take the short AG News poll and let us know! Click here to begin…
I took the poll.
I listen to a lot of sermons and other spoken word content on my PocketPC. I load it up each week with chocolaty goodness and fill my mind while commuting the two hours I spend driving each day.
Here’s to hoping the A/G decides to promote podcasting by the local church. Though, not every church needs to (or should) podcast, it would be good to get some of our better preachers more exposure.
Meanwhile, check out my good friend John Abela‘s online audio initiative for A/G preachers at:
Dedicated to providing a central location for all Assemblies of God pastors and their online audio sermons for their church members and the mass public to access them!
John is a former A/G pastor, crack coder (he co-wrote one of the most popular online community fora available today: phBB), and accumulator/creator of a vast horde of A/G related websites including AGJobs, AGSingles, and AGPrayer … among others.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the A/G HQ got into the podcasting game … in the next couple of years, especially with their new A/G web-hosting initiative for local churches (free: AGChurches.org). But I’d also be surprised if the local pastors got on board with them — what with the typical pastor’s distrust of initiatives out of Springfield, Missouri.
If I hear more, I’ll be sure to track and post it.
