No one puts new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins—and the wine is destroyed, and so are the skins.

But new wine is for fresh wineskins.

MARK 2:22

In a time of isolaton, mistrust and uncertainty, what is the message people need to hear?

This global pandemic is not just a medical challenge—it’s an economic and social one. People have been asked to stay home and avoid public gatherings. And for the first time in decades, our busy 21st century lifestyles have been put on hold.

And what are people doing?
Looking for answers. Connection. Meaning.

According to a recent study by Barna, they're tuning in to God's Word. Today's digital savvy, Facebook-friendly audiences are consuming content in new ways. Unlike radio listeners, they're used to tight bursts of content delivered in unexpected ways.

Like a thousand points of light, YOU can reach more listeners now—by getting targeted messaged to specific segments of the population who are SEEKING ANSWERS RIGHT NOW.

What content are they looking for? Take a look at the following topics that are trending on Google... and the questions people are asking:

- Beirut... How can a loving God allow such tragedies to happen?

- Hurricane watch... Is this divine judgment? The end times?

- COVID-19... How do we know what's true and what's not?

- The stock market... How do I know God's will?

- Favorite sports teams... Is it right or wrong to kneel?

- Celebrities... Would you vote for Kanye West for president?

- Civil Liberties... How far do we go to protect them?

Chances are you can think of a few past messages that would speak into any of these topics. Those are a thousand points of connection that can spark meaningful conversations. A thousand ways you can attract potential listeners.


When people can't come to church, it's time for the church to come to the people.

We're being called in this unprecedented time to move out and reach more people with the message of hope they need, right where they are.

Because church
is not a place.
It's a people.

And you can reach more people online, today.

[Build Connection in this section]
Church as we know it is being changed forever.
But change has never stopped God's church from moving forward.

All around the world, people are experiencing a rebirth in worship. And it's happening on-demand, and online.

This digital transformation taking place has been predicted for decades, the virus just expedited things.

Long after the pandemic is over, the digital transformation that you implement today will continue to help God’s people experience great Bible teaching, find community, and reach a hurting world. 

Church has been changed forever—but this is not a reason for despair. It's cause for HOPE.


You Can Be There to Spark Conversations That Matter

Mobilize your church with a NEW WAY to spread your message of hope weekly—ONLINE

You have great messages—but few hear them, because you’re limited to the people who sit in your pews, and stumble across your website online.

Still, the message of hope you bring could help so many more people, if only they could find it right when they need it. Where are they?

Today's audiences are voraciously consuming content 24/7. They're mindlessly browsing social media. They're gaming. They're binging Netflix. They're surfing the web and bombarded with noise.

WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO CAPTURE THOSE LISTENERS by making your church a DISTRIBUTION hub for God’s Word.

Here's Pastor Ron's Story... and how an unexpected encounter ONLINE led to an extraordinary event!

This Can Be YOUR Church's Legacy
How do shepherds seek today?

Alex is just one of the thousands of people who are out there waiting for your message. The Word of God, at just the right time. The one thing he needed was someone to be there for him, reaching out, when he was ready—just as Pastor Ron was. Just as Apex Church had been mobilized... through us.

Can you imagine leading a church that trained, ready, equipped and mobilized to be there, right at that critical moment?

With the right digital strategy, this can be YOU.

Make a decision to BE that church.

If you're like most churches rocked by this global crisis, you've made some difficult choices and hard cutbacks. You've had to let go of good people and the ones who are left are overstretched and overtasked.

Reconstructing your church requires that you do more with less. And that's where we can help—it’s what digital does best.

IMAGINE if you had an experienced staffer who had a track record for making things happen in a short period of time, who was an expert in all things digital, who knew the best, most effective and least costly way to stretch your fundraising dollars and generate a continuous stream of revenue to support your many ministries.

How much would you expect to pay for that kind of expertise? A full-time staffer with benefits and up-to-date digital skills would cost you a minimum of $70K annually, plus benefits and overhead.

But what if you were able to accomplish that much and more… without hiring new staff? What if you could get your podcast ministry up and running, reaching new listeners and bringing in new donations within 3 months? And what if you could do it all with your existing staff, a college intern, or even a volunteer?

Here's how we can help you make that happen... at a fraction of the cost.

[This video will talk about our experience working with top Christian broadcast ministries in the nation, as well as our experience providing best-ever results through digital marketing. We turn these skills into digital gold for you and your church.]
