As guests arrive to your streaming service, their appearance is announced in the scrolling chat area. Both members and guests can interact using the online chat room that scrolls during the message. You can jump in and interact, or sit back and watch. You can even hide the chat if you prefer. As the online campus pastor, you can welcome new guests, add commentary to the message being presented and pray with those online. As the administrator, you have moderator capabilities within the chat room. You can remove anyone at any time for any reason. You're in control!
As new guests arrive at your live streaming service, their Facebook profile photo or guest photo will appear in the automated Who's Attending area on your site. You can private message anyone by clicking on their photo. The system will open a chat window (just like Facebook Messages) where you can chat privately with the individual.
Your online pastor and others online can use this feature to pray privately with each other or just communicate a privately with their friends online.
Once enabled and customized by your ministry, specific targeted automatic follow up emails will be automatically sent to your online attenders after they attend your service.

As the administrator to your own interactive streaming web campus, you can upload your teaching notes to the notes tab of the platform.
For example, pastors can summarize the main points of sermons, list further spiritual questions for congregation members to ponder, and add important church announcements.
Your attendees can then fill in the blanks, enter their own notes, highlight items and even print the notes on their local computer.
As guests arrive to your streaming service, a push pin is placed on your map showing where everyone is attending. You'll be amazed as you get visitors from around the globe!

We have some of the best tools for your online attenders. Your viewers can sign up to receive an automated reminder (text or email) letting them know your services are about to begin.
During the service, the viewer can click the "Need Prayer" button to be automatically connected with one of your prayer warriors for private prayer. No other streaming platform can compare with StreamingChurch.tv for doing real ministry online.
Your live streaming site comes with a "dynamic zone" on the page. You (as the administrator) have a set of pre-defined items that you can insert dynamically onto the live streaming page. As soon as you select a new dynamic item, the web page of all your online attenders will automatically update showing this new content.
So now during the service, you can "pass the plate" by displaying your link to your online donations button, or provide a link to more information on a song during the worship, or provide the sermon notes, or invite online attenders to pray with the web pastor. You can create as many dynamic items as you wish. Your options are unlimited!
