Northland, A Church Distributed of Orlando, Florida has taken its worship services directly to the 400+ million users of Facebook. “The point of being a Christian is to bear the image and good news of Christ everywhere. We hope this new Facebook app will help” explains Nathan Clark, Northland’s director of digital innovation.
When it comes to churches which are “social media conscious”, Northland is, definitely, one of most advanced Faith Based Media 2.0 ministries in America today. Northland’s Facebook app not only allows users to access live streaming worship services, but also to invite their FB friends to join them. In addition, the previous week’s services are available via the app 24/7.

But that’s not all. Ultimately, Northland hopes online worshipers will join a real live community with other believers … or start one. To that end, it is providing tools for online worshipers to start “simple churches” in their own homes to possibly complement worship with the larger congregation. http://www.doingchurchsimply.com.
Until next time, remember, you can do all things through Christ Jesus!
