The impact of online audiences on preaching ministries in local churches
John David Ellis
This study explored ways that pastors whose sermons are posted online as audio recordings address the needs and concerns of their local congregations. Employing qualitative research, the author reviewed pertinent literature and interviewed seven Christian pastors who preach to local congregations and whose sermons are podcast. The study found reasons to be concerned that podcasting pastors' sermons might alter the way they preach to their congregants. However, it also revealed that there are practices that can be employed by pastors whose sermons are podcast that enable them to continue preaching effectively to their church members.
