Grow Your Congregation Wherever They Are
Reaching Your Congregation Wherever They Are
By: Patrick Walters, GODCASTING™
Local Christian traditional radio is booming with the emphasis on local. If you live within 3.5 miles from an LPFM signal, you can listen1 to the Word. More than a third of low-power FM (LPFM) radio stations — whose non-commercial radio signals don’t reach farther than about 3.5 miles are religious, according to a poll from the Pew Research Center. Additionally, these stations have all of the costs associated with operating a traditional Full Power commercial radio station and are subject to all FCC and governmental rules and regulations.
Today, there’s an alternative. GODCASTING™ is a cloud-based, global platform without the geographic limitations or operational costs associated with traditional (AM/FM) radio.
Every congregation or religious organization can have its own 24/7 radio station for less than $19 a week with the lowest priced plan available at GODCASTING.FAITH.
One quarter of Americans frequently (10%) or sometimes (17%) listen to Christian radio according to Christianity Today.1 In a LifeWay Research survey of more than 2,000 Americans in 2014, those who attend church once a week are more likely to listen frequently (27%) but, surprisingly, more than a quarter of those who are unchurched also frequently or sometimes listen to Christian programs on the radio (26%).1
Four out of five Christian radio listeners said spiritual growth is the main reason they tune in (80%), according to a 2016 survey by Finney Media of more than 23,000 listeners in the United States and Canada.
They’re also flipping on the radio to hear worship music (79%) and to be encouraged (77%).
GODCASTING™ allows every religious leader or organization to spread the Word through a medium already used by the faithful.
