The way we consume content is tremendously different than it used to be. Our culture has changed so much just in the last few decade alone.
From Netflix to Facebook, network TV to cable, podcasts, to Periscope, there are so many mediums to broadcast content.
In the past, a pastor would preach a sermon on a Sunday morning and that would be it.
Today, you preach a sermon and it gets recorded. That day or week, your message will be uploaded to a podcast or put on your website as something people can listen to. These are all great places to start.
Another way pastors can reach people beyond the podium by blogging.
I know what you’re thinking. You like the idea of blogging but it’s just one more thing you would have to add to your already crazy schedule.
I recently found a new tool to help you turn your sermons into blogs. It’s called Rev Voice Recorder.
Rev Recorder is very easy, cheap way for you to upload a recording of your sermon, and then have it turned into a transcript. An actual human does the converting from audio to text and they email you a Word document just a few hours later. From there, you can edit and post it as a blog, on your website, or on Facebook.
Their app also allows you to record your voice and then have it converted to text as well.
Now your congregation isn’t just hearing your sermon, they’re also able to read it AND share it.
This will be a HUGE benefit for you, your congregation, and also the people that are on the fringe or want to know more about your church. They can read your blog posts which are essentially your sermons.
P.S. Let me let you in on a little secret…
wrote recorded this post using their app while driving down the road. They emailed me the transcript an hour later. I edited and posted for you to read.
