– Your Team @ sermon.net
Here is what we have to offer Ministries of all shape and sizes!
sermon.net is an all-in-one Media Storage & Delivery solution – for the Church. We are a safe “home-base” for your media content, and for your online audience. Avoid the pitfalls of the social networks, but use them wisely for additional exposure – if desired. Your Sermon Studio allows you to easily share your content to other platforms, such as YouTube and Facebook. We are a Christian Ministry, serving Christian Ministries. No Ads – No Garbage
The Sermon Studio is what we call our browser-based Media Storage & Delivery platform. The Sermon Studio, by sermon.net, provides Ministries with the knowledge, support, and tools for providing online access to their Audio, Video, and PDF files, as well as Live “real-time” Broadcasts. Their audience can listen/watch through just about any device that has an internet connection (phone, tablet, computer, smart TV, etc…). A Pastor/Ministry can start small with a simple audio podcast that they summit to iTunes, along with a player embedded directly into their own web site. Or, the Ministry can use every tool in the Studio’s tool-box for an amazing Live and On-demand audio & video presentation throughout their web site(s), podcast feeds, and custom Apps.
Feel free to create your own account to test / experiment with.

SPECIAL OFFER FOR YOUR MINISTRY!
* Getting Started Tutorials
You are not alone! All Support is free to ensure your broadcasting is a success… Go Team. : )
* Usage & Billing plans
If you anticipate that your Studio’s usage will surpass the free 2 GB allotment, you can choose between a GB Bundle package (which does not expire with time), or a recurring Monthly License plan. There are no long term contracts (month-to-month only), you can modify or downgrade your plan at any time.
* Why Upload? …Live Stream instead!
You may not realize it, but Live Streaming is not complicated. In fact, you may already have all you need to make it happen. Following a Live Broadcast, the media can be added to your Archive (in whole or in part) for on-demand playback by your web guests. All you do is start and stop your stream… no more uploading!
