That aims to not only keep young members interested in its services – three on Sunday and another Wednesday evening – but also to draw online viewers after the fact. For instance, Roberts’ sermon “Five Keys to Identifying Your Soulmate” has had more than 500,000 online views.
Roberts grew up in Watts and worked as a speaker at universities, religious and corporate events before starting his church in 2004. Back then, it had just 19 members. One Church started streaming services in 2011, trying to expand its reach.
“We wanted to continue this modern movement by making the One Church experience available to more people by expanding the audience and were able to do so by utilizing our digital content,” he said.
The online services drew few viewers at first, but One Church has lately stepped up its social media efforts, posting and sharing more to bring attention to its online content.
