How to use Skype for Online Worship

Can we use our Skype account to broadcast our worship service to elderly members?

Who Can I Reach with Skype

Online ministries are discovering that there is a Digital Divide between their ministry and their elderly, poor, and non-English members.

The Blessing of Skype

You know a brand has the ultimate foothold in the marketplace when it becomes a NOUN. You know… like “google it” or “xerox this for me” … well, that’s exactly what happened to Skype. If someone says “Skype Me”, it pretty much means “video call me.”

Some are implementing a Skype hack to make a group call of their church services.

Let’s take a look.

Once you set up a skype account, you’ll get a user name –and much like social media – you can find other skype users and video chat with them. All of this is free and it’s all over data – but if you want to take your communication to none skype users’ mobile and landline phones, you’ll need to pay for a subscription.

It’s just a few bucks and gives you unlimited minutes.
