NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Drew Porterfield spent last Christmas sick in bed—unable to attend his church’s traditional service. Since he couldn’t worship with his local church family, Porterfield tried to find a virtual Christmas service online. That was more difficult than he expected, however.
“This sparked an idea,” he said. “What if someone were to offer programming of churches’ Christmas worship services and stream those to virtual audiences so they can experience services at home?”
A few months later, as the coronavirus pandemic began sweeping the globe and making its way across the U.S., Porterfield’s idea had bigger implications than he first envisioned.
“We now have a vast population at home this Christmas unable to participate in person for worship services,” said Porterfield, a broadcast engineer at LifeWay Christian Resources. “Through ‘A LifeWay Digital Christmas,’ we want to expand the reach of local churches and enable people around the world to worship and celebrate the gospel wherever they find themselves this season.”
LifeWay will host virtual Christmas worship services this season for the following churches. For live service times, visit DigitalPass.LifeWay.com.
