Altar Live is a streaming and video conferencing technology built specifically for hybrid ministry to increase community engagement. With tools for church leaders to easily present and members to fully participate from home or in-person, the Altar Live solution provides religious communities one platform for all their virtual needs.
As the disruption of COVID-19 caused churches and faith communities to move online, leaders struggled to transfer the church community experience to this new medium. Many found the technical requirements of streaming a sermon for a large group difficult and overly complicated. Those that managed to set up a live stream or video conferencing solution still missed the personal engagements between members that was a key part of bringing the community together.
Using her background in Christian higher education and entrepreneurship, Stephanie reached out to pastors, priests, and faith leaders to discuss the unique problems they faced during these challenging times.
Stephanie worked with us as part of our internally funded ventures so 923 Digital could support a passionate founder serving an important industry. We built a worship platform that allows churches to manage sermons and events through a single tablet or computer. The solution has all the functionality built in to allow church leaders to easily share slides, manage multiple presenters, chat with attendees, and engage with their community.
The most important feature is the online engagement platform, which allows the church to create breakout rooms and lobbies before and after the sermon.
Facilitating personal discussions around their events brought back the community engagement churches had missed since moving online. These communities are brought back together with the tools necessary to make it through COVID with faith.
