LOS ANGELES, March 13, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ -- With churches taking precautionary measures or being forced to close their doors due to the Coronavirus outbreak, church media consultant Phil Cooke shares critical elements pastors need to know for livestreaming their services in a Facebook Live Event at 11:00 a.m. PST today. This live event will equip pastors and ministry leaders with 11 actionable steps covering both the technical and spiritual aspects of an online church service.

"For all the criticism pastors have received for live streaming over the years, suddenly in the age of the Coronavirus, those pastors are looking smart – and downright prophetic," shares Cooke.

Many pastors lag behind in implementing technology to reach their communities. He reassures pastors that, "if fears of the virus or anything else keeps your people away, they can still be impacted by your services in the privacy and safety of their home."

Cooke will share steps pastors and church media directors can take, whether they've never streamed before – or they're increasing their online efforts as the government cracks down on large gatherings in attempts to contain the coronavirus. His talk will include a free downloadable whitepaper to help pastors stream effectively. "The bottom line is that if the early church had access to the technology we have today, they would have used it," states Cooke.

Phil goes live at 11:00 a.m. PST today, March 13, 2020. Watch the live event on Phil Cooke's Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/philcookepage/.
