Smart idea, @andrew_amann1. I know many churches have moved to Zoom or similar tools. In your POV, why hasn't that been sufficient?

Hi all! My name is Stephanie Antonucci Leathe, co-founder of Altar. We are a product born out of the disruption COVID-19 has caused to churches. In April, we realized that churches don't have any simple options to do more than just a one-way broadcast. Churches are meant to be a two-way relationship... so we started building a platform that lets you do two-way live-stream. We know apps and we know churches. Collectively, our team has built over 40 live apps with 3 million users, has 15 years experience in the church, and 10 years experience building companies. Let us know what you think and please provide feedback in the comments below!

You can tune in to your church or other churches when you are not at home and traveling.

@jean_amann Yes! The benefits go beyond just COVID season. You could participate in your church's activities and events from anywhere.

What happens after COVID? Do you think people will still want to do this?

@partha_sundaram great question. People will definitely go back to their buildings and meet in person. We think that this model is here to stay for a lot of religious communities. Just like online shopping, habits are being reshaped.

Thank you @rrhoover. Some people are not comfortable going back into a church yet, so churches have the challenge of producing a hybrid service for both people in the church and at home at the same time. We think this model is here to stay. Doing hybrid ministry well means including virtual attendees as full participants, not just viewers at home. This means allowing members to read scripture, lead a song, or give a sermon from home and appear on screen in church and on screen to people watching from home. We create an easy way to control the video feed for both audiences. We design every feature for a church purpose. As an example, churches wants to be able to push the same slides to the people in the church building as to the audience at home. We allow the feed to go both ways.
