CRBC: Thankful for Ten Years of Ministry with Sermonaudio.com!
CRBC got a nice gift in the mail recently from sermonaudio.com: A mug marking ten years of our church's broadcasting sermons, teaching, book reviews, podcasts, etc. on this platform.
As I post this, we have 1,487 messages archived at our sermonaudio.com site. As of the end of 2019, over 203,000 of our messages had been downloaded from this site. Last month, December 2019, for example, 3,751 messages were downloaded from our site by listeners in 47 US states and 49 other countries (from the UK to Kenya to Vietnam, among others).
Rarely does a week pass without us hearing from someone in the world who is a regular listener to our site. Last Saturday, for example, a brother living in Chicago, a former nominal RC and a refugee from Iraq who came to the US via Syria, and who is now involved in Christian ministry, called to offer encouragement for the resources he found on our site (on what else especially, but text criticism).
Thanks to sermonaudio.com founder Steven Lee, whom I met a few years back in Greenville, SC, when I attended Greenville Presbyterian Seminary's annual theology conference, and his staff, for creating and maintaining this platform to help our small congregation, and many others, to reach a wider audience with our preaching and teaching ministry.
