Newfoundland Corps Embraces Digital Outreach

Conception Bay South corps live-broadcasts services, reaching thousands.

July 27, 2015


The Salvation Army in Conception Bay South, N.L., is taking new steps to spread the gospel online. The corps now live-broadcasts all of its Sunday morning services online through its website, www.salvationarmyincbs.com.

“These are really exciting times in the history of our corps,” says Maurice Collins, information technology sergeant. “Not only is the corps ministering to people inside its walls, but we are reaching people globally.” People from countries such as Israel, Brazil, Jamaica, China, Germany, Norway, Sweden, India, Portugal and Taiwan have tuned into the livestream on a Sunday morning.

The corps has been putting video recordings of its Sunday meetings online since October 2011, but since the beginning of 2015, it has expanded its online presence through social media and seen notable growth. The average number of views per week has grown from 200 to almost 1,000. During the past year, the corps’ videos have been viewed nearly 50,000 times.

“Our local congregation is now global with an average of almost 700 people per service and is growing on a weekly basis,” says Collins. “We are hearing from people all over the world of how God is blessing them through the ministry of our corps.”
