The COVID-19 pandemic has now spread across at least 188 countries and territories, with over 30 million confirmed cases and at least 957,000 deaths. The United States is leading the rest of the countries with nearly 7.5 million cases and 210,000 deaths at the time of this article’s publication. The primary precautionary measures taken to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus are essentially characterized by limiting the number of public gatherings, which is why state and local governments have issued lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, and social distancing measures.
Across several states in the country, these places of worship have also been affected by public gathering restrictions, leaving millions unable to attend religious services. More than a third of all adults in the country attend religious services every week. For many of the people impacted, online evangelism has provided a worthwhile alternative amid such challenging circumstances.
TLD Ministry Evangelistic Radio Network is a popular Christian radio network managed by the TLD Ministries group. The radio network offers its followers many services that they can access from the comfort and safety of their own homes. They can stream Christian talk radio and listen to and watch Evangelistic sermons and religious music.
When speaking about the network’s online video and audio sermons, a senior representative for the TLD Ministry Radio Network said, “Our vast collection of sermon classics and messages available on video and audio formats on our website have proven particularly popular among families during these challenging times. We’ve been told that our programs, including our Bible radio programs and worship music, have played an influential role in bringing families together amid such chaos and uncertainty.”
Digital or online evangelism has grown enormously popular in the U.S. in recent years. In 2020, many churchgoers tune into online Christian podcasts and radio programs to listen to religious sermons and messages to gain some respite during the pandemic. One of the primary benefits of online evangelism is that users can access it remotely, whenever they want, no matter where they are.
In addition to its online sermons, TLD Ministry Radio Network runs live radio programs, a podcast, Christian worship music, and provides access to Bible-teaching resources. The network also sells popular books and learning resources online on its website’s store.
