Podcasting 101

Well, I know I said that it would not be until the 20th that I returned, but I thought I’d drop in for a second and mention a new feature that you can avail yourself of, if you’re so inclined. Our church has just not begun offering our services as a podcast. Thanks so much to the efforts of one Cory Miller who held my hand and walked me through the process as part of his phenomenal resources offered on churchcommunincationspro.com. If you are interested in subscribing to the podcast, you can do so by clicking on the little orange button below.

If you’ll notice, I also have a media player to the right that allows you to listen to the messages as well.

We’ll see you in a few days.

Micah is a husband to Tracy & a daddy to Grace, Kessed & Haddon. He’s Senior Pastor at Brainerd Baptist Church in Chattanooga, TN. Most of all, he’s a debtor to grace.

  1. Brother Micah,
    I have been enjoying your messages the last four weeks via podcast, with just one small problem. All but the first message have ended abruptly without completion. This most recent message on Jonah/Missions stopped just a second short of 36 minutes without a conclusion, alter call, amen, or “let’s sing”. I don’t know if you were aware of this, so I thought I would drop you a line. Good, solid preaching, though. It encourages me to hear the Gospel so clearly procalimed in a traditionally non-gospel sermon on giving, as you did in your first one a month ago. I loved the ending of that one where you basically said “If you are not a Christian, then these things won’t mean anything to you.” Not everyone believes that the karigma is a necessary part of every message, for the benefit of the saved as well as the lost. Good job. Praise God.

    Let me know concerning the audio if the problem is on my end. I’ve never experienced this kind of thing with any of my other podcasts.

    God’s blessings, Wayne Hatcher

  2. Wayne-

    I’m pleased that the messages have been a blessing to you. I apologize that they have been cut off. We’ve cut the recording lately after the last of my message, before I begin the alter call because we assumed most people didn’t care to hear that portion. I will make sure that we include that from now on!

    Again, thanks for subscribing to our podcast and may God bless you!

  3. Brother Micah,
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not so much interested in the altar call, it just seemed as if part of the actual message was missing. I record sermons for my pastor, and I don’t include the altar call, cutting the audio after prayer, just before the altar call. Sometimes I will stop the audio when he says “let’s pray.” It just depends on the length of the sermon, or if he includes personal/congregational content in his prayer.

    Keep up the good work. Don’t change the way you record. I just thought there was a glitch or something. Love the Jonah messages.
    In Christ,

  4. Brother Micah,
    Sorry for clogging your in-box, but it just dawned on me that we might be talking about two different “alter calls”. If you mean that portion where you have done with your exposition, and turn to the call for, and explination of a time of response, then yes, include that in your audio. I was meaning the actual “invitational” period where a hymn is sung and people are given an opportunity to come forward to pray or speak with the pastor. I hope this helps.
    In Christ,
    Wayne Hatcher
