MY MINISTRY: YOUTUBE
I have the opportunity to work as the Broadcast Strategist for Cru's YouTube Channel, creating content to reach people for Christ.
How many YouTube videos do you think are viewed each day?
- 5 billion are viewed each day.
- The average viewing session is 40 minutes long.
- 80% of YouTube's views are from outside the U.S.
All of this means that right now, YouTube is the number one platform to reach young people, not only in the states but around the world today. Remember what I said about the 10/40 window earlier? 97% of the world’s unreached people groups live in the 10/40 window and we only send 4% of missionaries. This means that even though we may not be able to travel there, we can use tools like the internet to reach them digitally.
Falling Plates is one of Cru's YouTube videos designed to help people explore what it means to follow Jesus.
In English alone, it has been viewed over 5.4 million times.
