“Webcaster X1 came into our process beautifully. It’s so simple to connect to the account and to configure and stream to our page. We can just hit start and I know with a dead-set level of confidence that we’ll get a consistent signal to our Facebook page.”
– Pastor David Sisson
After completing the simple one-time authentication to pair Webcaster X1 with their Facebook account and choosing their Facebook page as the streaming destination, the Bridgeway Church broadcast team finds that week to week there is very little set up to do: the live stream to Facebook just works.
Every Sunday before the 9:00 am and 11:00 am services, the broadcast team uses a monitor, keyboard, and mouse connected to Webcaster X1 to set the description for the day’s live stream. When configuration is complete, they simply click start when it’s time to go live.

Bridgeway Church is consistently reaching more than 100 live viewers each week, and even more who watch the video live on demand after the service.
Their initial goal was to service their local congregation, and this has been a huge success, as evidenced by comments from the congregates both online and in person with pastors at the church. Church members are pleased they can watch and join in the service while they are on vacation or have sick children at home.
The live stream also brings joy to those not in the South Carolina area. Some remote viewers watch to see family members who may be serving that week, while others simply find peace and harmony with the messages shared by the Bridgeway pastoral team. As an added benefit, Bridgeway Church has also found that the live streams bring their worship to viewers as far away as Peru, Nigeria, Taiwan, Germany, and Switzerland.
““For us, the big deal is Webcaster X1’s simplicity of use. And the ability to set titles and descriptions before broadcast has proven to be very flexible. We’re really pleased with it.”.”
