If you’re looking at this article it means your a Premium Member (meaning you either have a web deluxe package or the master package). What this means is that uploading a sermon is very simple for you.
We discuss both of the following options with you once we launch your website. There are only two possible scenarios:
YOU ALREADY HAVE EXPORTED AUDIO IN A COMPRESSED FORMAT (USUALLY MP3)
If this is the case, and your audio is below 64mb, all you have to do is log in to your members portal, then either scroll down to the “upload a sermon” section or click “updates.” Simply fill out the information (only the Title and Audio File are required), and click “upload.” That’s all you have to do! We’ll take care of the rest.
YOU HAVE THE FILE IN AN NON-COMPRESSED FORMAT (AAC OR SIMILAR FORMAT)
Again, this should be old-hat, we’ll cover this with you personally. If you have uncompressed audio files–whether they’re Garageband, Logic, Audition or another Application, simply save the file in the format you have and upload it to the Google Drive account we have set up for you. You can then email us or use our “update content” form on the members portal to let us know you’ve uploaded the sermon. From there we’ve got it. We’ll take the uncompressed file, edit it, optimize it, compress it, and upload it for you.
PROPOSED TIMELINES AND EXPECTATIONS
We want to make sure all of our partner churches have their sermon audio online as soon as possible. We recommend the church has a system in place (and we’ll help you develop it) to get us the messages on Sunday or Monday so that all sermons can be edited, compressed and uploaded by that Tuesday. If we receive an audio file later than that, please give us 1-2 business days to post the sermon.
