Most of the work done for LG Ministry is done by Cougan Collins as a labor of love. However, to reach the world, it takes donations to be able to promote our program and to maintain and purchase the necessary equipment and software to produce quality videos.
While there is still a need for video programs to be on television, we are focusing on social media by advertising on Facebook. We are spending $100 a week to advertise our videos, which is far less than what it would cost to have our program on television using multiple stations.
However, we are receiving far greater results and feedback in our comment section on our
Facebook page then we have from anything we have put on television. More people are watching sermons through social media than on traditional television. The great thing about our video program being on YouTube and on Facebook is its 24/7 availability to everyone who has access to these platforms.
Paul Mays, a faithful Christian, helps maintain the comment section on our Facebook page so that potential souls for the Lord get immediate feedback or answers to their questions. We have had great results. Our numbers from April 2021 are as follows:
· Promoted six videos - $450.
· 78,000 saw the advertisements.
· 2,391 clicked on the link to watch the video.
· We had 310 comments, 50 shares, and 307 likes.
Due to the prevalence of social media, this is a great place for programs like ours to be. Several congregations in the United States and other countries use our videos for their Bible classes, and some Christians who don’t have access to a local congregation use our videos as part of their home worship.
My main goal is to let people know about our program. However, my second goal is to continue to grow LG Ministry so we will be able to grow our outreach to the world through the use of social media. Our program is an effective tool to spread the Word and win souls to Christ. We receive many emails and comments of thanks from people who have been restored, encouraged, and brought to Christ through our teachings.
With your support, we can promote God's Word and the great lessons that come from it to the world. Will you help us plant more seeds? We offer multiply ways for you to give. You can give using PayPal or Venmo above by clicking on the images, or you can send a check to the following address:
