Pastor Chris’ Sermon Audio and Video

Pastor Chris @ rockwell.church YouTube Playlist click on top right to see more episodes. The episode above may be cued to show next Sunday.

Many people would rather listen that watch a YouTube video so we take the sermon portion of our Sunday worship service and upload it weekly to 20 different podcast outlets.

Here is a list of my past audio sermons from 2019-2021 linked to their home on the River Rock Church site. I have found people want to know if I am a topical or expository preacher and I am both as you can see from my preaching calendar for the last three years. Starting in April 2020 my messages were pre-recordings for the church at home crowd on Youtube and the Audio sites (live is always better). Most of the sermons before that time were only-audio-recorded and published as a podcast.

Note about the Covid era videos: We had always recorded our church audio sermons and posted them online but we never felt we needed to offer video until Covid forced us to in 2019. Most of those videos were pre-recordings for our church at home crowd. They were recorded in a small room in my basement, all alone in front of a green screen using a cell phone video camera, so the video quality is not the best. We had way more “click through viewers” on Facebook than YouTube or Vimeo. We received a lot of positive feedback and were blessed by some unexpected financial contributions from people who said they found watching our videos encouraging and helpful.
