Technology has advanced so much in the last few years, it is only natural for churches to learn to incorporate these new innovations into their worship services. If you wonder why its so important, then lets begin by looking at a few statistics that may surprise you…

99% of US households own at least one TV
In US households, the TV is on an average of 6 hours per day.
The youth in America watch TV an average of 1500 hours per year
