South African preacher and founder of The Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG), Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has innovatively introduced a platform that can help him connect with his members in this COVID-19 time.
He has introduced a church app called Major 1 Connet which allows members that access to sermons and other church-related materials.
The Major 1 Connect, after its launch, has been downloaded more than 10,000 times on the Google Play Store.
However, the app is not free. For each member who downloaded the app, it is required of him to pay the Cedi equivalent of GHS34 before access can be granted.
According to the church on Facebook, during Bushiri’s last live sermon, 7,000 Major 1 Connect users tuned in to watch him deliver the word of God.
A further six million worldwide allegedly used live broadcasts on Prophet Channel TV, YouTube, and Facebook to watch the sermon.
ECG said it expects more than 25,000 people to use the app to watch the next service.
