Community Bible Church in San Antonio, Texas, launched CBC Online using Media Social in July 2010. In the first week, 300 people logged on to participate in a worship service. Six months later, they began broadcasting 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to a global audience—now representing more than 100 countries. The church has more than 40 volunteer “hosts” who connect online with viewers throughout the day and 106,000 Facebook fans of their online campus, 30,000 of whom live in the Philippines.
