The many uses of YouTube playlists

Have you tried any of these ways to use YouTube playlists for your church? You could make playlists for:
Events like
—Easter egg hunt
—Youth Camp

—Already grouped by topic
—Also grouped by time

—Biblical perspective on…


—Find services or events from the past based on time

—Instead of teaching the same class multiple times, record it and save it.
—Classes for kids during summer
—Classes to help new Christians

—Resources from other ministries
—Resources (in hidden playlists) for other ministries

Use playlists as a way to organize what you have and a way to control who sees what. Remember that playlists can be public (everyone can find and see them), private (only people you specify can find or see them), or unlisted (people can’t find them unless they know about them).
