Interworship Forum Contributors

Interworship Forum Contributors are a non-membership category of World AWAKE. The InterWorship Forum is a new and evolutionary concept in on-line interfaith worship and spiritual outreach on a global level. Anyone connected to the internet from anywhere in the world will have access to the world's worship services. We see this as a powerful tool for interfaith education and understanding, one that promotes world peace. Through this forum, spiritual seekers, those affiliated with a congregation and those who are not, will have an opportunity to worship, learn and explore via their digital devices, from the comfort and convenience of wherever they may be. Interfaith seminaries and other educational institutions may use this forum as a teaching aid. As a member of the InterWorship Forum, World Awake supports and promotes your organization in the following ways:

  • We feature videos of your worship services and events via YouTube on the InterWorship section of our website.
  • We promote your services and events, including videos, on all of World Awake's Social Media.

You will be welcomed at our spiritual retreats and our zoom networking sessions. At these sessions we share ideas as to how we can better support one another. We encourage our members to share their needs in order to better support their efforts for good.

Requirements

We prefer all videos to be hosted in your spiritual organization's YouTube account. Here is the easy 4 step process that is needed.

  1. Create a new YouTube account or use an existing YouTube account at https://www.youtube.com.
  2. Create a YouTube Playlist. A Playlist is much like selecting a few songs from your entire music list. It is the same with videos. You may title your videos as to the type of service. For example, you may list specific holiday/holy days services.
  3. Send World AWAKE your link to your Playlist.
  4. Continue to add to that same Playlist of your specific videos you are desiring, i.e. Sunday Services, Keynote talks, etc.

We require a YouTube Playlist instead of a YouTube Channel to allow for specific videos to be displayed rather than all videos displayed. The image below indicates the PlayList selection in YouTube.

Questions: How many videos can be shared to each spiritual organization, church or affiliation?
Answers: If your organization has a YouTube account established, then World AWAKE can share the videos from that Playlist as they are added.

This depends on how many videos are in your Playlist.
