In 2005, computer programmer and bivocational church planter Mark Steitz Hamblen was approached by several pastor friends in San Diego for help in using a new medium called “podcasting.” Unable to find an easy-to-use system for them to utilize, Mark decided to personally create a way to make it as easy as possible for churches and pastors to place their sermons online, and Podcast Your Sermons was born.
Podcast Your Sermons helped provide some of the financial ability to support Mark and his wife, Alisha, in their full-time missionary service, with Mark pastoring a rural church in the Republic of Ireland from 2007 to 2011. Since returning to live in the States, they have settled in the Boise metro area of Idaho. Mark holds over 30 years of varied programming experience, while Alisha draws on over 20 years experience in graphic design, advertising and promotion.
Striving to help churches and non-profits with a truly easy-to-use website and management system, plus a ministry-minded price, has led to their March 2012 launch of Online Church Solutions. This "All in One Place, All for One Price" service combines the already-created Podcast Your Sermons software (as an add-on option) with a new website builder (Content Management System or CMS) and church management software (ChMS), all handwritten by Mark.
While Podcast Your Sermons has become part of our Online Church Solutions family, we still offer it as a standalone product. If you just need podcasting, click here to get started.
