To host the simulcast, you must have an internet connection speed of at least 10 mb/second. You can check your connection speed at speedtest.net.
Part of MarriageToday’s vision is to connect people with the local church. Because of this, we do not allow couples to host the simulcast in their home.
There are very few technical requirements to host a simulcast. You must have a hard wired internet speed of 10mb/second or more, as well as a screen that has the ability to stream the internet onto it. Multiple test days will be required to ensure a successful simulcast experience.
MarriageToday has scheduled breaks where both the live audience and simulcast host sites will take breaks together.
If your church does not reach the minimum of 5 couples, your church will just need to pay for the remaining number of spots so the total registration number is ten attendees.
MarriageToday does everything we can to make sure that the Simulcast stream does not have any interruptions. However, if this should happen, we will provide each Host Site with downloadable sessions that can be downloaded ahead of time to have as a backup. Testing the feed will help reduce the risk of this happening.
Yes! We offer add-ons for your church to purchase for Giveaways, door prizes, or a small bookstore! These come with MarriageToday products at an amazing 50% discount! Once you have purchased and received the add-on, you are free to resell the products and keep the proceeds. Unsold product is not returnable to MarriageToday.
We have two different pricing options available to accommodate churches of all sizes. To learn about our pricing options, fill out a host application and one of our Simulcast Coordinators will contact you within 24 hours with more information.
MarriageToday will provide you with a basic troubleshooting checklist. If you experience problems, those troubleshooting solutions should be able to fix any technical issues you are having. If those troubleshooting tips do not work, we will provide you with a technical support line to call and talk to one of our technical support analysts.
While we encourage churches to sign up now to allow time for promoting the event, registration is open up until the event.
Yes! We have an OnDemand option available for churches that are not able to tune in to the live stream. The OnDemand option becomes available directly after the conference and is available for 90 days following the conference.
Many church leaders and members will inquire on behalf of their head pastors. You can download the simulcast guide on this website to share with your senior pastor.
