Televangelism Has Started to Come to Netflix

BY RELEVANT CULTURE February 02, 2016

You may start noticing a new trend on Netflix. This December, sermon series from four prominent pastors—Joyce Meyer, Steven Furtick, Andy Stanley and Ed Young—were all added to the streaming content platform as part of a new effort led by Young to get Christian teachings on Netflix. In an interview with RNS, the executive director of marketing for Joyce Meyers said that Netflix asked that the pastors avoid promoting products and soliciting donations, but was relatively open when it came to the content of the sermons. Young told RNS, “Jesus said that we should become fishers of men. If I’m going to catch the most fish, I’ve got to put a lot of hooks in the water. But I’m most excited about Netflix right now.”
