Study reveals positive impact of digital church
According to “State of the Online Church,” led by Saddleback Church’s Online Campus Pastor Jay Kranda, 59 percent of churches have seen physical growth since launching an online ministry.

The study, conducted last year in partnership with Vanderbloemen and Pushpay, is based on data from 176 online and digital church leaders. Kranda says the evidence is clear and he hopes the study will allay fears that church online isn’t effective in bringing people to Christ or that it would compete with or hurt the local church.

Seventy-five percent of digital church leaders reported that people attended online services first then showed up in person. Many online attendees were found to be living within driving distance of the church, with 42 percent reporting such attendance. ...

I can guarantee you the above certainly made an impression!

DF, you did have quite a few good points! One more that I will add, some churches have gone to contemporary "music" and you can turn the noise down, watching it on the internet, which you can't do in a live service.

Only 176 churches in the study? I'll bet there are more right here on SA that could have been studied.
Although some think that the Internet has meant the end of people gathering together, this study seems to show the opposite.
There are so many churches out there, with eighty five percent having less than one hundred members (at least, in the US), that adding an 'online presence' to them would help increase publicity and therefore attendance.
Also, for young parents, getting the kids out of the house for any sort of program, whether it be Vacation Bible School, or Sunday School, is a real benefit. They will support local parks programs that do the same thing, and even pay for ballet or karate classes for their progeny.
