I hope by now you are convinced, as I am, that churches should be sharing sermons thru podcasting. I also hope you see how easy it can be to get started. If you are serious about getting sermons out to be heard. A podcast channel is one of the best ways to share your content. The thing to do now is to submit your new Soundcloud RSS feed to iTunes. That way sermon content will show up every time you post a new audio sermon.

Creating a podcast channel

You will need accounts and be ready to log in to both.

  1. Apple ID – if you don’t have an Apple ID create one here.
  2. Soundcloud

Using your internet browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer) navigate to https://podcastsconnect.apple.com

Now using your Apple ID, log in to the account. When you have gone thru the login you will come to a screen that looks like this.

Open another window or tab in your internet browser. Navigate to Soundcloud and log in if you have not already. To get to your account information click on the button with three dots in the top right-hand corner. A drop down menu will appear. The option you are looking for is the “settings” menu option. Once you have chosen settings, then you will want to click on “content” in the middle of the window. This will reveal the information about your account. While you are there go ahead and fill in the information you would like associated with your podcast.

Submitting your Soundcloud RSS feed to iTunes

The next step is to copy the RSS feed link. Click on the box and the entire URL will be selected.

Copy and paste this RSS feed URL into the box on the apple website that is located on the left-hand side. Click the submit button located on the right-hand side.

Follow the prompts from Apple to add description and website information for your set up sermon podcast.

If your church set up a sermon podcast or already had a podcast channel? Share the link in the comment section.
