Studio Church is a MINISTRY dedicated to encouraging Christians in their faith and introducing new people to God’s amazing grace & love!
In today’s fast moving, highly connected, media rich world, it’s becoming harder and harder to capture the attention of people, especially people who do not attend any church. Studio Church is an online ministry that’s working hard to use today’s Internet and digital technologies to develop ministries that introduce new people to God’s amazing grace and love.
Our vision is to add additional front doors to Jesus and his church. We’re putting the message of the church in a different container in order to help people who do not attend any church take their next step with God. At Studio, encouraging Christians in their faith and introducing as many people as possible to God’s amazing grace and love found in Jesus is our mission. We would love to have you involved!
WHAT we do
Outreach events like no other!
Studio’s Community Church Service is a one of a kind community-wide outreach event that is like no other and designed to encourage Christians in their faith and introduce new people to God’s amazing grace & love. By bringing together the community to create the event, we’re creating a true “community” outreach event. We’re also creating the world’s first crowdsourced church event. By utilizing Internet and digital technology, the CCS will be the first outreach church event that uses the power of crowdsourcing to produce a one-of-a-kind outreach event. Utilizing digital and Internet technologies, we’ll create powerful engaging content for our events produced by talented people from the local community, and from around the world!
Introduce New People to God's Amazing Grace & Love!
Studio’s outreach events are designed to introduce, and re-introduce people in the community to God’s love. When people attend a Studio outreach event, they will be encouraged to take their “next step” by attending a local church service. Studio events were founded with one core purpose in mind – to introduce as many new people as possible to God’s amazing grace & love found in Jesus!
Studio’s strategy includes introducing new people online, to God’s love. According to the Hartford Institute of Religion Research, less than 20% of people in America today are actually in church each week, and yet almost 100% of these same people, are online. At Studio we’re motivated by this simple question: “If so many people are not attending any local church, then how do we as the Church find new ways to connect with them and introduce them to God’s amazing grace and love found in Jesus?” How do we as the Church, stay true to our mission to “Go into all the world” and reach these people that God so loves? At Studio we’re working hard to develop new ways to connect new people to Jesus!
HOW we do it
By design, our monthly CCS community outreach event supports the local church. People who participate in and attend the event will be invited to take the next step in their spiritual journey by attending a local church service.
Our event will be the first church outreach event that will use the power of crowdsourcing to produce our one of a kind outreach events. Using digital and Internet technologies, we’ll create powerful engaging events that includes talented people from the local community, and from all around the world!
Our event will include lots of creativity and creative elements because multimedia and the creative arts has become so widely used in our culture today. Using the same communication style that people use every day, will help us connect them to God’s amazing grace & love!
We will use social media to extend our ministry reach. In today’s highly connected social media world we have been given the unique opportunity to use today’s technology tools to share God’s love with more people in more places than ever before. Our strategy includes using the amazing power of social media to promote the CCS outreach events in the community before, during, and after the events.
Innovation Through Collaboration
The best teams and event content spring from collaboration with many people. By using today’s Internet technology and crowdsourcing, the CSS will be able to collaborate with anyone, anywhere, in the world, making our community outreach events truly one of a kind!
A Place To Grow Spiritually
When a group of Christians come together to work on a common project something special happens, we learn more about each other, and how God has worked in our individual lives. Sharing and hearing each other’s God stories as we serve together helps us grow spiritually and brings great encouragement to our lives!
THE VISION of Studio Church is to create community-wide outreach ministry events that encourage Christians in their faith, introduce new people to God’s amazing grace and love, and create a bridge for them to the local church.

Hello! My name is Barry Whitlow, and I’m the Minister and Founder of the Community Church Service. Over the past twenty years I’ve had a number of professions, but I’ve really had only one job – helping churches use technology and the Internet to accomplish their mission. Through the years I’ve been honored to have served churches as a pastor, a large church staff pastor, media director, video producer, social media manager, and website designer. I’m now taking what I’ve learned to innovate new ways to reach new people with God’s amazing grace & love.
Experience – Over the past 20+ years I’ve helped a variety of churches use technology and media to accomplish their mission. Through the years I’ve served churches as a pastor, a large church staff pastor, church media director, video producer, social media manager, and website designer.
Motivation – My motivation for launching the Community Church Service is summed up in this question: “If so many people are not attending any local church in our communities, how do we as the Church connect with them and introduce them to God’s amazing grace and love found in Jesus? How do we as the Church, in today’s changing culture, stay true to our mission to “Go into all the world” and reach these people that God so loves?
My Story – In my early 20’s I felt hopeless and alone, until one day I was introduced to Jesus. Ever since, my goal and passion has been to encourage Christians in their faith and introduce as many people as possible to God’s amazing grace and love found in Jesus.
who STUDIO benefits
• The Local Church – Our outreach events are designed to be a front door to the community and a point of connection to the local church. At the end of the our monthly CCS event, those in attendance who do not have a church home will be invited to “take the next step” by attending a weekend service at a local church.
• The Community – Going into all the world (Matthew 28:16-20) in 2019 is much different than in days gone by. Today, to reach our world different approaches are needed because our world has changed. Most in today’s culture do not attend any church and that’s why creating new places where new people can be introduced to God’s amazing grace and love, and the local church, is so important. This strategy not only strengthens and grows the local church, but it also strengthens the community.
• The Body of Christ – When a wide variety of people from the community participate in and attend the same outreach event, people in the community within their circle of influence also attend, including many who do not know Jesus or attend any church. When that happens, new people are introduced to God’s love and to the local church!
