Our beta test of our Second Life island is going very well.
We will be starting live worship experience in the island this Sunday at 8:00am, 9:30am and 11:00am (Second Life Time…aka PDT)
I have been completely amazed at the response to the island from within Second Life. I have personally interacted with hundreds of visitors from around the world on the island over the last few weeks…many who are not at all familiar with LifeChurch.tv and simply found it by searching from within Second Life. There have already been several stories in just the last few days from staff or volunteers that have been able to share Christ with people who are coming to the island for answers. You can just feel it…God is doing something.
We actually have had quite a bit of traffic without even launching our live experience yet. Second Life has their own unique traffic count that is not a count of people, but instead some special number that reflects the amount of avatars combined with the amount of time they spend on our island. Because of our traffic count…we appear at the top of search results for the terms “church”, “Christ”, “Jesus” and in the top 6 results for “video”, “fun”, “free stuff”, “clothes” oddly.
These are a few companies that have a presence in Second Life:
On Tuesday, all of their areas had less traffic in Second Life than Experience Island…in fact, all of them combined had less traffic! That just seems crazy to me…but it’s true. God is doing something big…I’m looking forward to seeing it unfold.
