You may observe that some churches provide their full worship service on YouTube, while others only provide the sermon (or message or homily); some channels are named for the church, some for the pastor, some for a ministry name. It is challenging some times for music to be included during a worship service due to copyright matters, so that may well be a legitimate reason for not having worship music available for on-demand viewing and listening.
