Need advice: alternative to Facebook for hosting a church live video feed Login/Join

We have a good friend who is pastor of a small church in Maui where we used to live. He is a strong conservative and Trump supporter. I asked him if his church would consider leaving Facebook, now the only host on which one can watch their Sunday service live.

He told me he would LOVE to leave FB, and asked me for help finding another host for them.

Particularly in light of our consensus on the evils of Facebook and YouTube, what would you recommend we try?

Thanks in advance, I know you guys will have the answer.

We recently started live broadcasts on our own YouTube channel. Seems to be working fine.

I’ve been on Livestream video meetings, there might be a small monthly fee for the video source.

I don't know if they have a live stream service, but my church uploads all service videos to Vimeo. Lots of churches do.

Webex is a hard no. I've been using it for a year and it is terrible. Zoom is much better in my opinion.

Vimeo does have a live stream service. Any other thoughts on Vimeo? Anyone dealt with that service?
