As your church tries to be a place of learning, comfort and community, your message can get drowned out.

Your church needs to ensure that its message rises above the clamor.

To grab the attention of possible members of your church, as well as visitors and members, you need a Church Mobile App that creates value for every viewer!

Surveys show that over 80% of phone activity today happens through mobile apps.

In this new blog post, we'll outline why mobile apps are so essential for church ministry.

The Top 4 Benefits of Using an App for Your Church.

Does your congregation REALLY need you to relate to them through a mobile app? These four benefits may convince you that they do.

  1. A Mobile App Allows The Phone To Become A Mobile Pulpit
    Sunday morning shouldn't be the only time your sermons are available. If you have a mobile church app, recording and embedding your sermons couldn't be easier. This way people who live far away or have other commitments during the time of your service can still stay connected with your message by watching the livestream of the message or other events on their mobile devices or tablets.

  2. A Church App Keeps Up Enthusiasm About Your Services
    You don't want your congregation to forget about your ministry during the rest of the week! Through a mobile app, you can keep them updated on what's happening , including any special speakers or musical events.

    This ensures that people are updated on your offerings so that they stay excited and connected.

  3. An App Can Make Social Media More Meaningful

    To keep your church members involved with the events in your community, it's important to create space for social engagement.

    This can be done by integrating social media such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter into your church's mobile app. By doing this, you can keep your ministry as a hub of communication for the greater community.
