Why on earth would a church need a Mobile Phone App?

Consider that there are 5.2 BILLION mobile phone users in the world today. What if you could easily connect to the thousands that live near your church for free? What if you could effortlessly send them invitations, sermons, announcements or other important information. Better still, what if you could instantly collect donations from them with one click from their cell phone or hand held device?

Wouldn't that be cool?

Do You think it's too hard to do?

Do you think it would cost you too much?

Here are some reason you should consider having an App for your church.

Relevancy - Churches should not have as their main goal to be relevant. Yet there is nothing wrong with being technologically relevant. Having an app shows your church understands we are in the 21st century.

Effectiveness - The church is to be where people are. Look around you the next time you are in public at how many people are fiddling with their smart phones. To be effective with our message we have to take it to where people are. The following are some ways that Apps can increase your effectiveness and additional reasons why you need an App for your church.

Improved communication - I often hear from church members that their church poorly communicates what is happening at the church to members. Apps can help you improve your communication to members. The communication is at their finger tips, on their smart phone!

Instant communication - Imagine that it starts snowing a blizzard on Saturday night. You are forced to rethink what times the services will begin or IF they can be held at all. Using your App you can push information to your members about your last minute plans. The same App can be used in a variety of ways to instantly update members.

Ease in giving - Online giving is on a huge rise. Many of my clients see anywhere from 30% to up to 50% of their giving coming electronically. Having an App allows people to easily give to your church even when they are at the beach!

Inexpensive - You may be surprised at how easy and affordable it is for churches to have their own customized mobile phone app created. With new advances in technology, it's entirely possible to have an excellent app created for under $500!

Limitless opportunities - I have only touched on a few of the pluses of having an App for your church. The possibilities grow each and every day. Having an App gives you a platform to build upon. Not having an App leaves you in the 20th century.
