The Sharefaith church mobile app is loved by thousands and rightfully so. It’s not a mobile version of your websites, it’s an actual mobile app that your church congregation can download for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Here are 10 essentials that the Sharefaith Church App has, and we believe every church mobile app should have.

10 Essentials of a Mobile Church App


1. Budget Friendly 

If you are already paying for a church website, media and Sunday School curriculum, paying a hefty price for a church mobile app may not be possible. You want to pick something professional, but surely the cost has to be relational to the return-on-investment you get from the app. Don’t just get a Church App to be cool. It’s a mighty tool with great potential, but should ultimately fit your budget!

2. Unified Editing

Editing should be easy, fast and done in one place. You will want to pick a solution that combines your church website and mobile app editing into one easy solution so you have to only edit once. Update once, publish everywhere!

3. Easy Sermon, Audio and Video delivery 

Folks are on the go. To give them your latest sermon in the form of notes, audio or video, right on their phone or tablet is a huge plus! Your church basically goes wherever they go. You also don’t want to double the work, so make sure your church website builder and mobile app integrate. You publish once, and your media is available on both your website and mobile church app.

4. Daily Devotional & Blog

A great way to connect with your congregation is to share your ministry insights through your blog. Turning it into a daily or weekly devotional is even better. Imagine the cohesiveness and unity when the entire church follows the same devotional. One heart. One mind. Again, the perfect solution would be to blog once, and have your information be visible on your ministry websites, social media and mobile app.

5. Social Connectedness

Instead of having your congregation switch between multiple windows on their mobile device, bring your social media into one spot. Having your Facebook feed, Twitter feed, Instagram etc, connected in one spot makes sharing events, updates and news so much easier!

6. Customized Branding

Your church mobile app should be unique and give you the ability to customize by picking color themes, graphics and more.

7. Bulletins & Newsletter

You may still like to print a bulletin and hand it out. Your church mobile app should give you the ability to add your weekly bulletin or monthly newsletter.

8. No hidden and additional costs

Most current mobile church app providers will charge you a monthly hosting fee, in addition to Apple’s $100/y App Store fee. This adds up. A great provider will combine these fees, and offer a complete package that fits your budget.

9. Complete bundled solution for all your media

Paying one membership fee and getting your Sunday School curriculum, worship software, graphics, church website, hosting and mobile church app included is fantastic! This way it’s all integrated, unified and you update and publish from one platform.

10. No submission to Apple App Store or Google Play needed

Submitting your mobile app, when finished, to the Apple App Store can be frustrating. Doing so on Google Play is a little easier. Your church mobile app provider should include this in your service so you don’t have to worry about it.

      Hi Jason,

      We will for now focus on iOS and Android driven phones and tablets.

  1. Michael Downs

    I am excited about the app for the phones. It is something that I can see making use of for our small church. I would love it if it has a way to accept online giving through the phone. Integrated with something like Easytithe or Givelify or NCS ( I could see where you take those products and integrate them into your app (which sounds better than what they offer) and really serve the churches moving forward!

  2. Aaron

    When will we get access to the app? We already have the package but no access to the app yet.

    • Sharefaith Team

      Hi Aaron, we are set to release late October, early November. Stay tuned!

  3. Juan

    Do you guys have a video or a demo where we could see all these products in action? I currently use many of the items above but have them in separate platforms. Having them all in one place would be great.

    • Hein van Wyk


      Our release date is early in the start of November. Then there will be a video, landing page and all the information you want to see if this service is for you. Sharefaith’s tagline is “All your Church Solutions in one place!” Our entire premise is build upon this concept of combining your solutions. With Sharefaith you then get your church app, website & hosting, Sunday school curriculum, worship software and 60,000+ graphics and videos all for one membership! The App is 100% Free on our Complete Yearly and Website Yearly memberships. Stay tuned!

    Would like to see how it will work for our website. Also do we have to host with Share Faith or can we use our own hosting service.

    • Hein van Wyk

      Jeff, As I posted above to Juan, you’ll have to wait to launch day to see this all in action. Why would you want to host your church app yourself and pay extra for it? Your church app is 100% free, as well as your IOS App store submission fee. We take care of all of that. You do NOT pay for hosting. The Church app is our bonus reward to members on our highest plans which are the Complete Yearly and Website Yearly plan. The App builder is part of your Sharefaith Website Sidekick builder and everything integrates. You want to publish and update once, and then see the results everywhere. Stay tuned! It’s almost here 🙂
