Your church mobile app is a powerful tool that brings with it great benefits. When your focus is on proclaiming the Gospel, connecting with your congregation and encouraging your flock, you’ll benefit heavily from having a mobile app. There are many exciting possibilities, but these 5 benefits remain amongst the top favorites and are all possible with Sharefaith’s free Church Mobile App, available on all Complete membership plans.

5 Benefits of Having A Church Mobile App

1. Instant Communication With Your Congregation Through Push Notifications

Push notifications are like advance-text-messages. They are an immediate and powerful way to communicate with your congregation. Instead of writing it in a bulletin or newsletter or waiting to announce upcoming events on Sunday, you would simply send reminders or updates using push notifications. Once your church mobile app has launched and you’ve introduced it to your congregation, they can download it, and then opt-in to receive push notifications from your church. Some of the many things to communicate through a push notification would be calendar reminders, event reminders, invitations, conferences, bible studies, care groups, Sunday sermon theme, prayer alerts, schedule changes and many more.

2. Increase in Tithing and Donations

Your congregation does not have to wait for Sundays to place an offering in the box when they can tithe at any time using the church mobile app. Imagine combining your tithing option with a notification and taking up a special offering for a specific need. You can instantly alert your entire congregation that, for example, a family is in crisis and needs financial help. Immediately, those receiving the push notification can hop on over to the tithing/donations section and give to that need. It’s fast, secure, easy, and incredibly functional.

3. More in-depth and powerful Bible study model

Don’t keep teaching and study for Sundays, only. Take your congregation on an incredible Bible study journey by using your Mobile App to combine your blog and sermon audio/video as a unified study tool. If you are, for example, teaching through the Book of Romans, your weekly/daily blog posts can educate/teach and further encourage users in addition to the teaching on Sundays. By operating in this manner, you work towards a goal. Your blog posts and teaching integrate and combine to leave a powerful impact. At the end of your sermon series on the Book of Romans, your users/readers would have had consistent study material given to them, alongside your sermon audio/video, giving them an in-depth understanding on your sermon topic. It’s like having a sermon, and a commentary to go along. It’s much easier, more powerful, and more exciting than just doing this manually on a Sunday and then releasing notes in a newsletter. It’s also global so anyone can benefit from it.

4. Easily educate and attract new visitors

Chances are, new visitors will Google the churches in your area. Your website should come up. There, they can already learn everything they need to know. Your mobile church app, however, takes this further. On your website, you indicate that there is a Mobile App. They download the App, and without being stuck in front of a computer, they can take their time to familiarize themselves with your vision, mission, offering and teaching style. They get a good oversight on who you are and what you are about and will come with much clearer expectations on their first visit. Once they have opted in for push notifications, you can deliver specialized messages to them as new visitors or members.

5. Increase your budget and funding

With struggling budgets, it’s hard to allocate funds, even to worthy technology solutions that could benefit your ministry. Lucky for you, your church mobile app is freely included with your Sharefaith church membership on your Complete plan. That means that your budget and funding towards other projects just went up. No need to pay $600-$1,000 plus monthly hosting charges. Your website integrates with your church mobile app. You edit once, publish everywhere. The savings of having your mobile church app, website and hosting, 80,000 graphics, Sunday School Curriculum and worship presentation software in one membership is not only amazing but unheard of. That’s what makes Sharefaith’s Complete plan the best upgrade ever.

    Any dates yet on a release, and how will subscribers be notified? Also I’m a little unclear about how this app is created? Will Sharefaith author and release the app, or will those who manage their Sharefaith subscription be able to determine what features are available within the app?

        Not being too familiar with this technology, who is responsible for designing the graphic that appears on the mobile device? Also, is there a template/interface for setting up what the app will display or how it functions?

      • Sharefaith Team

        Hi Craig, we will do the majority of the design framework, but the customer will have some personalizing options. More information to come soon!
