Sharefaith Gives Churches Ability to Create Powerful and Feature-Packed Apps for Android or iOS
(Medford, OR) November 6, 2014 — Church media company, Sharefaith, announces the release of their new mobile church app builder, giving churches the ability to create their own unique mobile app. The app builder is available for free to all Sharefaith’s Complete Yearly and Website Yearly members.
As a pioneer in the church media field, Sharefaith has long been aware that many churches want a mobile app, but are burdened by the hefty pricetag. Now, Sharefaith is rolling out a solution that is budget-friendly, feature-packed, easy to use, and integrates with it’s website offering and 60,000 worship and church media graphics.
“We wanted to create something that makes it easy for churches to connect with their congregation, while sharing the Gospel globally.” said Hein van Wyk, Sharefaith’s CEO. “Unfortunately, most of what’s available to churches right now, are priced too high.”
Sharefaith focused on creating something that was both easy to use, featured-rich and still able to satisfy the mobile-savvy audience without sacrificing any features.
Like many of Sharefaith’s other award-winning solutions, their mobile app delivers on all fronts. First, it comes at no additional cost to existing customers on the annual Website and annual Compete membership. Second, it uses the same editing platform that website customers are familiar with — the multi-award-winning Sidekick builder. Sharefaith even submits all church apps to the Apple App Store or Google Play to get the app approved and published. Finally, the app itself is packed with powerful features that will benefit all churches.
Today’s apps are more powerful than ever before, and Sharefaith’s solution addresses the need for a feature-packed mobile app. The app can send push-notifications to remind members of special events, prayer requests, nursery duty, or schedule changes. Users can also give financially to the church from the app, using a safe and secure online giving portal. The app isn’t just for communication and tithing, though.
App users also have access to video and audio and any support materials for each sermon or event. In the case of content that is featured on both the app and website, users only need to publish it once, and it will be posted in both places. Apps are complete with all the standard fixtures of a mobile presence — social integration, church information and service times, maps and driving directions, church bulletins and newsletters, and more.
The app is available for both Android and iOS mobile devices, including tablets.
Sharefaith has always been focused on providing cutting-edge tools to churches around the world. “Even though we spend a lot of our time developing new technology, it’s all driven by a single goal,” explains CEO van Wyk. “Our goal is to equip churches with tools that allow them to proclaim the truth.” Like their other solutions, including worship videos, sermon graphics, church websites, and Sunday School curriculum, Sharefaith is committed to giving churches the most advanced solutions at the most affordable price.
A church can now, for only $49/m (billed annually), receive their church app, website and hosting, Sunday school curriculum, 60,000+ graphics and worship presentation software in one membership with unlimited access! Unparalleled in value and price!
