What Features Are Required for a Church App

Thanks to apps, the church can communicate with the community anytime, anywhere, expanding its reach beyond Sunday morning and the church’s physical boundaries. Unfortunately, there have been instances where the app’s users outnumber church members by a wide margin. This typically happens when church members recommend the app, a particular sermon, a blog article, or a daily devotional to friends. Looking at the list below, you will begin to appreciate mobile technology and the potential of church management software.

Gifting via mobile
A mobile solution is relatively simple, especially if your website has a mobile-friendly donating page. If not, changing it is incredibly cheap. Import the web view from your website into your phone instead of using pricey mobile-providing software.

Message notes
If you use a sermons note system, ensure your mobile solution is designed for tablet use. Most people who use this feature do it on an iPad or an Android tablet.

Notifications through Push
Various aspects advance functionality, but Groups are crucial for churches—for example, the capacity to target specific church groups. You don’t want word of the women’s ministry to reach the general congregation.

Daily scripture/devotional
Sending daily inspiring content and incorporating it into the sermon is an excellent approach to connecting with the congregation. Automate this if you don’t have the time or resources to do it by hand. Several free providers offer messages that can regularly update the app.

Play sermon recordings on video
Most churches upload their sermons on YouTube or Vimeo, which is a simple functionality to use. From that point forward, your app is instantly updated if Vimeo or YouTube is updated.

On your phone, you will receive a reminder of the event, driving instructions, and the approximate time you should leave your current position to arrive on schedule. Any event should surely see a boost in attendance as a result!
