1. Push Notifications Allow You to Communicate With Your Congregation In Real Time
Push notifications work in the same way as advanced text messages. These notifications are an efficient and quick way to communicate with your congregation. Push notifications are a quick and effective way to remind your congregation or send updates. Once your desktop church management software has been launched and introduced to your congregation they can download the app and opt-in for push notifications from your church. Push notifications can be used to communicate many things, including invitations, reminders for events, reminders for calendars, reminders for care groups, conference reminders, reminders about conferences, bible studies, care group meetings, sermon themes, prayer alerts and schedule changes.
2. Donations and tithes should be increased.
When your congregation doesn’t need to wait for Sunday to put an offering in the box, they can tithe anytime using the church app. You might consider combining your tithing with a notification to accept a special offering for a specific need. Your entire congregation can be notified instantly that a family is experiencing financial difficulties and needs assistance. All who get the push notification can go directly to the tithing/donations area and make a contribution. It is quick, easy, secure, and extremely useful.
3. A comprehensive and more powerful Bible study model
You don’t have to limit your Sunday teaching and learning to Sundays. Your Mobile App can be used to combine your blog with sermon audio/video to create a single study tool that will take you and your congregation on a wonderful Bible study journey. Your weekly/daily blog posts, if you are teaching through the Book of Romans for example, can be used to educate/teach/encourage users as well as the Sunday teaching. This is how you work towards a goal. Combining your blog posts with teaching can make a significant impact. Your sermon series on Romans will have ended. By then, your readers/users would have access to consistent study material, along with your sermon audio/video. This will give them a solid understanding of the topic. It’s similar to having a sermon and a commentary. This is far easier, more powerful, and much more exciting than manually doing it on Sunday, then publishing the notes in a newsletter. It is also available worldwide, so anyone can benefit from it.
