There’s a pretty good chance your ministry accepts digital gifts in some way, shape, or form. A donation page on your website, a mobile app, text giving, and giving kiosks all benefit the overall mission of the church. But, what worked for your church a few years ago may not be the best solution for you today. Online giving providers vary greatly and it just might be time to switch.
There are obvious benefits to having a church app. Ministries can benefit from improved engagement if their church app is done well. When church members are able to stay better connected, communities can thrive. The statistics tell us that people spend three times longer on apps than mobile websites. Your church can and will benefit from a church app that provides tools to increase community, give, watch sermons, and share prayer requests.
Ministry Brands, the leading provider of software solutions for churches, announced today the launch of a new mobile application, MinistryOne. This new app for Apple and Android platforms will offer pastors and church administrators an affordable way to connect their ministry with their members.
Churches are becoming more aware of the importance of mobile tech. Everywhere you look, “mobile” has become a core part of the broader church technology discussion. Mobile engagement via church apps, mobile giving, mobile communication, and mobile scheduling points in the direction that everything is going mobile.
Churches use many apps for presenting media, tracking membership, helping with budgets, and even updating their websites. However, some churches also offer a church app primarily for people who attend the church. They contract with a church app provider to make an app that's branded for their church focused on the needs of people in the pews instead of staff and ministers.
It’s common knowledge that smartphone ownership and mobile internet usage are skyrocketing globally. It’s also common knowledge that, on average, people attend church less frequently and that people tend to write very few checks or carry much cash.
