At the very top of our blog page is our tagline, “Where tech meets ministry.” This is exactly what we will strive to provide with The Church Blog. We want to provide current, relevant content on some of the industry’s top products and media channels. Here are some of the topics we will regularly be blogging about:
Church Management Systems
Abbreviated as ChMS, these innovative and user-friendly platforms make your digital ministry dreams a reality. With a variety of features ranging from attendance tracking to child check-in options, these systems will have your church covered. If you’re looking for a way to make sure that no one slips through the cracks, we will make sure to update you on everything you’ll need to know about using a ChMS.
Gone are the days of receiving checks and cash to slowly gather and put into your church’s giving report. While passing the plate is still an option, the faster and more convenient method is online giving. Online giving provides your congregation members a way to tithe or donate at their convenience, and with online and mobile options, you’ll even begin to see an increase in recurring donations. This is a quickly evolving field, and we’re here to keep you up to date on giving trends and any industry news.
If Tweeting out what you ate for lunch isn’t your idea of fun, don’t worry. Our goal with social media updates is to provide you with what is popular and trending in the church community. We want you to be able to engage with your congregation members, find out how to share relevant content and learn about what kinds of social media channels are best for your church. #HereToHelp
If a lot of your church members are glued to a smart phone, we are going to help you use this to your advantage. Mobile-friendly websites, ChMS options and even text giving options will all be discussed, as this is the next big thing in church tech. We are excited to keep you updated with what your church will want to know.
A church website can definitely grab a visitor’s attention, and keep your members informed of any church news. Did you know that in a 2012 state of the online congregation survey, 46% of church attendees said that the church website was ‘somewhat’ to ‘very important’ in their decision to attend the church? While it seems like websites can be basic, there are quite a few industry trends that change frequently. Our promise is to keep you informed of what could be changing, what’s working and what may just need to go!
We hope that you enjoy The Church Blog, and we invite your feedback!
