When a reference is made to mobile apps for small business, a church may not be the first thing that comes to mind. After all, a church is not exactly a small business. But in many ways, a church functions in similar ways, or at least there are overlaps that make a mobile app a great choice for church leaders that are looking for a more cohesive and informed congregation.
Within a church, there is a committed group of people who need to be kept in the loop about upcoming events, about any changes made to a fixed schedule, and who ultimately belong to a community that can be better informed with the help of a mobile application. Seen in this light, a little piece of technology originally pioneered for use in small businesses can make life much easier for someone trying to lead and organize an active congregation.
Understanding this, Holy Cow Apps, one of the premier purveyors of iPhone and Android apps for businesses of every variety, are releasing a new template that will make it even easier for a church leader to deploy this technology in the service of their community. An app template is simply an update on the original software that narrows the focus of the software to specific business niches, enabling anyone working inside of that niche to create an app that has the specific functions that they need.
For a pastor looking to leverage mobile apps to his advantage, there are many ways that this template from Holy Cow Apps makes things easier. Not only can they send their parishioners instant updates on any changes in schedule on the week’s events, whether it is a postponed Sunday service or a cancelled Bible study, they can also provide small synopses of their sermons and even send direct messages to individual members of the congregation.
Anyone who is new to this specific church can be directed to the mobile app, where they will learn more about the specific ministry that is being enacted there, and can also find a GPS map directly to its physical location. This app also allows new members of the congregation to contact the leaders of the church easily and effectively, if they have any questions, comments or concerns that need to be addressed before they become full members.
Ultimately a mobile app is a communication tool, whether it is being used for marketing purposes, or for a church. Holy Cow Apps, whose motive in entering this business has always been to provide simple but effective solutions for those looking to harness the power of iPhone app builders, has followed up their original intentions yet again with the release of this comprehensive template for churches of all shapes and sizes.
