Here are some of the benefits that make mobile apps such powerful tools for strengthening the bonds of your religious community.
Mobile apps can include message boards, surveys, Q&A sessions with leaders, and push notifications! It's also easy to share information such as schedule of programs, hours of Masses, contact information for organizational leaders, the address of the main facility, and more. Mobile apps make it easy for community members to get in touch, even when they're on the go.
Mobile apps are great way to solicit contributions. Even if community members aren't inclined to donate, solicitation messages can contain invitations to share donation links via social media. Asking for contributions can be limiting, but mobile apps allow you to open up creative ways to engage community members in fundraising initiatives using various channels.
Video & Audio sharing of Masses, Events, and Daily Readings
When community members can't make it to events, video can easily be uploaded and shared via mobile app or website. Other related information (like audio of the Daily Readings or Sunday Gospel Reflections) can also be shared in this way. This allows community members to connect and maintain their routine even when they're away or unable to attend mass or events in person.
Support for parishioners
Parishioners sometimes need a channel through which they can share struggles and support each other, and mobile apps can meet this need. Some parishes even use apps that allow parishioners to submit and fulfill prayer requests. In addition, various support services can be connected to a mobile app, enabling parishioners to find the help they need more easily (and anonymously, where appropriate).
Increase service and volunteerism
By communicating about service and volunteer opportunities via mobile app, a parish or ministry can remind community members about these opportunities at off-times. It also becomes possible to link to related information, video, and more, which enables people to learn about what is available. Extra information and rich content can often be a big driver of increased participation.
