How fast do your people receive your emergency cancellations and time-sensitive announcements? Too late to make a difference? For example: Your people show up to an event because they did not know it was cancelled. Or they arrive at 9 am to something that was rescheduled to 11 am - again, because they didn’t know. ...

In this age of “e” everything, it often feels really progressive to scrap the weekly paper church bulletins and replace them with something digital and ‘modern.’ In fact, in our experience, most churches we work with are traditional, contemporary, or both, adapting some of the modern digital tools and strategies at a slow pace. Force-fitting modernism can do more bad than good. In most cases, a hybrid approach is desired—deliberate but slower. Here’s our suggested approach for finding the best church bulletin format for your ministry. Did you ask your...

Just in case you are new to all this… The phrase “text marketing” (or as we called it “text ministry”) is a way you can communicate via text in mass using a cloud-based system or can capture data from your members and visitors via their cell phones. After rolling out a text digital strategy for your ministry, the number your members and visitors use to receive your text messages (sent by service providers) can either be “shortcodes” (usually 5-6 digit numbers) or “long codes” (10-digit, local numbers, i.e., a “regular”...

Business woman working in office. Woman talking on Landline phone.
Picture a church in which: The pastor and several church staff have all shared their mobile phone numbers with their ministry. Church members get confused about which number to use when. Quite often, the pastor and staff receive texts/calls which they need to redirect to the relevant people. Since people are used to texting, they text the church landline, too. Of course, the landline is not text-enabled, so these texts are never received...much less answered. There’s a lot of confusion and time-wasting, definitely not the right conditions for building healthy,...

In Matthew 6, Jesus teaches the people how to pray. Those of us who pray this way, know firsthand the power of prayer, and since we know it, we want to use this power to help others in need. Why a prayer chain? Prayer Chains, as you already know, satisfy our human need to connect with and intercede on each other’s behalf before God. They also amplify the power of the prayer according to Matthew 18:20 which says: “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth...

A lot of people are texting. That makes sense since texting is the fastest opened, most read, and most responded to form of communication today. In this article, we are going to show you why this was important for Merlin Cochran (our case study below). What does this mean for calls? Deadcellzones.com maps mobile reception problem areas. Statistics on their website show that on average, a US cell phone user makes/receives 8 calls each day. In other words, 300 million US cell phone users are making 2.4 billion calls daily....
