Group Messaging: Our Newest Feature: Chat
Have you even hard to make a decision by committee? Of course, you have; you’re a church leader. How about something as simple as picking a place for the group to go to lunch? Sean wants sushi, Lance wants BBQ and Joe want’s Mexican. But, Lance had taco’s for dinner last night and Joe’s not a fan of raw fish. Everyone has an opinion, but nobody wants to be too pushy so landing on an option that makes everyone happy becomes a challenge. After about 10 minutes of “I had that for dinner last night” or “didn’t we just have that for lunch last week?” you’ve finally had enough. If only there was a place where everyone’s appetite could be satisfied …. and then it hits you!
The mall food court. Why not? You’ve got your Chick Fil A, Asian, pizza, Chipotle, Subway, etc. Perfect. And some dessert too. I think I can smell Cinnabon from here. It’s a solution that can please everyone.
Well, just as the mall food court could be the one stop shop for your lunch needs, we have also created aware3 with that same idea in mind. Why not create a platform that serves the multiple growing needs of your church all in one place? With existing features like registration, online giving, sermon notes, and videos, we’ve added another facet to our growing library to make your church app the place for everything.
At the core at aware3, we want to grow churches through member engagement helping you to create disciples. The key ingredient of engagement is relationships. Relational connection is what keeps people coming back and desiring more from your church. But, building relationships over a couple of hours on a Sunday morning alone, is a long process. Relationships need to extend beyond just conversations in the atrium before and after service.
In talking with our partner churches we realized that they are using a variety of tools to try and support communication between different groups of people. This disjointed approach is better than nothing, but we thought, ‘we can make this a lot easier’. Maybe it’s time to add a feature to your church app where people are already cultivating community by registering, listening and giving? Well, we did, and we are here to introduce the newest feature to the aware3 collection: Chat.
Instead of email prayer chains and Facebook groups, Chat makes relationships simple. By putting instant messaging in your mobile app, we’ve added another restaurant to the mall food court of options you have to engage the members of your church.
If you are interested in finding out how to get more from Chat or any of our other features, connect with our team.
If you are looking for a way to leverage mobile technology to extend your reach and grow engagement, we would love to talk to you.
