While we often think of our church websites as the gateways to our “real churches”, reality has turned upside down for churches around the world as personal ministry is restricted from being done face-to-face. Suddenly, digital ministry serves as the primary tool for hundreds of thousands of churches around the globe and most are realizing that, quite frankly, they weren’t ready for it. The good news however, is that this doesn’t spell the end for ministry. On the contrary, many churches are starting to see how heavily they relied on Sunday mornings to be their only time to interact with their people. Now churches are looking outside of traditional methods to not only survive this time of separation, but thrive and build new bridges of connection. This article will highlight just some of the things you should be doing to engage your people and continue adding to the Kingdom through remote and digital means.

Tithing is one of the most critical components of a healthy church. God calls His body to be diligent in the spreading of His kingdom through the contribution of their finances.

Tithing can be a tricky subject when it comes to churches. You don’t want your members to feel pressured to give but rather inspired to give.

When looking for the best online giving platforms for churches, you’ll see that there are both secular and Christian-based companies out there to choose from. So, what are the major differences if they both make it possible to give online? As a church, is it important to choose one over the other?
Embracing technology is essential for today’s modern church. Of course, there are a few challenges that come with it. While tech solutions can make our lives easier, sometimes they just make our heads spin.

As a social media manager, you’re more than likely getting ready to schedule out this week’s social media posts for your church, and are already picturing the comments you’re going to get from a select few people. You can almost guarantee Mr. Smith will have something negative to say and Mrs. Jones won’t say a single thing online but will tell you all of her opinions next Sunday. So, what are you going to do about it? The bigger question is, how does knowing what the types of people who interact with you on social media affect your content and interactions? Does it change anything at all? We think it should.

As the church administrator, you are the beholder of all the answers. People come to you asking where to give, how to sign-up, how to watch, when events are happening, etc. Answering questions like these is important because it helps your church members know what to do and how to do it. Often, however, the answer to these questions ends up being a list of different links, GoogleDocs, and in-person forms. Wouldn’t it be a beautiful day if you could send one link to everyone who asks you a question? Praise be! That day has come by using church software integrations.
