As smartphones and tablets have now slightly overtaken personal computers as the primary means for accessing digital information, local churches are also re-assessing how they communicate with their members.
While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, the Christian Reformed Church (Ministry in Canada) has partnered with Extreme Technology to develop The Bridge App to provide local churches with an affordable and effective mobile app for serving their members.
What sets this app apart from other smartphone apps geared toward churches is that The Bridge App aims to be Relational, Missional and Local in a distinctively CRC way and with the emphasis on the local congregation.
Some features of the app include:
Roughly two-thirds of CRCs in Canada are currently using The Bridge App, and during the past year the app has processed $3.6-million in donations for the local churches. But, for churches that are not utilizing the app, a booklet and a brochure have recently been produced to explain the many benefits of The Bridge App, and an information package is available by contacting [email protected].
And, even if your church is not utilizing the app, anyone using an Apple iOS or Android device can download the app and use many of the standard features.
The Bridge App is made available and supported for CRCs in Canada through Ministry in Canada, and is available to US congregations directly through the developer, The Bridge App Inc.
