The mission that faces today’s church is clear. God’s Word is direct with the command to “Go and Tell.”(Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15) However the question still remains, “What is the best tool or method for reaching people more effectively? How can a church get more members engaged in reaching those in their community?”
It was with that question that the vision of SmartReach was born. Churches have used many tools over the years to help assist in more organized and effective outreach. However these tools have either been hard to use or not convenient to implement and they don’t use key technologies that would help to make outreach more efficient.
SmartReach is a powerful iPhone & iPad Application that focuses on harnessing two key technologies to help make church outreach more effective and productive. SmartReach has been designed to combine the power of Coordination with the power of Location to produce an effective and efficient tool to help the church reach their community.
SmartReach equips churches for effective and efficient outreach by using the power of coordination – a real time cloud based server that is able to update and communicate with multiple devices at a time. This keeps your outreach team updated with the latest changes to information.
SmartReach also harnesses the power of location using GPS aware technology that sorts prospects and member lists by your device’s current location. This single feature now helps the church outreach program become more efficient. Simply flag and assign visits to members of your outreach team and SmartReach will help them from there.
SmartReach has been designed for multiple users in a church to be connected to consistent outreach information for coordinated and targeted follow up. Whether a church uses this technology with staff only, or you implement it as a complete contact solution for anyone wishing to be involved in church outreach, this tool is designed for engaging more church team members to be involved in reaching out to their community.
The church is not about a building or a budget, but rather it is about reaching people. The vision behind SmartReach is the power and priority of relationships – people touching other people’s lives through the most important human interaction – a personal face-to-face encounter. With SmartReach, the church focuses on community both with it’s current members, and on reaching potential new members through multiple points of contact and interaction throughout your church’s ministry with the SmartReach system.
SmartReach cannot fix whether a church obeys the mission that our Savior has given, but we can equip the church to effectively and efficiently reach out with the gospel by providing a tool that gets more church members involved and keeps them connected.
