Cell Phones on Your Side

Churches have battled cell phones for years. Stop the battle! Wave the white flag! Cell phones are here to stay and you must use them to engage and equip people. As Moses said to Pharaoh, “Let my people go!” Maybe this is over dramatic, but it makes a great point. Cell phones are on your side— when they’re used correctly.
Here are 3 ways to use those mobile devices sitting in your congregation’s pockets:

Read and share.

With mobile apps like the Faithlife Study Bible and Logos Bible you can receive Proclaim Signals to follow the sermon from a mobile device. It saves the references so people can easily study what was read in church.

Send the details—don’t just say them.

With Proclaim Signals you can send a calendar invite for people to add your event to their calendar without having to type all the information. You can send a contact card, website, or even a donation request. Proclaim makes it as simple as possible to allow more people to participate.

Pastors are in control.

Build a presentation and put private notes on the slides. Using the Proclaim Remote, control the presentation with access to private notes on your mobile device.
The mobile landscape has changed and will continue to change. How have you incorporated mobile devices? How do you train volunteers, greet new people, minister to the church, or build relationships using mobile devices? How are you leveraging this technology?
Proclaim is free for 30 days. No credit card needed, no strings attached, just download and start building beautiful church presentations!
