I’ve been intrigued with ChangePoint’s introduction of their app. Not only are they the first Alaska church to introduce their own app, but they clearly struck a nerve that is radically extending their ministry. Their app is probably one of the most cost-effective endeavors in their ministry.[img_assist|nid=157735|title=ChangePoint App Splash Screen|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=227|height=390]
Adam Legg, ChangePoint’s communications director, shared the three-month statistics with me last week.
After 3 months, they’ve seen:
– 8,572 uses of the app
– Over ¼ of a million minutes of usage in the first 3 months
– 1,783 people have downloaded the app
– No day without at least one new download
– Their “Digital Campus” grew again last month with no evidence the increased online and mobile listening is affecting weekend attendance. They are seeing a significantly larger number of people connecting with us and hearing the grace-based, Bible centered Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Adam affirmed “Our vision at ChangePoint is Life in Christ for Every Alaskan and the world beyond. It is incredibly encouraging to see that God is allowing us to use technology to help accomplish that vision!”
I say “right on”. As stated before; While I do not agree with every aspect of ChangePoint’s ministry, I love their sense of vision and using today’s technology to act on that vision.
As a businessman, I’ve noted there are three types of people in the world.
1. People who make things happen
2. People who watch things happen
3. People who wonder what happened
Clearly ChangePoint leaders are in the first instance.[img_assist|nid=157736|title=ChangePoint App Sermon Screen|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=227|height=390]
