Transformation Church Greenwood is a multi-cultural place of worship focused on transforming lives. Their church fundraising idea was to implement mobile solutions to engage church individuals to get plugged in, join small groups and grow in faith.
Promotion of Keywords at Church
Church leadership created unique messaging keywords and promoted them during services for people to signup for classes, get involved in ministries, and receive program notifications and encouragements. Examples include:
Text CCLASS to 51555 and complete the form to register for classes.
Text SoFly Your Name to 51555 to get involved in the young adults group!
Text TCNews to 51555 to get real time church updates!
Don’t Let People Slip Through the Cracks
“We know that statistically, people are much more likely to stay in a church where they can build relationships. We wanted to be a place where people have tons of options for building relationships – small groups, service opportunities, classes. We’re also very design forward so we didn’t want to have tons of clipboard sign-ups in the lobby. MobileCause helped us design an elegant sign up process that happens seamlessly inside our Sunday morning announcements. Using a mobile number to sign up means that people can join a group immediately & a real person can follow up with them by phone to get them connected. In this way, the technology helps us build relationships faster. We need multiple touch points to ensure we’re serving our people in the best way possible. We want to make sure that people don’t fall through the cracks.”
