Or perhaps we should consider referring to this as “thinking outside the pew.” Proving that science and religion CAN beneficially coexist, a pastor in Augusta, GA has gone mobile with the collection plate.
Dr. Marty Baker, of Stevens Creek Church has created an app for the iTunes store. Pastor Baker was quoted in MarketWatch;
“In addition to traditional ways of receiving charitable donations, churches are now using Mobile Apps to make giving to their ministry accessible wherever they have their phone. In today’s economy, fewer and fewer people are carrying cash or checkbooks. Today, churches are forced to consider alternative ways of collecting money.”
The lesson here is to start thinking about what you may not have thought about when it comes to the application of apps in your own business or fundraising ventures.
