TOP 7 APPS FOR MINISTRY

by on Oct.28, 2015, under Church Life

Apps

I love my job! I have been the Creative Minister at St Paul’s for 8 year’s now, leading an awesome team of volunteers.

Eight year’s doesn’t sound like a long time, but research suggests it is. Over that time I have seen programs and apps come and go. They all promise to save you time and money, but few deliver.

In my opinion, here are my Top 7 apps for ministry:

  1. Bible Study (Olive Tree) – Bible reading/study app
  2. Evernote – Organise notes that sync across all devices
  3. Feedly – Blog reader
  4. Good Reader – View pdf’s
  5. Planning Center (PCO) – Plan services, schedule volunteers and more
  6. ProPresenter – Projection/presentation software
  7. Spotify – Free radio

Why 7? Well, 7 seems like the perfect number. What would you add/replace?

Congratulations to all the winners. Your hard work and God given gifts have been recognised by your peers. May God continue to equip and use you for His glory!

Finally, a shout out to our local brothers and sisters from Hillsong Church! Your music is inspiring a growing number of churches and worshipers. I look forward to seeing the Hillsong movie when it is released later this year.

From the Hills to every corner of the planet, let’s lift up the name of Jesus, for there is ‘no other name’ by which we can be saved.
