Many of you have downloaded the Northridge Church app. In fact, 2,280 of you have the app! Since the beginning of 2014, 449 new people have downloaded it! That's amazing since we almost never talk about it.
The app has been launched (or opened) 16,321 times since it began, 4,471 times since the beginning of the year, and 207 in the month of June (and that is in the first seven days!)
If you don't have the Northridge Church app yet, here are some of the benefits of having it:
- Watch/Listen to Sermons On the Go: As soon as our services end, our volunteers get to work to make sure a video and audio version of the sermon are rendered and encoded to play on mobile devices. Although we aim to have this complete within 24 hours, most weeks this is ready to go Sunday afternoon! I love that people can take the teaching of Northridge Church wherever they go, but I also love that this is only made possible by Northridge volunteers. If you’re interested in helping make sure these materials are ready ASAP – contact us and we’ll get you plugged in.
- All-Digital Notes: Just prior to our first service, a PDF of the sermon notes will be available in the app. This may look different for you, depending on your device, but most everyone can copy the notes into an text editor (Evernote and Adobe Reader are options for this) and follow along during the service. I love that our “digital natives” can add this to their Sunday morning routine.
- Increased Connection with Northridge: All of our ministries are represented in the app. We are looking to add content in the future, but we’re excited that we can help folks find our Facebook page, Twitter feed, and even our own Instagram feed through the app! Instagram users can add their unique view of Northridge Church to the feed by adding the hashtags #northridgerochester and either #irondequoitcampus or #greececampus
That’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our app, and I’m interested to hear how you use it each week. Click HERE to check out the Northridge Church app for your iPhone, Android, and Windows devices today!
