Outreach & Assimilation
Close the back door.
Develop rich communication and engagement so you can maximize your ministry outreach opportunities and growth potential. The City is a community-based social tool designed specifically for ministries to build meaningful relationships, broadcast communication and advance the mission of the church.
Churches choose The City to help develop deep levels of engagement in a social network platform which mirrors the interactions in the physical church. Discovering new members is easier than ever with built-in administrative functions which allow leaders to efficiently connect people to different ministries. With the addition of The City mobile app and optional ACS People integration, churches can continue to grow their mission more than ever.
- Open doors for potential members by effectively notifying prospects of future events in your ministry
- Link first-time visitors with leaders who help connect people to growing areas of your ministry
- Easily monitor attendance levels and reach out to users who may be falling behind
Connect New Visitors and Create Spiritual Paths for Veteran Members
- Help newcomers and disconnected members get connected quickly into the life of your church. Each new participant is automatically paired with assimilation staff who assists them in getting connected to other groups that best benefit that person and the ministry as a whole.
- Increase your church’s presence in the community by adding posts to a public City page. Though it functions like a separate website, its content is created in The City and pushed to the Plaza so non-members can be informed about ministry events.
- Target communication for specific people who resemble similar skills. Easily invite members to connect with certain aspects of your ministry and incorporate them to into your mission.
Customized Analysis and Reporting Tools
- Instantly find how well your church is performing on levels of adoption, engagement, and participation via the Admin Dashboard. These metrics are in the form of graphs and percentages and show the most important data from last year and the current year.
- Quickly find attendance data for members who may have trouble attending services or small group meetings. Easily send them a private message and invite them to particular groups that better serve them in the church.
- Extend the ministry to a completely new level of membership possibilities with integrated Facebook and Twitter posting options.
