Grace Baptist Fellowship

History

Grace Baptist Fellowship is a church whose roots were based on being a church plant, moving from facility to facility for 11years, until recently when they acquired a permanent location. Their mission has always been to reach souls and build lives, so settling into a new sanctuary and pairing up with Realm was a perfect combination for them. They’re devoted to ministering to the unchurched as well as ministering and growing their own congregation. Outreach events and building unity within their community are highly held things at Grace Baptist Fellowship.

Challenge

Being unable to communicate and share announcements effectively outside of social media for so long left the church behind on the connecting curve. Members would often feel out of the loop for upcoming events, and staff members were not getting the extra help they needed to effectively minister within the community. They needed a way to connect the dots between their existing members, who needed an easier way to keep up with one another and those who were interested in joining the church.

Solution

Realm created an entirely new method of socializing for the church. They were able to migrate into using specific features, like Groups, that helped them immediately as they created a group for each ministry group, upcoming events, and announcements. Realm empowers them with a way to effectively communicate and encourage each other while connecting with their members in their now-permanent locaion.
