Staying in touch with your members and keeping them engaged with your church during the week can be a challenge. You want to stay connected with them outside of Sunday service, but what’s the best way to do that?
Traditionally, churches have relied on email. But the problem with email is that it’s not very effective in terms of visibility and impact.
Studies show that only about 26% of all bulk emails are read. They often end up in the spam folder, or the promotions tab in Gmail, out of view from the intended recipient. Not very effective for your ministry!
Email inboxes are getting more and more crowded, creating inbox overload for people that already have too much to do.
How do you make sure your message is seen, and stands out from all the noise?
This is where Rooftop comes in. We use simple text messages to keep you connected to the members of your church. There is no spam folder to get lost in, and text messages have a 98% open rate! This means that 72% more people will read and engage with your message vs. email.
Plus, a text message from your church will feel more personal and intimate than an email, resulting in a stronger relationship between your church and its members.
Here's just a few of the ways Rooftop can be used to help your church and ministry be more effective.
If you ever have to cancel service due to inclimate weather, Rooftop can send out a text message to your entire congregation letting them know, so they don't show up to an empty house!
Send out prayer requests instantly to prayer groups. You can literally have people praying in a matter of seconds!
Notify a parent about their child in the kid's area or nursery.
Allow Small/Life Group leaders to send out messages to their group members to update them about the group.
Alert your church members of upcoming events, guest speakers or the next sermon series.
Distribute links to your weekly newsletter, sermon notes or audio archive.
Send scripture and bible verses that are relevant to last Sunday's sermon, or the upcoming series.
All unused credits for each month will roll over to next month, and they never expire.
Yes. We're confident that Rooftop will be a game-changer for your church. But if you decide it's not working out you can cancel at any time.
Although all unused credits roll over each month indefinitely, if you cancel and have unused credits you won't receive a refund for them.
Yes! We can provide you with an image customized with your church's logo that contains instructions to help your members sign up to receive messages from your church's Rooftop account. This image is great for showing in service, or posting on your church's website and social media accounts. Here's an example.
Absolutely! Rooftop was built from a need for churches to communicate easily with their members, but there's no reason why Rooftop can't be used outside of a church setting.
Rooftop is great for anyone that needs to communicate with an audience, such as public speakers, politicians, bands, schools and universities, business owners, restaurants, and more!
We understand that there still may be a small percentage of people that won't want to receive text messages. Sending emails from Rooftop is something we're considering, so if this interests you please get in touch.
Our plans are for Rooftop to be a communications hub, so posting to social media is definitely on the horizon! If this is something you're interested in, let us know!
These are a just a few churches that are Rooftop users.
