If you are reading this now you should probably be thinking, this is the point where I start keeping the Sabbath day Holy, Online; not having to bother about what to wear to Church on Sunday. Hey! It hasn’t got that far. This Church app “Asoriba” helps to connect Christians with their various churches online.
Of all things why will someone build a Church app? Nana Opoku Agyeman-Prempeh a 28-year-old Ghanaian, is the founder of this web-based church management app. Growing up in the Church, and seeing how difficult it was for her Dad to manage administrative duties, she decided to come up with this amazing situation.
“I grew up in the church and during these years I could not help but notice the administrative difficulties my father faced while managing the church. It is not an easy task to communicate with church leadership and members, while simultaneously putting in place a solid administrative and financial system,” she says.
The Church Management software captures detailed church member information, leader and Church operations. This creates a conducive, and effective environment for the Church congregation and their administration. However, with the Asoriba app, Church members can receive devotionals, sermons, event notices and other relevant information. They can also send prayer requests to their pastor at anytime.
Thought that was all, Hold on! Members can also give tithes, offerings and pledges to the Church, at their own convenience. As well as the Church can send out contribution notices to their members.
It doesn’t come free though. But the Churches pay as little as $9 per month for the service. Nana’s dad has been able to sign 395 churches in Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria and the US and registered 30,000 church members to his platform. Churches pay from as little $9 per month for the service.
With the success of this Church app, Nana Okpu has landed herself on Forbes’ 2016 list of Africa’s most promising entrepreneurs under 30.
