We are dedicated to helping churches with outreach by providing new communications technologies at affordable prices. Our trademarks are strategic advice, easy to understand set up and training, and excellent customer service.
Mobile apps for Churches:
Techshop is pleased to offer discounted pricing on the development of mobile apps for United Methodist churches through www.MyUMCapp.com. Mobile apps will better connect you with your worshipping community and help reach out to new persons not yet in your church. Mobile apps for smartphones mark the future in church communications. Apps are an investment in sharing the United Methodist Church with the world, strategically reaching out to more diverse and younger populations. Mobile apps merge into one cohesive package communications efforts such as news, blogs, events calendars, multi-media, social media, live streaming and online training, messaging, advertising, response forms, and more.
Our custom built and personalized Media Libraries act as a hub of your organization's internet activity. The media library is an archiving platform that allows allows you to collect and share videos related to your organization from your website as well as from Facebook and in a mobile app. Most importantly, our HD Media Libraries are a safe environment. There are no advertisements, no conflicting messages, and you can rest assured that visitors will never have to leave your website. This service includes customizing your Media Library with the look and graphics of your website. You will have a full functioning administration panel with control over channels, videos, users and more. Unlike free Internet media libraries, there will be no inappropriate advertisements. You will have ultimate control to accept/reject all video content. In addition, you can save and display extensive videos – not the 10-minute limit like many online sites.
Custom Facebook fanpages:
Five years ago, a church without a website was behind the times. Today, if you aren’t taking full advantage of Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, Youtube etc.) you are missing out on the most significant development in getting the word out about your organization since the creation of the internet. If you’re not on the cutting edge, you’re missing out on sharing your church with your community! We can build a custom Facebook fanpage for you that will bring in your graphics, live video streaming, blog, calendar, images and videos, custom contact forms, and more.
