The Top Four Reasons You Should Be Running Your Website on Rock Published Apr 17, 2020 Now more than ever, a churchʼs digital strategy is an essential part of ministry. One sometimes overlooked feature of Rock that should be widely considered by every Rock church is the ability to power your external website. Why is running your site on Rock a critical part of your digital strategy? Here are just four of the top reasons. Deliver Personalization. Your database knows the individuals in your community, so why communicate as if you don't? Display content and messaging that is relevant to each individual for a tailored online ministry experience. Online Prayer Requests. Provide a connection point for your community with the online prayer request feature in Rock. This simple and underused feature allows people to submit requests on your website, and for those requests to be distributed to your staff and volunteers. Integrated Online Giving. Contributing tithes and offerings shouldn't be dependent on in-person services. Digital payment processing is a familiar daily tool for most people, and one that your church should be utilizing for the convenience of your members and the security of your budget. Timely Messaging and Podcasting. Keeping members informed during this time is critical. Use Rockʼs easy-to-administrate content channels to post updates, publish weekend messages and more to your website. Bonus This is just the tip of the iceberg, but having the four features listed above in your current digital toolbox would make todayʼs circumstances less complicated for many ministries. Once social distancing measures are behind us, you will find powerful public-facing ministry tools like volunteer connections, small group finders and group leader toolboxes, as well as the almost-endless flexibility of Rockʼs workflows and forms to be invaluable to the work you do as well. Take the time now to consider how a move to a public Rock website could take your digital strategy to the next level and ask the Rock community about the benefits they are experiencing by running their websites on Rock.
