empowering congregations to invite friends to church on social media

7 Church Planters Who Benefit From Reach


Reach by Causely partners with hundreds of church planters to help them connect more people to Christ and build stronger faith communities. To give you an idea of what our churches experience with Reach, we gathered quotes from 7 of our partners. Here's what they had to say.

1. Tim Hill — Bear Creek Church 

One of the biggest challenges of the local Church is reaching enough people. Since 90% of people claim they attend a church just because someone invited them, we know personal invitations are the best way to connect with more people. With Reach, people can invite their friends to church and support kingdom building causes by checking in on Facebook. Tim Hill at Bear Creek Church told us why his community enjoys checking in.

2. Jimmy McDonald — New Freedom Church 

With Reach, churches can encourage and equip members to talk about their faith online. Every time members check in on Facebook, they're sharing their passion for their church community, which is the best way to spread the word about your church. Jimmy McDonald of New Freedom Church experienced this in his community.

3. Tom Hogsed — The Summit Church 

Mixing outreach with missions is a great way to keep your church community involved and engaged. Tom Hogsed of The Summit Church already had a community devoted to service. Reach was an easy extension of their mission to serve.
