Easy To Use Application For A Church Community​

Descriptions

Appschef helped a Christian organization in Bandung, called City Light Community Church (CLCC), to develop a church mobile application. In addition, there is a refresh to their website with modern design. The goal of the app is to become a media to grow congregation through preaching and daily meditation. For example, the app not only provides information about church activities, but also becomes a two-way communication channel. The mobile application has features such as counseling and communities section.

The application offers information that will help visitors adapt quickly to the church and feel more at home. It is what our client wants – to be welcoming and help new visitors find their place. Users can read the newest feeds without scrolling their screens. The application enables users to have:

  • Online counseling: Parishes can communicate each other with pastors to talk about their problem.
  • Community service (mini social media), users can update their status or give information about parochial to another user.
  • Streaming preaching videos. – Daily devotional contains meditations aimed for people who are struggling to live faithfully in real-life situations.
  • Church / community lists, which can be added into electronic calendar. Users can see the list of communities and church locations so that they can see upcoming activities. For the website, Appschef developed on top of Laravel 4 framework. The application runs on top of a CentOS, Apache web server, and MySQL database. On the front-end, the application uses HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, and JQuery. For mobile application, Appschef use Objective C for iOS 7 and Android SDK for Android version 4 or higher.
