Does the Church Need a Mobile Presence?
I admit it – I love infographics, which is why I’m sharing with you one entitled “Mobile America” by St. Louis-based digital marketing and design agency Steadyrain.
The graphic includes interesting stats on how mobile-dominant the U.S. has become. According to the latest census in 2011, there’s roughly 311.5M people living in the United States, of which more than 232M are connected via mobile devices such as cell phones, smartphones and tablets. A full 94% of US adults age 18-44 own a mobile device, and it’s estimated that in 2012 more than half of all mobile users will own smartphones.
Mark 16:15 (NLT) states “And then he told them, ”Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.” If more than 232 million people in the United States alone are connected via mobile devices, doesn’t it make sense for your church or ministry group to have a mobile presence to preach the Good News?
The message of the Good News will never change; we may however, need to occasionally change our method of getting the message to the people. After all, doesn’t the church have the best message worth taking mobile?
Check out the stats below. Next week I’ll share with you 5 specific reasons your church needs a mobile presence.
