BuildFire - Best in Class

"They are a first class organization with a staff of experts in each area. They get things accomplished the first time correctly. I have yet to experience rework as a result of their failure to understand. I believe this is a direct result of our project manager.

FAQ: Building a Church App

  • Creating a church app is easy. With BuildFire's no-code church app builder, you don't need any coding experience, design knowledge, or technical skills to build an app on your own. Just choose from one of our professionally-designed templates explicitly made for churches and religious organizations. Then you can customize all of the features with our drag-and-drop app builder.

  • The exact cost to build a church app depends on the features you want and your development method. Traditional development is expensive and time-consuming. But with BuildFire, you can create a church app for a fraction of the cost. Just pay a fixed, affordable monthly fee. There's no setup fee or hidden charges to worry about.

  • Lots of successful church apps have similar features. We tend to see church apps with a detailed events calendar. This makes it easy for everyone in the congregation to see what's happening. You can even manage big events in advance with registration, sign-ups, and more. It's common for church apps to have an online giving feature, bulletins, and links to podcasts or live streaming channels. Push notifications give you a direct way to communicate with your congregation.

  • You can view all of the app data of your church app from BuildFire's admin dashboard. It's easy to see how many people are using the app and how frequently app users are coming back. These engagement stats are a pretty good indication of how your congregation feels about the app. If you want to take this one step further, you can just ask them! We have features that support polling and surveys. So you can always get direct feedback from all of your app users and get suggestions for new features or improvements to your church app.
