Grow your Church with Reports on Asoriba

In recent times we more often than not find churches preparing reports in the process of evaluating and reaccessing their churches for long term planning.Slowly going by is the use of sheets of papers in keeping records and as such it is only wise to start implementing appropriate tools that would give you an insight into the true state of your church as well as help give a forecast into what the future holds.

It’s been a long time coming and we are happy to say our “Reports” feature is finally up and running.

A SPECIAL GIFT; SEND WARM WISHES TO EVERY MEMBER IN YOUR CHURCH

Written By Vannessa Mpere

Days come and go but birthdays and anniversaries come once in a blue moon. Imagine how appreciated your church member would feel if they received warm wishes on their special days from the head pastor himself, it would make them feel so appreciated and important.

happy anniversary

All year round members celebrate their birthdays and different anniversaries and most of them don’t get wished. Ever thought of how simple it will be to be able to wish all these members on their individual birthdays. Say a church population of about 4,000 members and you want to wish all of them on their special days. We are excited to introduce our Reminders section on the Asoriba app which allows you to create birthdays and anniversaries templates to wish all your members on their special days.

birthday

Sometime back, church leaders had to spend time going through members details to wish them on their birthdays which was nearly impossible for very large churches. The usual we know is on a Sunday service where members who celebrated their in that particular month are invited and wished. But the good news is now every member can be wished on their individual birthdays.

How is that possible? Very simple! Once you have the details of every member on Asoriba, all you need to do is to create a birthday and an anniversary template in the reminders category on  Asoriba  and your warm wishes will be automatically sent on their respective birthdays.

Church Attendance Monitoring Just Got A Lot More Easier

Written by Isaac Amoh-Agyebeng

Gone are those elementary school days when we used to carry plenty alcoholic and non-alcoholic bottle tops and sometimes stones, all packed in 50kg imported Uncle Sam’s rice bags to school to be used as counters. It was so tiring carrying them to school and even got more stressful when you were counting and you forgot how many you had already counted and had to count all over again… urrrghh…! It was such a relief when one got to High school and had the chance to use digital calculators.

Checking attendance during church services has been a challenge over the years as ushers and deacons have had to use the elementary approach of having to walk through large congregations to do head-counting which is usually fraught with many inaccuracies.

Asoriba says this inconvenience can be avoided and so has introduced a breakthrough technology for church attendance monitoring. Whoop! Whoop!
The Asoriba Check-in function can be accessed by church administrators on the Asoriba web application (Attendance > Attendance Settings) and on the Asoriba mobile app by the church members (My Church > Check in > Scan QR Code).

The Asoriba Check-in service has been made so flexible that it comes in five different modes; USSD, QR Code, NFC, biometric and manual check in.

USSD Check-in: A simple two or three digit code is generated for every service/service session and members type in the code on their mobile phone via  USSD code *714*25# (in Ghana) and *134*433# (in South Africa), with default Church ID being 500. 

QR CODE Check-in: The Asoriba web application is used to generate a unique QR code for each service/service session and subsequently printed and pasted at vantage points for church members to scan using the Asoriba mobile app on their phones.

NFC Check-in: A simple technology device that comes with an accompanying tag/sticker. The NFC device is put at vantage points in the church premises and church members show their NFC tags/stickers (probably placed at the back of his/her personal mobile phone or Bible) to the device.

BIOMETRIC Check-in: The biometric details of church members are taken and stored on the web application and the thumbprints of church members are taken every time they are attending a service which is instantly matched with the database and added to attendees of that particular service.

MANUAL Check-in: An admin logs into the church’s Asoriba web application account and manually records attendance against the names of church members by either searching for their names (already existing members) or adding their names to the database and recording that they have attended the service (new or visiting members).

The Asoriba web application allows for analysis based on demographics, and specific service’s patronage trends as well as forecast on church growth to help our Church Leaders take strategic decisions.


Technology is supposed to make life more productive and easier. Asoriba Check-in simply makes church attendance monitoring a worthwhile exercise and not the usual headache it seems to have become for a lot of churches.

Asoriba Mobile App Goes Social Soon

Written By Isaac Amoh-Agyebeng

Among the many reasons people join churches is the fact that it encourages fellowshipping but with a growing church, this becomes increasingly difficult to achieve. Most often than not, you would find that two congregants sitting next to each other in the church auditorium might not even know each other’s names. This is an error and the Asoriba mobile app has a solution to correct it.

The Asoriba mobile app gives church members the opportunity to follow other members in the church. For instance, a member would get to know that another member (he/she is following) just had a baby or would be missing the next church service once a post to that effect is shared by the one being followed. You also get to comment or “like” his or her posts and keep some rapport going on. The fact that people who do not even belong to your church can check in to know your ongoing and upcoming events is even a good opportunity to reach a wider audience.The Church is supposed to be a community and the Asoriba mobile app makes it more connected.

Following Churches

Sundays shouldn’t be the only days that the church has contact with members; Asoriba makes it possible for people to follow their churches and other churches that they can relate to on a daily basis. Members can access devotions, announcements and media posts shared by their churches to keep them updated and engaged. The days of having to call a friend to find out whether a church meeting is going to take place are over! Pastors or church leaders can tell how many church members received the messages they posted and they are also able to see comments and “Amens” from members. It is a whole new level of active engagement between the church and its members – fellowshipping just got better!

Following Ministries

Apart from churches, members can also follow ministries on Asoriba. It is a fact that the Church represents the body of Christ and this body has many parts that perform special functions to keep it in good shape. Just like churches, ministries also have a following who need to be regularly updated with ongoing activities and upcoming ones. And again the Asoriba Mobile App makes it possible.Sign Up your church now to be part of this wonderful experience:
