Hit Em Up Mass Texts Increase Congregation Participation

We know in the modern era, getting the attention of your congregants is hard. Your Good Word is mixed in with information overload from social media and distractions both in church and in peoples' busy lives.

That's where Hit Em Up's effective Church Communication Tools come in. Hit Em Up places your Church's message on the same level of attention that all these apps that pull your congregants away from church are using by giving you and your church a presence directly on your congregants phones in the most personal and engaging way possible: a personal text message.

Mobile instant messages are what we call quasi-synchronous meaning that they are received and responded to in near real time (often within 1 minute). That makes your message sent through Hit Em Up more engaging and relevant than any other medium.

That means you can have a presence in your church members' spirtual and daily life experiences even when they’re not in church in that moment at nearly the same level of participation as when they are there.
