The future of mobility can seem so blurry and confused without the right information. Elders and ministry leaders are often asking us at Eggizo if they should get a church app now or wait? Is it really a necessity for their ministry? Are they worth the initial investment? Will apps stay around or are they a short-lived fad? These are all great questions to be considered before you invest in getting a mobile app for your church or ministry. Below are some of the major statistics we point them to.
