The 1-A-Chord Mobile Music app for choirs is a tool fashioned to meld the global needs of the ministry of music within the church with the powerful applications technology can provide. We have looked at the needs of the ministry from three unique perspectives;
Custom designed to meet the individual needs of a church, the app has the ability to provide: lyrics, individual vocal parts, calendar engagements, video, leadership contact rosters, attire, social media feeds, devotionals, PUSH notifications and more. All information can be fed in advance of rehearsals or events to allow for timely notices and preparation. Said information will automatically update to the smartphone of the user. Information can be updated monthly weekly or even daily. PUSH notifications can be sent at will for up-to-the-minute updates; changes in attire, song selection or the cancellation or a rehearsal or service.
Apps can be tailored not only to each church’s ministry but for each ministry’s choirs. Praise Team members may need much more music than any one choir. The Childrens Choir’s parents may not need the selections from the Male Chorus, the Young Adults may love the social media capability that may not yet be suitable for Youth. Each choir’s app can meet its choirs needs and all can be managed by a single administrator. The apps have been tested on live ministries to great results and are available for customization. While currently available for sale, the app is preparing to host its formal launch at the Gospel Heritage Praise and Worship Conference in Atlanta, GA in February 2013.
Apps are priced dependent on number of apps created and number of modules utilized on each app and start at an affordable $29 per month plus a small setup/customization fee. All are operable on iOS, Android and Windows Platforms.
