Communication Apps for Church Teams

We have entered an era where technology has made communication easy, and everything is almost accessible. Before these communication apps, we got together to conduct meetings. Now, all we need is either our cellphones, laptops, or tablet. Then we get everything done. Using apps requires less effort and cost. No need to prepare a venue, food, and other materials. It is less costly and much more flexible with each member’s time. What are the best communication apps for the church teams? Check out the list below!



Slack is a channel-based messaging platform. With Slack, people can work together more effectively, connect all their software tools and services, and find the information they need to do their best work — all within a secure, enterprise-grade environment.

Team members send messages and share files in channels. Create channels for teams, projects, office locations, or anything else relevant to your organization. You can make channels private for conversations that shouldn’t be open to all members, or you can use shared channels to collaborate with external organizations from your workspaces.




Basecamp is a real-time communication tool that helps teams stay on the same page; it’s less for traditional project management tasks (e.g., resource planning and long-term scheduling). Basecamp provides a way for teams to keep track of priorities and actionable items with to-do-lists, calendaring, due dates, and file-sharing.


Facebook Messenger

Facebook Messenger is a messaging app developed by Facebook, Inc. It is a dedicated website interface (Messenger.com). They separated the messaging functionality from the main Facebook app, allowing users to use the web interface or download one of the standalone apps.



There are more communication apps available, but the most used apps by church teams are the ones we have listed here. It’s cheaper than any other app and far simpler that anybody can easily use, even the church’s older members. Especially Facebook Messenger is simple, free and the most recommended by church communicators. So, we encourage you to try these communication apps for church teams to see which one best suits your need.
