Smith and his wife Chelsea, who are the head Pastors of Churchome with locations in Seattle and Los Angeles, have launched an app that brings Church to the palm of your hand, including sermons, a virtual lobby, a “Daily Spark” inspiration, prayer and even community groups.
Judah Smith is known to have been the one who introduced Justin Bieber to Jesus Christ and now he is working on the rest of the world, bringing the church to your smartphone and tablet in a new way.
According to Pastor Smith, they decided to launch the app after he noticed a growing number of his members particularly millennials, saying they no longer go to a physical church building and so He decided to bring the church to them right on their phone whenever they want.
“We’re trying to take Church to the palm of your hand,” Smith said. “Wherever you go, Churchome is with you.“
All you need to do is download the Churchome Global App and you’re in, joining a flock that includes outspoken Christian celebrities like Justin Bieber, pro-golfer Bubba Watson, and Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson.
According to him being able to go to church on your phone, doesn’t signal the end of physical church buildings.
“Technology has changed the world and we believe that technology is not a bad thing. It’s like money. It’s what you do with it. It could be good or evil, and we believe that we have an opportunity. We’re trying to take Church to the palm of your hand, Wherever you go, Churchome is with you.“
According to his wife Chelsea;
“We also feel like providing a church that speaks the language of that demographic. Our kids aren’t quite that old yet, but our oldest is 14 and watching the way our kids interact.
Their entertainment is YouTube. Their friends communicate on a cell phone, in their hands, and realizing that that is the language that age group is speaking, and if we can create a church that speaks that language, we hope that we’ll be able to make a difference in that number.”
“There’s no way that we can reach all the people in our cities if we’re expecting them all to come to buildings and so this is an extension of buildings trying to make it bigger and more accessible.”
