One of our long lasting partners, Southeast Christian Church, began spinning out a vision months ago to hyper launch into local engagement and mobilizing their 30,000 person congregation into local engagement. The goal was to make this an ongoing part of the church culture. And so began their journey to Unleash the full force of the church... with the simple title of Unleashed.
To mobilize this many people required a few key ingredients. First, it required a large amount of serving opportunities. Southeast rallied together 50+ local organizations to post their trips to an aggregated list. Second, it required a dedicated mobile app to host this aggregated list of opportunities. Third, it took a huge initiative from the entire church to host a big launch.
In March, Southeast launched the entire Unleashed initiative with over 500 serving opportunities aggregated from 50+ organizations with their dedicated mobile app (iOS and Android) for people to download and a half day virtual event to promote and educate the church about opportunities and organizations.
ServiceReef was honored to be part of this project to build the aggregation tools and the mobile app for Southeast. It’s been a great journey seeing how so many have signed up and are engaging in serving locally through this Herculean effort by Southeast. This story is a great example of keeping momentum moving even during this pandemic and giving people a strong means of engagement.
