Top 5 Tools For Remote Church Teams


Project Management

Team management tools are essential for remote church teams. They allow you to coordinate your team, keep track of projects and tasks, and make sure everyone is on the same page. Here are five tools to help you manage your remote church team:

Asana. Asana is an online project management tool that allows teams to collaborate and organize work in a variety of ways. The tool is free for up to 15 users, with paid plans starting at $8 per month for up to 50 users. The app is easy to use and offers a lot of flexibility in terms of how you can organize your project workflow.


Video Creation

Ripl is a social video and content creation tool that helps you create, curate and share videos from multiple sources on one screen.

With Ripl, you can shoot new videos, import existing videos from your computer or phone, record voiceovers and add music. You can even use the app's built-in camera to record live events in real time.

The app's editing features include a variety of filters, stickers, text overlays and more.

Ripl has been used by churches across the world to create team member interviews and prayer requests.


Team Chat

One of the biggest challenges for remote church teams is staying connected.

Slack is a messaging app that connects people to the information they need. By bringing people together to work as one unified team, Slack transforms the way organizations communicate.

With Slack, you can use your mobile device to stay in touch with each other, no matter where you are. Slack's ease of use, ability to integrate with other apps and its ability to help you get work done make it a great tool for remote teams.

One of the best features of Slack is its app directory. This is where you can find all the apps that integrate with Slack and how they work together. Slack integrates hundreds of apps into the platform like Google Calendar and Asana.

Slack is a no brainer in my mind. 


Remote Meetings

Okay we all know what this is. COVID showed the world what zoom was, but just because COVID is over doesn’t mean that we have to give up on zoom as well. 

Zoom is a video conferencing tool that's very easy to use. It works on PC, Mac, Android and iOS devices, so everyone can join in from anywhere. (It's also free for up to 75 participants.)

We use Zoom for our weekly team meetings because it lets us see each other's faces as we talk. We can also share screens and take notes during the meeting that are saved in the chat history afterward. I like this feature because it makes sure everyone has access to the same information at once.


Graphic Creation

Creating graphics is a big part of the job for many church leaders, but it doesn't have to be a complicated process. Using canva, you can create graphics that are beautiful and professional-looking, while saving time and money.

Canva is one of the most popular free image editing software available right now. You can use it to create images for social media posts, flyers, presentations, websites and more. You can also request feedback from other members of your team and order prints if needed.

Remote teams can work together on designs and campaigns, making it one of the most used tools for remote teams.
