Reverend William E. Maki is the owner and President of wemakisolutions, LLC. The company was founded in 2014 in response to the need for Mobile Apps for faith based organizations. The hope in developing these Mobile Apps is that people will have the faith resources they need, with them, as often as possible, to aid in their faith development, and to grow the church.
What we have noticed is that fewer and fewer people are turning to traditional books and newspapers to read, but instead are turning to tablets, iPads, and Smartphones to gather their information for reading, for learning of the news of the day, and for keeping informed of social events. Plus, as a Lutheran, it was distressing for Reverend Maki that many people didn't know where their Bibles were in their homes and that the Small Catechism isn't in the homes of most Lutheran's. Even though Martin Luther developed it to be used for teaching the Christian faith in the home, by the head of the household. Add to that the often sad commentary that many active Christians don't have any idea of the depth and breadth of all that their National, Regional, and Local denominations/congregations are doing day in and day out, and how they might share in those opportunities.
However, everyone knows where their Smartphone or Tablet is to be found. It's with them constantly. It's in their purse, or pocket, or in their hand. Doesn't it make sense to have a Mobile App that will contain the essencials of faith, be filled with the lastest news, and list opportunities for service within their local and national church bodies, among other things, to assist them to grow in that faith? Doesn't it make sense to have all the congregations in a local or national church listed with contact information and mapping technology so they can contact you, or show up at your Congregation for worship or a fellowship event? Websites alone are not enough in this day of technology. It is cumbersome and time consuming to try and type an entire website address into your phone. Or to try and remember several different websites to type. It's much easier and efficient to just "tap the Mobile App" and get there right away.
Let us work together with you to make your faith-based Mobile App a reality. Let wemakisolutions, LLC help to put you on the phone, and in the pocket, or purse, of all of your parishioners, and anyone else who wants to download your Mobile App to learn more about you, and the faith we share.
Your's in Christ,
Rev. William E. Maki
