MTN automates all of the local missions processes that were formerly done by pen, paper, phone, e-mail and Post-It Notes. There are tremendous inefficiencies today in how volunteer needs are communicated to church attenders/members and how they connect with those opportunities. A church cannot possibly survey the community, even just its charity partners, to find out their current needs and put those in front of members on a real-time basis. Those needs are constantly changing and the church cannot keep up with them or communicate them effectively from the pulpit or in the bulletin. Even if a church managed to communicate those needs, how would members register to volunteer?
With MTN, a church staff could expend very little effort (far less than it does today) yet be able to dramatically increase the church’s impact in the community by allowing members and small groups to see and sign up for a wide range of church, charity, family or missions needs through the church’s web site. A church can even let members and small groups “opt in” to receive emails from ministries inside or outside the church whenever they post new needs
