Simple and Effective Tools for Small Groups
What is StudyChurch?
StudyChurch is a group engagement platform for small groups who want to study the Bible together. Think of it like a Facebook group where your members can interact with each other. But StudyChurch is so much more than that.
It is a whole system built around your lesson material. As a group leader, you can create custom material that your group can engage with online. As they answer lesson questions, they will be able to interact with each other's answers.
