Church at home:

  • Hopes for parents to own more of the spiritual discipleship due to COVID-19
  • Possibly will see more homeschooling as a result of COVID-19
  • Adjusting schedules for kids

Churches leaning in during COVID-19 and using TrainedUp:

  • Still focusing on New Member or Growth Track
  • Still focusing on Volunteer Training
  • Producing bible teaching videos for congregations rather than using social media


  • Outgoing messages and Ongoing conversations
  • Video updates via text messages
  • Great source of accountability for leaders and families
  • HuddleUp Chat – admins have full access to seeing conversations; they are private, yet visible for accountability
  • Rather than forcing through one platform, this allows communication through multiple platforms so everyone gets what they want (email, text, etc.)
