The iSheep app

iSheep, the app for savvy congregants, has multiple features designed to objectively assess your church and its leadership:

Sermon-Shazam uses an enormous database of printed and spoken sermons to alert you when Pastor is borrowing others’ material.

Solid-Food Calculator counts the number of scripture passages in sermons and Sunday school lessons, then calculates a teaching index that ranges from “Milk-toast” to “Juicy T-bone”.

Just the Facts uses your church’s IRS 990, published budgets, and income tax filings to follow the money. Is your tithe being used wisely? Is Pastor’s new SUV coming out of the general fund?

Love Meter measures congregation-wide eye contact, conversation length, and physical touch to calculate a fellowship score, ranging from “cold fish” to “warm embrace”.

Missions and Ministries calculates the percentage of resources designated for spreading the gospel or caring for the poor. See if your church scores in the “Ebenezer Scrooge”, “Spare Change”, or “Good Samaritan” categories.
