QR Church

One of the things I love about Westwinds is our early adopter mentality and our willingness to try new things. This proves true in the areas of technology, media, programming, and other methodologies.

One of our latest adoptions is the use of QR Code. A QR Code is a matrix barcode. These codes are readable by scanners, mobile phones with cameras, and smart phones. If you don’t have the QR Reader app for your iPhone, go download it now

QR is showing up everywhere. Last year I used a QR coded ticket to board a plane as they scanned my iPhone. QR is shown on commercials between shows, all new products at Best Buy, magazines, posters, you name it.

A few months ago, my wife and I scanned a QR Code during a commercial break and were directed to a site promoting the new show, “Lonestar.” My wife said, you should take advantage of QR at Westwinds for the bulletin and other things.


Westwinds is starting to use QR in our bulletin (The Draft), our weekend pre-service slides, posters, fliers, newsletters, magazines, albums, teaching atlases, on the doors of our church, on our business cards, and many other areas are being explored.

You can generate QR code very easy with sites like delivr

I encourage all churches to use QR and challenge them to come up with new ways to communicate and get information out through the use of QR.
