I recently was talking with a soon-to-be church planter who asked a very simple question,
“What good is a Church Management Software before we are a church?”
Here are the top 5 Reasons:
#1 – Your Supporters
Keep track of donations in the giving module, send them regular updates with the email campaign system. By tracking and sharing your financial needs, and communicating prayer requests/goals your launch team can span states and nations.
You’re starting with a clean slate as a plant. The pastor/s and the launch team get to define the culture, values, and priorities of the church. By utilizing a web-based management software once you start meeting it becomes a part of your culture to track activity. As with any management tool, the more good information put in leads to better reports/analytics.
#3 – Practice Followup
These systems are designed to help you get people into community. By using them early your key leaders will buy into their ability to do this, and this can lead to a church known for its ability to foster community.
In the chaotic first few weeks of your church there is little time to figure out what reports and information would be helpful. Your system is ready to show you how things are going in seconds without the guess work and number crunching.
#5 – Peace of Mind
Sleep better knowing your rosters, giving, groups, and other mission critical information is being maintained, protected, and backed-up for you. We want you to focus your energy and prayer towards your community, not praying over your computer.
