How does your church manage all of the information you receive from and about your congregants? Church management systems (ChMS) are designed to help administrators and teams with this. There are so many helpful solutions on the market today, each with their distinct approaches to keeping and managing data.
I remember receiving a Connection Card from a first-time guest. I was not present at the time it was filled out, and I never met the person.
She had indicated on the card that she had been recently divorced. This wasn't a selection on the card; she wrote it in the margin on the card. She also said she was looking for a church. I was moved as I read this card. I didn't know who she was, but I felt honored that she had entrusted this personal info she shared, and I stopped to imagine what her situation might be like.
You and your congregation rely on your weekly bulletin to stay up to date. Or do they? Are you sure it still should be considered your primary media channel? In today's ever-changing digital era, your church can't afford to invest in communication resources that may not be working as well as they once did.
