We deeply care about helping you do church better, so we won’t let you down on features. Yes, our technology is known as Church Management Software (ChMS), but we like to call it Church Relationship Software. We want to eliminate random, disconnected data silos and empower you to have an easy-access approach to ministry. Our goal is to help you understand your church community at a deeper, more personal level. The result is a more proactive approach to ministry engagement and fewer people slipping though the cracks.
New Guest Follow-Up
Quickly following up with your visitors is a great way to make sure they feel welcome and want to come back to your church. Our Process Queues allow you to easily track where each guest is in your new guest follow-up process, giving you the peace of mind that nobody slipped through the cracks.

Our contribution and payment solution is comprehensive and seamlessly integrates with your website. Now it’s simple for people to support your ministry through a one-time or recurring gift. You can also make online payments for retreats, events, concerts, etc., using customizable forms. *U.S. only. Additional fees apply.
Unlimited Use Check-In

One challenge in leading all your volunteers is organizing, communicating, and filling all those service opportunities in a simple way that aligns with their unique gifts and abilities. With our Positions feature, you can easily match them to the people best suited to fill them, and our Volunteer Scheduling tools can help you organize and communicate so your volunteers always know where they’re serving.

Tracking the faces in your church means knowing who actually shows up. You can easily know who has attended any event, including small groups, Sunday worship, and baptisms. But really, knowing who isn’t involved can often be more important than knowing who is, and that’s a little bit harder. We will help you proactively find and follow up with those people so they know you truly care about them.
|Outreach & Follow-Up *|
|You’re constantly working hard to reach out to your community through events, emails, invitations, and community service. Now you need to make sure those who show up or respond aren’t forgotten about. You will be able to ensure everyone is involved at some level and growing in their commitment and participation. We will provide the tools to help you achieve these goals. The nice part is our software is super flexible, so it can be tailored to the unique ways you follow up with people.
* The Essential version is limited to a single Outreach & Follow-Up process.
|One of the most challenging obstacles you face as a leader is understanding the real-time engagement of people in your church. Without knowing this, it’s really easy to accidentally miss discipleship opportunities and potential crisis situations that need urgent attention. You can quickly view all aspects of a person’s connections to groups, serving opportunities, events, and more. With the Deluxe version, you can see their past group and volunteer involvement for a holistic perspective.|
|Department & Group Management|
|The larger your church gets, you will begin using more and more layers of leaders to lead multiple departments, and then there will be multiple teams within those departments. Every single version of our software supports this approach because we understand how critical it is for your continued growth.|
|One of the hardest parts of mobilizing and energizing your volunteers is identifying, communicating, and filling service opportunities which align with their unique gifts and abilities. People who serve in their strengths are more fulfilled and more likely to inspire others to serve alongside them. Now you can identify and inform the right people based on their gifts, passions, skills, and leadership styles. Our tools help you organize the roles people need to fill and all the little details they’ll need to know for their service opportunity.|
|Communicating with people is much easier when you can find the exact people you’re looking for. You can create and share dynamic searches which will allow you to serve and care for people in a more personal way.|
|Software isn’t very useful at all if what you’re looking at doesn’t make any sense to you. We have a comprehensive list of helpful reports, but we also give you the ability to create reports that matter to YOU! You can share them with the right people on an ongoing basis which allows you to distribute knowledge and empower others without the usual bottlenecks.|
|When people can easily track what they have pledged to a particular cause, the percentage of actual giving increases significantly. Our pledge tools support your need to empower Capital Campaigns and other stewardship initiatives where future revenue streams are necessary to know. We make it easy to create, track, and manage financial commitments.|
|Giving is a huge indicator of church health and engagement. You can manage contributions and look at giving patterns in a lot of ways. Contributions can be entered manually, with check scanners, or by Remote Deposit Capture (RDC). People can log in and view their own personal giving and pledge history without calling the church office. For church leadership, we provide a growing list of financial reports that help you look at donor trends and statistics so you can find lapses in giving which often indicates a crisis or people slipping through the cracks.|
|Church technology is most effective when you can move it out of the church office and into the hands of as many people as possible. We also understand how important it is to allow certain people different permissions and access levels. Simple, but powerful, role-based access allows you to customize permissions and responsibilities so you can distribute the work load among staff, leadership, and volunteers. You can be confident that even people with little or no technical expertise can participate in ministry without getting confused over complex and frustrating technology.|
|Family & Individual Profiles|
|Cultivating relationships in your church requires a single source of accurate information about everyone in your community that everyone has access to. We absolutely get that. So, every person has a unique profile that contains all the information to truly know them. You will be able to see a variety of things, including hobbies, spiritual gifts, interests, spiritual maturity, volunteer availability, social media links, and more. Best of all, your members can access and manage their own profiles. When someone moves and their address changes, they can update it themselves! This helps you keep records current and relevant without needing to manage every little detail.|
|Organizing and communicating events efficiently can be a major challenge, and unfortunately, sometimes a major headache, too! How are you supposed to know who is even planning to show up at things these days? Well now it will be easy for you to announce the details of an event and get a guest list. People view event details and RSVP right from their own computer, tablet, or smart phone. Event leaders can request rooms and resources, invite people by email, and even track RSVPs in real-time! Then they can access reports to make it much easier to stay on top of all the activity, both on and off-campus.|
|Managing requests for rooms and resources can be a full-time job all by itself! Oftentimes it’s done on a totally different system which is completely disconnected and confusing for the facility manager. Your staff and group leaders can request any available resource when adding an event. Then, coordinators can quickly make other vital decisions without having to call 20 people at the church to get an answer. Meanwhile, the software eliminates those all too embarrassing double bookings.|
|iPhone & Mobile Access|
|More and more people are using cell phones to get actual work done, so it’s extremely important to access information securely from a variety of mobile devices. We provide a unique interface for tablets and smart phones so your leaders can quickly find people’s phone numbers, email addresses, and home addresses. You can instantly initiate a call, send an email, or get a map with directions to your destination.|
|You can check kiddos into Sunday School, adults into small groups, or volunteers into their respective areas of service. It also allows you to track real-time attendance in any setting and promotes security because you will have security codes provided by us. You can find people and families easily, quickly check them in, and print out name badges and pick up tags. Is someone getting fussy? You can also use the Check-In tool for Text Message Paging. Our Deluxe version gives you Self Check-In and digital Check-Out. You can also check people into multiple services at one time, suggest classes based on their age, and make sure you have enough teachers in each classroom. We take care of all those little details so no one drops the ball. You can use Check-In in as many locations and for all the ministries you want.|
|Once you find the right people to serve, it only makes sense that you would also want to schedule everything. Our Volunteer Scheduling works alongside Positions and Groups to make it easy to find, place and organize people to serve. You can create a variety of different schedules for your worship teams, children’s ministry leaders – really, any team in your church. We will send automatic reminders to your volunteers so they show up on time. Your leaders can easily communicate with other teams and see who is serving to help avoid double bookings and volunteer burnout.|
|With the Deluxe version, you can set attendance limits on events to prevent more people being checked in than the capacity of the room allows. It’s great for child check-in because we make sure the adult to child ratio is always respected. This also works well for conferences and events with limited seating.|
|For your small groups to be healthy, your leaders need to train, inform and guide their small group leaders on a proactive basis. Our Deluxe version extends the group and department structure by offering relational communication and a way to care for everyone. The Director-Coach-Leader relationship hierarchy is all about leaders talking to other leaders. It’s designed to encourage and cultivate a healthy atmosphere where leaders talk with their teams while providing accountability and support.|
|Multi-site is no longer just an interesting trend. It’s here to stay. And that’s a good thing because it is a new way of life for churches of all shapes and sizes. These ministries require unique systems, processes, and technology to be most effective. You can give your leaders the ability to manage and measure ministry strategy at a campus-wide and ministry-wide level, because at the end of the day, it’s all connected. People can communicate within a single campus, while having access to ministry opportunities across multiple campuses.|
|Private Online Groups|
|We truly believe that leadership-driven community is not only important to church engagement, but lives are changed because of it. Our approach is not an attempt to replace Facebook (come on, we all have fun on Facebook, we would never get rid of that!), but we do provide a safe place to drive activity and foster more personal conversations. You can create private online communities for groups and ministries. They can have their own Calendar, Discussion Board, Volunteer Opportunities, Needs, and Files. Leaders can quickly communicate with their groups, and people can easily interact with one another. All of this is provided in their online community. We won’t make anyone remember multiple usernames and passwords.|
|Everyone has access to their own unique calendar. Your leaders can easily create and manage events, invitations, RSVPs, and registrations. People can subscribe to a public calendar so all of their events can be synced to their calendar. Nobody can complain about missing events anymore!|
|Each person can easily view their own personal calendar. This calendar provides a simple view of all the events that matters most to them, whether they are group events, church-wide events, or action items they signed up for. This gives everyone a personalized place where they can easily view their upcoming activities.|
|No matter the size of your church, it is often terribly difficult to remember which face belongs with which name. We’ll help you out! You can look at profile pictures one by one, or create an online directory with individuals or families. Anyone who is logged into your online community can easily upload a personal and family picture.|
|Sharing multiple files can be time consuming and inefficient. Your leaders and admins will use our tool because we make it possible to quickly upload and store files online for easy access by others. Whether you need to share a small group curriculum, pictures, minutes from an Elder meeting, sermon files, or other resources, our file sharing makes the process seamless and incredibly simple.|
|Personal Communication Settings|
|When people get bombarded by emails, they end up opting out of ALL church communications, and YOU can’t get distribute critical information. Each person can choose what emails they receive from you because they control their own communication preferences. It’s that simple.|
|Everybody texts these days! We understand for some, that’s their preferred method of communication. That’s why every group leader can send text messages out to their members. On top of that, you can create a Twitter account for your Group and simultaneously post a Tweet along with the text message. Twitter + Text Messaging = Twext™|
|When people are serving others and meeting their needs, it strengthens your church engagement and gives them personal satisfaction. Whether your church members are providing meals for a family with a newborn, repairing vehicles, or helping a single mom move, you easily inform them about the opportunity to impact someone’s life. As people respond, the coordinator is automatically notified. You can also assign specific items to certain people which will tell them everything they need to know to help out.|
|Private Discussion Forums|
|Where can people in your church go to have private online discussions, share confidential prayer needs, and simply connect with others in a safe way? You can create a trusting culture by using your online community while also maintaining seamless integration for your core needs. More comprehensive than chat sessions or email, Messages keep a permanent history of the conversations for the group. That history can be seen by the whole church, all of the group’s members, or just the leaders. Also, group leaders have the ability to monitor and guide the conversation.|
|Forms & Surveys|
|Using forms and surveys that aren’t connected to your online community just makes everyone’s jobs more complicated. When everything isn’t in one place, it makes it much easier for things to fall apart, super fast. Without even logging in, people can fill out forms, surveys, and easily sign up and pay for events. You can customize forms so you get exactly what you asked for. People fill out the form, tell you what they’d like to purchase, pay the bill, and print out a confirmation. The form is then easily associated with the person and becomes a permanent part of their profile. We even include a variety of automation options to quickly kick off next steps and follow-up. This is a powerful example of the benefits you get from a fully integrated solution.|
|Recording and sharing notes after an event can mean the difference between a life changed and a missed opportunity. Small group leaders, Sunday School teachers, and anyone else who records attendance can easily include important things that happened. You can add an event topic, general notes like what was talked about, praises and prayer requests, as well as notes about new people; then you can quickly notify all the right people with a fast email. This greatly enhances leader-to-leader communication and encourages you be proactive when people need assistance or prayer.|
|When counseling people in your church or recording sensitive, confidential information, our Deluxe version provides peace of mind and discretion with private notes. You record the note on a profile and then simply indicate one of three privacy levels. If necessary, only you will be able to access the note… forever!|
|When people give online, you make it convenient and easy for them support the Kingdom work you are doing. It will also increase the number of people who visit your website. You can have a comprehensive contribution and payment solution that easily integrates with your public website and offers a simple way for people to increase your ministry efforts through a one-time or recurring gift. We also support online payments when filling out a form. This means people can sign up for retreats, conferences, special events, sponsor a family adopting a child, all in one simple place. *U.S. only. Additional fees apply.|
|Finding small groups, ministries, and other community opportunities can be a real pain sometimes. It doesn’t need to be that difficult, though! You can integrate with your public website and allow people to find connection points based on things that are most important to them. They can even quickly contact the leader while keeping contact information confidential.|
|Public Church Calendar|
|It can be a nightmare for members to keep up with all the events going on if it’s not in one, central location. There’s the picnic, and the movie night, missions trip meeting, and oh, don’t forget about the family camping trip! You can display any group’s event on your public website. People can see what’s going on in real-time, find details, RSVP, and export events to personal calendars.|
|You can create a healthy, interactive, private online community for your church because any leader or member can have access to it. This encourages the whole church to get on board because it is now the one and only way to get inside information about church life. The transition from your website to your private online community is seamless for the end user. We even allow you to customize the look and feel of the online community once people are logged in so they still feel like they are interacting with you, not us.|
|Our goal is to provide a powerful hub for community, communication, and connectedness. Our Application Programming Interface (API) allows you to determine how people will ultimately interact with that hub. If you have other software which needs to talk with our software or want your website to be the one-stop shop for anything anyone could ever need, you can make it happen with our robust API services.|
|Event Registration, Forms, & Surveys|
|Accurate and current information is so important to those responsible for serving, caring for, and communicating with the church. The Forms feature can help you get all the information you’ll ever need. Be creative when using them – everything from surveys to building usage requests, volunteer applications, prayer needs, event registrations, and everything else in-between! You can email forms, post them on your website, and share them on Facebook and Twitter. Form managers can easily find individual and group responses in order to make well-informed decisions. Most importantly, because our Forms do not require you to log in to complete them, anyone can fill one out.|
Many churches use a tiered structure that supports multiple departments and teams. Our Departmental group structure supports just that, and is built into all versions because we grasp just how important this is. Now it’s easier than ever to organize and view groups of people by department.
These days, people are on their phones way more than personal computers. Your church information will be securely accessible from mobile devices. Church staff and members with the right security privileges can quickly get phone numbers, email addresses, and home addresses for anyone. They can instantly initiate a call or send an email. They can easily get a map and driving directions. No more printing out directions or using those confusing paper maps! With the correct privileges, people can actually edit someone’s profile right from their mobile device, allowing them to quickly correct information on the fly.
Family & Individual Profiles
You will have access to Individual and Family profile management. Every person has a unique profile that contains key information about who they are and their involvement with the church. Individual profiles can then be associated with a Family. It is helpful to know more than just contact information – you can more comprehensively understand who they are.
Multi-site ministries require extra special systems, processes, and technology to truly be effective. Church leaders need to manage and measure ministry strategy at both campus-wide and ministry-wide levels. People need to connect and communicate within their own campus, while having access to ministry opportunities across multiple campuses. Meeting these needs requires sophisticated, flexible, yet user-friendly technology. We’ve got that! More info…
