When we launched Church Community Builder, our primary focus was to find ways to make church leaders more effective. We never want to lose sight of this focus. We’re always thinking about what we can do to serve our church partners better, and this has led to many technological advances in our software over the years. We get feedback through support tickets, coaching calls, beta testers, Tribes conversations, and more, but nothing can really replace getting our feet on the ground to walk and talk with church leaders in their own space. That’s why, every year, the leadership team and several associates from across our teams here go on a road trip.
This year, we visited three churches in southern California. We spent a week with them, looking into their processes, asking them questions, getting their feedback, and digging into what they need and how we can help them. It was a great trip. We came back with a lot of ideas for features we could tweak or change or implement to make church processes easier. And more than that, we were reminded of the faces behind ministry, the people and the hard work that make all of it possible.
We’re back home in Colorado now, ready and raring to go. In addition to listening to you, our partners, on how we can serve you better, we recently changed how we make improvements to our software. This change will mean shorter development cycles and faster fixes to problems. It will enable us to develop features and fixes more quickly and push them out as we complete them instead of waiting for an entire release cycle to complete — meaning our development is more responsive than ever. We’re always looking for better ways to serve our church partners, through our software, coaching, and tribes, because we know the work you do is life-changing.
Thanks for everything you do.
