Church Software Feature - Groups

Posted by Church Community Builder on Mar 11, 2019 12:52:49 PM


Empowered leaders result in empowered people, and that’s why our integrated Groups feature. It helps leaders know where their people are at, and the next steps they can take in their spiritual journey.


Nurture community and lead groups directly from a mobile app. Empower group leaders with tools to help them manage group participants, track attendance, communicate with their group, and organize events. Connect group members with the ability to send messages, post needs for others to support, and register for group events.


Leaders can communicate with their group within the software and group members can respond to the leader as well as each other. Send emails or mail merges, start discussions on message board threads, or use our text messaging feature to text group members!


Haven’t seen one of your regular attendees in awhile? Simply look at their profile and you’ll see all of their small group attendance records, plus any other events they’ve been attending at your church. Small group leaders can help you stay up to date with how people are doing, by tracking group attendance and entering notes right from their phones. No clipboard needed.


From a garage sale fundraiser to setting up a meal train for the parents of a newborn, whatever your need is, post it! Get your people involved in ministry by inviting them to serve the needs within the church and community!

Church Software Feature - Process Queues

Posted by Church Community Builder on Mar 11, 2019 12:52:33 PM


Just like you, we believe people shouldn't fall through the cracks. From following up with a first time guest, to connecting someone with a volunteer opportunity, the next steps in the process are always clear and easy to follow so no one gets left behind.


Let's say you're talking to someone on the phone and they mention they want more information about Youth ministry? Get them connected by adding them to the Youth ministry process. The software will alert the Youth staff when to follow up and allow them to connect with that person. You can also use a process to do things like get a person plugged into a small group. The beauty of it all is that your congregation can be in charge of each step of the process. This allows remote people to volunteer in welcoming first time guests or making blankets for newborns!


  • Send personalized follow up emails to first time guests inviting them to join a home group!
  • Follow up with people who’ve had major life events. If a member lost a loved one, you can set a reminder to reach out to them over the holidays to check in and see how they’re doing and send them flowers.
  • Create a plan for a missions team. Remind your team about upcoming team meetings, financial check points and packing lists.
  • Streamline the volunteer application follow-up process. Processes will help you make sure that new volunteers go through the correct application steps and are placed in the appropriate position to help prevent burn out!

Church Software Feature - Giving

Posted by Church Community Builder on Mar 6, 2019 11:32:25 PM


Your members will be able to give from any device, and they don’t have to login to pay for things like a men’s retreat. This makes all incoming transactions easy for you and the person giving. Create even higher engagement and deeper insight by combining our software with ChurchStaq.

Automate giving reports

Need a report of weekly donations? You can build out the report right in our software in seconds and send it to other staff.

Run donor analysis reports

Let’s say you want to communicate with all of your first time givers. Now you’re able to simply pull a report and send all of those first time givers an email with a personalized thank you! Also, when a person donates, their information is automatically updated across our software.


With the Giving feature you can send out an email to everyone who hasn’t logged in to the software. It's a nice reminder that they can access their End of Year Giving Statements and any of their giving information at any time right in the software. This allows you to save money and people are able to keep track of all their donations digitally.

Digital Giving

No matter how you’re giving - on your phone, cutting checks, or passing the plate - Pushpay has you covered with a complete suite of giving tools that makes donating easy and reconciling simple.

With online, mobile, or text giving, Pushpay has all the church giving options you could ever need — and thanks to cash and check reconciliation, you can store all your giving data in one place.
