Posted by Boyd Pelley on 4/18/17 8:00 AM
 
Generally, we release just a couple of really major upgrades a year.  This is one you don't want to miss.  If you're not the staff person in charge of finances, please forward this to them.  They will love you for it.
  
Why should you consider adding or changing to Churchteams online giving and text to give?
  1. Stewardship grows.  Convenience and consistency increase giving.
  2. Seamlessly integrated.  Contributions automatically post to donor's giving record.
  3. Save money.  On monthly access and per transaction fees.
  4. State of the art simple.
  5. Service you know and trust.

As you work towards increasing new parishioner retention, you have to start reaching out to newcomers through technological means.
