Multisite Church Software

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 6/6/17 7:32 AM

In 2014, our friends at Leadership Network found that over 8,000 churches in the U.S. were multisite.  And, that was 3 years ago!  In a blog post last year, Portable Church points out that churches of all sizes are going multisite.  This isn't a fad, it's now a normal part of ministry.  In fact I go to a campus of a very large, multisite church ... and love it.   So, what must church software be able to do to serve this growing movement?   Here are six things I believe are essential.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 5/16/17 8:28 AM

Giving online and by text.  Upgrades.

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.
