For nearly every church, the second or third largest line item in their budget is related to facility operations. This includes the care, maintenance, energy consumption, capital reserves, etc. All of this can be lumped into the cost of facilities.

Churchteams was built around the idea of growing a church using groups as the common building material for every ministry. This means that everything that involves more than one person is managed as a group.
Every worship service, small group, class, committee, ministry team, leadership team, service team, mission team, event, and even assimilation step is managed as a group.
This is one of the design constructs that makes our software unique, powerful and user-friendly. Once understood, ministry rocks of all sizes are formed together to become a solidly built organization.
One of our advantages in the church management market is our agile culture. There is just one degree of separation between clients and our development team. As soon as a need or even a suggestion is vetted by a support team member, it is shared with development.
Development keeps a running evaluation of these suggestions. Some are as simple as a software edit and are immediately addressed. They don't even make it to the list. Others need affirmation, thought and evaluation. As they come up again and are mulled over, they make their way to the investment of a few hours or days. Others are much more involved and may take months or years to rise to the level of investment of weeks or even months of coding. This set of releases fit into the first two categories.

Many ministry events and mission trips have been cancelled this summer due to Covid 19 and social distancing. But as churches begin to re-open for worship, they are doing so with a renewed passion for their calling to make disciples of all nations.
We have an incredible team. For a number of months now, in addition to all the Covid 19 upgrades we've done, we've been working on upgrading our Navigation Bar buttons to make them more user-friendly.
If you are a long-time Churchteams user, you know what the software does, so you will be able to very quickly re-route from older paths to these new ones that we hope are more direct and more intuitive especially for new users.
If it weren't for Covid 19, our staff and many of you would be looking forward to being together in North Fort Worth next week. Barbecue and Tex-Mex were on the menu along with 2 days of fellowship and learning.
Apps are an important part of product offerings for some Church Management Systems. They are the primary delivery system for other church related online services like payment processing, content delivery, and communication.
