Posted by Boyd Pelley on 1/14/20 9:49 AM

Last  fall I started a blog series on Small Groups called Aim Small.  My hope with this series is to bring together our best learnings about managing small groups that make disciples.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 1/7/20 2:30 PM

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 12/10/19 9:45 AM

Relationships are a big deal for us.  That's obviously true since we build software around relationship management.  But, it's also true in how we meet, train and support churches.  We love hanging out with you guys!
