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. 

In the last post, I showed you how attendance helps you recognize the trust level in your groups.  Like heat  is vital to baking bread, so trust is essential to authentic relationships.

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

For Church Geeks like us, January means it's time to send out giving statements.  You could send out the familiar "thank you and here's what happened last year" cover letter that you  print, stuff in an envelope, seal, stamp and mail.  But, it's 2020 and there are some creative things you can do to spice it up this year.  Here are some thoughts on how to salt your giving statement content and  pepper your process.

User's Gathering 2020

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!

A number of years ago we started getting questions about User's Gatherings.  We decided to try one in April, 2018 and had about 25 friends join us for a really encouraging half day together.  Everyone wanted to do it again, but longer.  The Facebook Churchteams closed group was birthed from this event.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 12/3/19 10:15 AM

Most non-staff attenders and leaders use Churchteams by completing a form, responding to a push notification (email or text) or by using Text-to-ChurchTM.  However, we've had a lot of requests for non-staff level access through a more traditional (email address with a password) login.  We released an upgrade yesterday to address this need.

We've found that no matter how detailed we get in the development stage, there are always things to sharpen when upgrades go into production.  This has been true of the Dashboard release we did at the end of October.  I already shared about the Search and Legal Name additions.  Here are a few more tweaks that we released just yesterday. Take some time to master them and you'll be more efficient with Churchteams than ever before.
