Mission Trips And Fundraising

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 8/29/17 10:06 AM
I love mission trips.  They give people the opportunity to serve and reach people outside their normal circles or even country.  By travelling and serving together,  mission trips build relationships within the team.  Almost always the participant grows in his/her relationship with Jesus.  And mission trips give friends and family the opportunity to pray for, encourage and support those going.  Managing this fundraising / team-building process has never been easier.  We simply tweaked a few things in current features you already love to help.  Here's how you do it:

New Upgrades: Texting Worship Attendance

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 8/22/17 7:25 AM
A couple of months ago, I posted this blog post on texting worship attendance.  It has been the most opened blog post year to date.  As churches have started to experiment with this solution to an age old problem, we uncovered the need for a couple of revisions.  Between that post and this one, you should have a pretty powerful alternative way to take worship attendance.  (BTW, notice in this image how easy it is to use text attendance with text to give.)

Managing The Stress of Recruiting Volunteers

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 8/8/17 9:47 AM

 August is the time of the year that many church staff are feeling the pressure of recruiting for their fall ministies.  The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers few.  And the staff are feeling the pressure of both.   I remember this season well from my many years as a small group and family pastor.  My wife and kids remember it as well.  Dad was always a little more amped up.

A client/friend set up a call with me recently to talk about the best way to set up their groups for volunteer scheduling.  As we talked, I realized that it might be helpful to do a blog post to help church volunteers and staff consider how to set up volunteer teams to make scheduling as easy as possible.

4 Ways Taking Attendance Helps You Make Disciples

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 7/18/17 7:56 AM

I often talk with church staff and pastors about the discipline of taking attendance and why it matters.  Neither,  "because we've always done it that way",  nor "we've never done it before" are persuasive arguments.

Rerouted to Churchteams

Posted by James Seawell on 7/11/17 8:02 AM

Have you ever been on a trip and heard that familiar robotic voice…rerouting? The implication is that you’ve made a wrong turn somewhere and you need to get back on track. Sometimes, it’s not that you made a wrong turn, but the GPS that you are following found a faster, better route to the same destination.

Two Values That Guide Our Support

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 7/4/17 8:02 AM

A few weeks ago one of our clients was having an issue with a company that was purchased a couple of years ago by a private equity firm.  He contacted me to see if we might have an idea about what was going on.   When I emailed the company to learn more, I discovered that they were training new frontline support staff.  They had hired young people with a great heart who did not yet have the experience our client expected and needed.

Texting Worship Attendance

So, we're talking about text to register a couple of weeks ago.  James throws out the idea of using texting to take worship attendance.  This is an age-old question that churches ask us about all the time.  We discuss it more, and Mark realizes it's something he can easily add.  A day later and it's done.
