User Gathering Best Practices: How to Use Growthfinder for Values & Curriculum

Posted by Jennifer Fischhaber on 6/12/18 4:49 PM

Our pastoral staff does a fantastic job of presenting the core values of our church each year in a sermon series.  Worship.  Connect.  Serve.  Invest.  We have them posted on our website.  We have signage for the foyer.  We even go into deep detail during the membership class.  However, we found that when it came to actually putting these core values into practice, some folks were at a loss as to where to start.

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.

How To Learn Churchteams

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 2/14/17 8:36 AM

For years I've done webinars to show prospects and clients together how to get the most out of the different features of the software.  At first, this was fine because the feature set was small groups and then membership.  As we added features, I added webinars (virtual classes) for contributions, check-in, volunteers & events, and setup & help.  For about a year I've had a feeling that we could do better.  With input from clients and staff, we just changed our learning process to three stages:  Get Acquainted, Get Going, and Get Trained.

Why Personal Support Matters

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 1/24/17 9:06 AM

Today's church management software is expected to be easy for the user to figure out and use. Unfortunately, too many churches are still using systems that don't fit this criteria. In both cases the preferred method of support is video, FAQ, or paying for a support contract. Here are three reasons we are convinced personal support matters and should be a priority rather than a last resort.

7 Subtleties About Churchteams Pricing

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 12/13/16 8:04 AM

Churchteams pricing is done differently than most Church Management Systems. We think it is the most customer-centric which aligns with our #1 value - great service.  It is based simply on the number of people in the database.  It doesn't matter if a person is an adult or child, active or inactive, or a member or not.  Nor does it matter if you use one feature or all of them.  However, here are 7 subtleties in this approach you should be aware of.

Pricing Church Software: Why we don't charge for support.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 11/29/16 8:01 AM

When first created, software was a product that either came with your computer or you purchased and downloaded.  The Internet changed this.  The "cloud" is now the host for all your programs and files.  Your computer, tablet and phone just need to be able to access these "web-based" applications.   In other words your software became a service, not a product.  But, we've been slow to grasp the significance of this change.
