Group consistency, a report upgrade, & automation.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 4/13/21 3:00 PM

In discipleship discussions, we often quote 2 Timothy 2:2 as a pillar text for understanding discipleship that multiplies disciples.  The idea, of course, is that Paul invested in training Timothy and was encouraging him to invest in other people who would invest in others.  

Notice the adjective that Paul uses to describe the people in whom Timothy was to invest his time.  Depending on your translation, the word is generally reliable (NIV, NLT), or faithful (ESV, NASB, KJV).  It is someone in whom you trust.

New! Roundtable releases.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 3/30/21 10:30 AM

Another huge benefit of the Roundtables that we've been doing the past couple of months has been the amazing ideas for upgrades and tweaks we've gotten as we interact with our most engaged users.

Many of the upgrades in this post came from that environment.  Some came directly through support.  All of them are a picture of our commitment to build the best software for churches in the context of community.

New! Upgrades to meet post-Covid expectations.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 2/9/21 3:00 PM

The story of 2020 will always be the global pandemic of Covid-19.  All of us are different.  It's worth the time to log what we've lost and grieve it well.  It's also worth the time to examine what we've gained and how to build on it. I hope you're doing that personally and as a church. 

The upgrades we've released the past few months reflect insights gained from working closely with clients in 2020.  Some of these are really minute, but the first one in particular positions us well for the post-Covid expectations of performance at the peak time of Sunday mornings.

Our New! Digital Assistant - Scheduled Reports. (Top release of 2020)

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 12/16/20 8:00 AM
For centuries Israel lived in darkness.  Oppressed by foreign armies.  God seemed to be silent. Hope was in a long ago message that a messiah would come. The Christ-child brought light to the world that we celebrate today, thousands of years later. Merry Christmas, friends. Christ has come.
 
Like you, we do what we do, because of Jesus. He came for us and we live for Him. Churchteams is His.  So, to cap off 2020, we are excited to give you, His church, a gift.  The best we have.  Our top release of the year.  A new Digital Assistant - Scheduled Reports.

Like you, we love people.  If you haven't seen it, watch our short video, People Are Your Priority
 
For you that means focusing less on tasks and more on people.  For us that means helping you focus less on tasks. We do that by listening.
 
We listen to your questions, your suggestions, and your heart.  These four upgrades in the past couple of months are examples of how we respond to what you say.  The people who suggested each of these already know about the upgrade.  This is for everyone else.

New! Safety Option For Kids: Room Check-in Count & Close.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 8/18/20 9:45 AM
Kids returning to school in the midst of this Covid pandemic is a headline every day and will be for the next month or two.  It raises big concerns for churches as well as they think about restarting Sunday morning children's programming.
 
A few weeks ago, I offered an idea and process for getting a " Medical Affirmation Before Check-in."  In response to a large client's request, last night we released another helpful kid's ministry re-start safety feature that you need to know about.  We call it Room Check-in Count and Close.

Without thinking you look up information in the database or look at a Churchteams registration on your website.  As soon as your done you try to go back to the email and it's gone.
