New!  Use the Office Number for Text-to-Church

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 4/14/20 2:00 PM
Talk about convenient.  Just text the word GIVE to the church office number to make or set up a donation.  HELP provides a short tutorial. EVENTS sends a list of keywords to choose from to give or join anything.  
 
CHECK enhances security and captures attendance - even if watching the service online.  ME goes to my personal page in the database.  Add Links with your keywords to go anywhere on the Internet. 
 
The great thing about this upgrade is that the number is already in the contacts for many of the people who attend your church.  They call it to talk to staff.  But now they can text it to do everything else.

Not connecting on Sundays?  This NEW Text-to-Checkin upgrade can help!

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 3/31/20 3:00 PM

All of us miss being together on Sundays but we're finding new paths to stay connected.  Like the creative ways many of you are using Text-to-Church to help.

One recent idea was to use All Check to have people text to let us know they were watching the live-stream or video.  It also gives them an opportunity to respond, give and stay informed.  Like a church bulletin, but on steroids.

But there was a problem.  The system required starting up a label printer in order to use Check-in.  So, we changed development priorities last week and are excited to release an upgrade to Check-in that allows you to create an automatic check-in start up schedule without having to start a label printer.

Best Practice w/ Feature Upgrade:  Check-in Everyone & Auto-Print Youth/Volunteer Name Tags

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 5/15/18 7:02 AM

The best place to connect with parents on Sunday morning is when they check-in their kids.  This is just as true for your members and regular attenders as it is for your guests.  You may already be using that time to start the follow-up process.  If not, see section D in the check-in view.  But, why not use the same opportunity to capture attendance for everything everyone in the family is attending or serving in that morning?

Software for Youth Camp

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 4/3/18 10:08 AM

The highlight of the youth ministry year is often that week everyone gets on a bus to go sleep in a cabin, play lots of games, and learn more about what it means to follow Jesus as a teenager. Lives are changed forever at youth camp.

What is Text-TO-Church?

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 10/24/17 7:30 AM

Text-TO-Church TM is a new User Interface concept.  It combines texting ideas that have been the domain of specialty platforms, with the functionality of a full church management system.  For over a decade people have been able to send a text to donate to an online giving platform.  In recent years applications were developed to text to register for something like an event or a content drip.  With Text-TO-Church, all the functionality of your church database is now just a text away.  Here's the list of current features that fit under the Text-TO-Church concept.  Click the link for a more complete explanation of each one.  The Text-To-Church Innovation post was written to help you actually experience everything except Text-to-ME which wasn't done at that time.

Text-to-ME!

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 10/10/17 7:54 AM

I have done several blog posts the past 4 months related to texting.  The response has been incredible.  We are excited to see this innovation engage guests, regular attenders, members  and staff in a new, extremely relevant way.  The more we have worked with it, the more we realize the potential of texting as a tool for simple and user-specific interface with your Churchteams database.
