Leading your church to live and love like Jesus is one part art, and one part science.
As you preach the Bible, provide small groups, and teach your people to follow Jesus, you also need to build relationships with your church members.
At its core, building relationships with your church is based on your communication. You need to stay in touch with your church to build a relationship of trust and mutual respect.
But this is easier said than done.
You're busy ...
... preparing your sermons ...
... counseling people ...
... performing miscellaneous administrative tasks ...
... coordinate your volunteers
To manage the life of your church, you need an all-in-one system to keep track of everyone.
Enter church management software
The science of cultivating the spiritual life of your church revolves around the tools and resources you use to communicate.
One of the best tools to easily keep in touch with your church members and communicate with them is church management software (ChMS).
In no particular order, here are five great ways church management software helps you stay in touch with your church.
1. Mass communication
With Tithe.ly Church Management, you can access your church members' contact information and communicate with multiple people via email, SMS, or printed letters.
To save yourself time, you can also create templates for emails or letters your regularly send out.
2. Keep track of families
Need to update the contact information for a family?
Making contacting parents and guardians easy, as well as generate reports, by linking everyone together in your database.
3. Find who you forgot
Can't quite remember someone's name? Need to find specific people for a new project?
With Tithe.ly Church Management, you can specify what people group you’d like to find. You can also search for people based on their gender, location, or customized criteria you create.
4. Know who's active or inactive
Do you need help knowing who's active or inactive in your church?
Have you observed a few families absent from your worship services for a few weeks?
With church management software, you can create categories to help you distinguish between different people groups in your church—e.g., active members, first-time guests, or inactive people.
Know what else?
You can add custom fields to store additional information, such as allergies, interests, or other relevant info.
5. Stay up-to-date with everyone
Helping first-time guests get involved with your church is crucial for their spiritual development.
To help visitors get more involved with your church, you can create and track different processes in your church with step-by-step flows. For example, you can create a process from welcoming a first-time guest to leading them toward participating in a small group or Bible Study.
6. Keep notes
In addition to these features, church management software helps you to keep personal notes on all your members, have an updated member directory, and track people via check-ins. This not only records event attendance. But it also ensures that parents know their children’s whereabouts at all times.
