Keeping track of everything in your church is challenging.
You have a gazillion tasks to complete.
You have a number of requests from church members to respond to.
You have to follow up with first-time guests.
And on and on and on and on.
To keep your finger on the pulse of the life of your church, you're convinced your church needs church management software.
However, when it comes to convincing your pastor to say "yes" to ...
... trying new software ...
... a new process ...
... paying for the tools you need ...
You can have your work cut out for you.
But don't sweat it.
We're going to share with you practical and ethical ways you can convince your pastor to get on board the church management software (ChMS) train.
One of the best ways to help people see your point of view is to ask him or her questions.
To help your pastor see the need for ChMS, ask these questions:
There are more questions you can ask. But these questions will help your pastor think through your church's need.
"Don't bring me problems, bring me solutions," is an old business proverb.
Instead of only identifying church management problems in your church. Provide a list of solutions church management software can provide.
Here are several common church administrative problems and solutions the right ChMS can provide:
A ChMS enables you to send out mass emails or texts.
To make this quick and easy, you can use templates to help you send messages on a regular basis.
A church management software allows you to schedule volunteers based on their availability.
You can also create a detailed service plan or run sheet for your team use for your worship services and events.
A ChMS enables you to organize and designate all funds. It also empowers you to generate reports so that you can see how your church spends money.
What is more, people today hardly use checks, and they rarely carry with them a significant amount of cash.
With church management software, you can make it easy for people to give online, which is doubly true when it's combined with Tithe.ly Giving.
Checking children, adults or volunteers into services and events can be time-consuming.
But having ChMS makes this process easy, increases accountability, and streamlines communication.
By keeping track of everyone through check-in systems, you can still lead your church without losing any more time you could have spent on what matters most.
