RocoCPM Church Project Management Software Aims to Streamline Church Workflow

The nonprofit and secular industries are no stranger to project management software, but until now, church project management software hasn't been on anyone's radar. Churches simply muddled through with systems in place either cobbling together church management software alongside emails, spreadsheets, and perhaps a Google Group or some other free software that allowed them to coordinate large projects involving staff and volunteers.

Corner Room Music Releases Psalm Songs Vol. 1 [Giveaway]

As a worship leader, songwriter, and lover of music, I get really excited when independent Christian songwriters reach out to me and ask me to review their music. (Not that I don't love writing about church technology all the day long . . .) The Psalms hold a special place in most of our hearts. They speak a language that is raw, real, and open; they seem to gush with the heart of God through his most faithful servants: Moses, Asaph, David, Solomon and the Sons of Korah. How is it possible that they still relate so closely to our lives today? ...

We buy a book, bring it home, and within days it's collecting dust. While it may seem anti-intuitive, this is one area where the move to a more tech savvy church can help. ...

5 Critical Guidelines for Children’s Ministry Volunteers [Free ebook]

Volunteers are the backbone of any ministry. Even a large church cannot run its children’s ministry solely with paid staff—they need to develop a solid core of reliable volunteers. In some cases, recruitment can be challenging. However, that does not mean you should ever compromise on your standards for volunteers. Your volunteers are the first line of defense in keeping kids safe and secure within your ministry. They should be people of good character who are spiritually sound and trustworthy, and who have been through the background check process your church has put in place. People want to be part ...

[Article below is an excerpt from the free ebook From Pews to Podcasts: What Technology Wants for the Church, by Adam Graber.] Both Christmas and Easter are part of what many Christians call the “Church year.” These holidays hark back to a time when people structured their lives according to a “liturgy.” . . . For Christians throughout history, this liturgical Church calendar wasn’t simply a set of dates to remind them of Christ’s life. The year-long liturgy was part of a bigger, more cosmic drama. The whole earth, Christians believed, was caught between Heaven and Hell. Our world was ground zero ...
