Thanks to Covid-19, 2020 was a challenging time period for churches. This next year could be the year to turn things around. There’s no better way to start fresh than by implementing a fully integrated church management software (ChMS) solution. A strong ChMS will integrate online giving, donor engagement, and church management together. Integrated management software can free your church staff from the burden of getting multiple solutions to “talk” to one another. With integrated ChMS, your church can focus on ministry, not the tech behind it.

Here are four reasons to use a fully integrated church management software solution:

#1 – Planning and Preparation

To start 2021 off right, prepare your ministry for upcoming events with a fully integrated ChMS. Having a good ChMS is like hiring an entire team to handle the details so you don’t miss a thing. For instance, a ChMS will help you prepare for returning crowds during Easter, follow up with visitors, make new members feel welcome, manage volunteer workers, increase donations, and more.

#2 – Improves Organization

Implementing a ChMS allows you to automate and streamline your member data. No longer will you need to “jump” between platforms to get things done, or repeatedly copy and paste member information. A ChMS puts everything in one place, where all modules can access it—from your contact list to your email list to your accounting solution. And by using an all-in-one cloud-based platform, you can be confident not only in the security of your data but also in the ability to run it from any browser, on any device.

#3 – Enhances Communication

Whether you’re communicating with your entire congregation, a specific small group, volunteers, or an outreach ministry team, an integrated ChMS makes it easy to send the message you need from one familiar dashboard. Choose between phone calls, texting, and email to communicate in the means that’s best received by any group fast.

#4 – Boosts Giving

An integrated ChMS can even increase giving. Nonprofit Source reports that churches that accept tithing online increase donations by an astounding 32%. Some churches have found that a ChMS quickly pays for itself by providing online giving and streamlining church accounting practices. There’s no better time than now to get your church heading in the best, positive direction with a ChMS that’s ready to go.
