Are all of your ministries using the same tools for church service registration and ticketed events? Make the experience more streamlined by using the same platform across ministries. Here, we’ll explore church management systems with online registration. 

As a church grows, it’s not uncommon to find that each ministry area is using a different tool to accomplish a similar goal. One common area this occurs is in event ticketing or registration. The youth department might use EventBrite while the men’s ministry uses SignUpGenius.  And while many churches are limiting attendance and require reservation, Sunday morning services have quickly become a ticketed event, as well.

Instead of using multiple tools for the same function, use the church’s existing ChMS tool to allow people to register for events online. Thankfully, many ChMS tools already include an online ticketing feature.

#1 – Breeze

Breeze is a church management system that supports event scheduling and online registration. Users can also create custom registration forms within the platform for each unique event. With Breeze, attendees can also pay for the event at the time of sign-up.  

#2 – FaithLife Equip

With FaithLife Equip, users can create events and then automatically start promoting on the church’s website and on presentations during services. STOP Individuals can RSVP for events, but they don’t have the ability to sell tickets online (yet). Additionally, Equip includes media to use in event announcements such as graphics for baby dedications, Bible studies, and more.

#3 – FaithTeams

With Custom Forms, churches can create sign-up forms so people can register for events. This feature includes the ability to accept registration payments within the form. Users can embed these forms into their church website, share them via social media, or link to a form from a button on their website.

 #4 – Planning Center

One of the products Planning Center offers is an event registration tool. With registrations, users can create various attendee types with unique pricing and requirements. Within a registration, you can provide attendees with the option to purchase additional items that correspond to the event. Registrants can pay for their tickets and additional items. You can also provide early bird (or other) discounts, run reports, and send email reminders to attendees.

#5 – Realm

Realm is a church management system that offers online registration as well as registration form functionality. Within the form, attendees can pay fees for scheduled events and provide any anticipated or requested information.

#6 – TouchPoint

The TouchPoint ChMS includes an optional module for processing reserved seating ticket sales. Users can build venues in their TouchPoint database, create events, set social distancing rules, and sell tickets online or in person. 

If your church isn’t using a ChMS yet, or if yours doesn’t include online ticketing functionality, there are standalone options to consider, also.
