As a church, you’ve probably seen the crazy spike in your attendance with new, old, and current Easter visitors on Easter Sunday. We’ve gathered the top ways to engage first-time church visitors on Easter.
Thanks to Covid-19, 2020 was perhaps the most 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.
Church management software can be an incredible tool for supporting ministry efforts. Whether you’re implementing a ChMS for the first time or migrating to a different one, you’ll need to include transitioning church staff to a new ChMS in your to-do list.
Each year, Capterra updates a top 20 software list in a variety of industries. We have been grateful over the years for their attention to this market and find their website very useful in helping churches find the best church management software for their organization.
In the past, they have published a "Top 20 Most User-Friendly ChMS infographic" and a "Top 20 Most Affordable ChMS infographic," Capterra is now only updating this one Top 20 Church Management Software list moving forward.
Historically, church databases have been systems that require a lot of manual upkeep. In addition to making sure contact records are up-to-date, they also had to keep track of which members were active with their church, and which ones were not. But in a growing church with multiple campuses and a diverse community, having just two category ‘buckets’ doesn’t provide the level of detail a church needs to effectively communicate with its community. And, it goes without saying that manually tracking churches with hundreds or thousands of members is nearly impossible. The good news is, church databases have become much more sophisticated and able to do much of this tracking and sorting automatically.
