Church Management Software
Recently technology has played a new role in helping churches manage their congregation. A good church management system can easily lower a organization's overhead and decrease work hours significantly.
There are several church database management systems out there; some of them free, some open source and some of them are a paid service. Regardless if you're a small church or a large "mega-church" you have to find the church management system that's going to serve you for the long-term of your organization's needs.
There should be some basic functionality built within the software application.Basic functions are as follows:
- Team Management
- Member Management
- Visitor Retention
- Alerts and Auto-Emails
- Follow-ups & Pastoral Care
Some databases that are more robust will have these additional features:
- Attendance Tracking
- Unified Communications
- Customizable Design
- Ministry Setup(Youth, Kids, Men, Women and more...)
Regardless of what church management software that you use you really need to do your due diligence and choose the top database that will fit your church's needs.
