Churchteams Software


 

Churchteams church management system (ChMS) supports membership management, check-in, mass communications, contributions and assimilation for churches of any size. Web-based and optimized for mobile, it can be accessed on any device.

This software’s architecture is based around group membership. When a new member is added to the system, that person is assigned to one or more groups defined by the administrator—for example, small group leader, ministry team, Sunday school, event volunteer and home group. That person then receives emails and texts sent to that group.

Churchteams also enables church leaders to collect custom member attributes—birth dates, interests and class attendance, for example—as well as take pastoral and coaching notes and prayer requests. This data is then used to track assimilation, create reports and maintain complete profiles.

Check-in tools also offer a secure way to streamline attendance at classes, events and worship services with support for an unlimited number of check-in stations, barcode scanning and name tag printing.

As financial sec., I am entering offerings and making statements for our congregation. Ease of sending reports and reporting to church officers is made easier.
Wish I could save report design, and do more research when needed.

Church Teams is the best software I've used that combines database management with event management. You can see with one click if your member or prospect is active in any organization within the church and if they contribute financially to ministry. Within the groups you establish with CT you can see in real time who has registered for an event and how much they paid. This system makes it very easy to manage mission trips or camps, especially for youth. The communication with parents of students within a group is very easy. We could not do this in the previous software we used unless the parent was the person you selected. Thank you Mark, Boyd & Company for making our jobs more efficient!

Pros

Event income, contributions and activity is all contained within the software and is easily viewed and managed via individual records or as a category of income in reports. The developers of the software are very responsive to individual church needs and will add or change properties of the software to suit your needs if it also benefits the overall usefulness of the program for others.

Cons

Nothing!

Advice to Others

If you've used Shelby in the past and were frustrated at the lack of flexibility you will enjoy using this software! A plus is that is much less expensive!

ChurchTeams is customizable to your own unique environment. Provides a powerful tool to keep people connected. Has easy to use reporting features and email functions.

Pros

Absolutely love the online registration feature, has made collecting fees and signing up for events a breeze. Customer service support is the best I've ever had in the software industry. As I mentioned it's highly customizable and easy to make changes on the fly.

Cons

It does require significant planning and setup on the front and in order to get good utilization and data on the back end.

Advice to Others

Don't skimp on the training. Make sure you have a good training program for staff. Involve your end users as you are designing the system. Get their buy in upfront..

We recently converted from a major platform to Churchteams and could not be happier. We get more value and functionality that is accessible across the entire ministry team - paid and volunteer. The communication aspect is also great! I can't recommend enough that you test drive Churchteams! You will not be disappointed.

Pros

Functionality. Usability. Not just for the church secretary. So easy even the non-technical can use it.

Cons

Financial reporting for contributions could use a few improvements but support has been very helpful and open to our questions and suggestions.

Advice to Others

Don't wait. Try this. It was designed by an Education/Discipleship/Small groups minister for ministers to utilize to track more than data on people. It is designed to manage people's journey with Jesus and helping them continually take closer steps to Him.

We cannot say enough about how we have been blessed by this software and the people in Customer Support. This software has put so much control into the hands of the people who need it. We have been able to equip groups with an abundance of information on a 24/7 basis. They are no longer dependent on 'office hours' to receive important information. They are able to access this information from anywhere and any time. Our ability to know what people are involved in, what their current contact information is and where they are involved has allowed us to care for our church family in a way that is organized and immediate.

I love that you can auto send out the attendance sheets for each week and that the people are included on the sheet, so it's a simply click and submit process.

Inability to communicate with our current church database. We use two systems because ChurchTeams does not have all of the features we need out of a church-wide database, resulting in a duplication of tasks/steps.

Recommendations

Would love to have the ability to book resources (rooms on campus), manage finances, tack and track online giving and text giving, check out library of studies the church has (and what is currently "in" and available to check out) . . . all in the same program.

Churchteams is uniquely designed to support and grow a church that is built around small groups. It has some very intuitive features that help you support and track group life and group health. I have also found their tech support to very responsive and open to new improvements to their system.

I would like to see their online formatting and integration with church websites to improve in functionality and aesthetics.

Recommendations

If you are truly desiring to connect people in groups, track group health and design a process that tracks people through a spiritual growth road-map, this is truly a great software. Because of the wide array of customize-able options, it is good to compare these specific features, before landing on a final software for your church.

One thing that I really like about churchteams is that it is easily accessible. So often, I find myself needing a person's contact info while I'm on the go. Using both my laptop and smartphone, churchteams is always available for me, allowing me to better communicate and meet the needs of my parishioners, volunteers, and friends.

Likes Least

The only thing I don't love about churchteams is that it takes sometime to master the full capabilities of the site. Once you understand how churchteams works it's a huge aid, but it can be a bit intimidating for the first time user.

Recommendations

I would encourage other pastors and leaders who work with many individuals to simplify their lives by streamlining their contact info and data. Churchteams saves me from many headaches, tedious legwork, and even lets me benefit from the relational connections made by other employees because we all share one platform for communication and contacts. Don't pass up this chance to jettison your communication databases to new heights.

Churchteams provides such an amazing way to keep up with the various ministries here at Valley Real Life. I have the opportunity to call on the first time visitors plus 5 other areas of connect ministries...Churchteams makes this a simple & organized process. It's like having a 24/7 administrator on call anytime I need it. The reports area in Chruchteams is very helpful to get an overall view of how attendance is going in the small groups or to be up on many of demographics we might need to monitor growth or a variety of different things.

Likes Least

Sometimes after writing in the notes window it won't return to the roster list and I'll have to go through the group list to find the group I was in last. Hopefully that makes since.

Recommendations

It is a great system for keeping on top of things and I would highly recommend it for any Church needing a tool to keep track of numerous things.

I love the automated emails that go to group leaders. It makes it easy for them to respond and keep us in the loop regarding who is staying connected and who we may need to reach out too! There is no sign in process with passwords! Churchteams makes it easy by eliminating all the road blocks that would keep people from entering information about their groups.

Likes Least

As a youth pastor, I would like a couple more key pieces of info that would automatically drop people into certain "smart groups" so I don't have to create a bunch of groups. I would also like to see more text message options. Needing to have a persons provider is a constant roadblock we face.

Recommendations

Try it and talk to the leaders if you find practical improvements. They are always working harder to make ChurchTeams a leader in group management.

I haven't worked much with their staff, but Churchteams is very simple to navigate and very user friendly. When I started on staff at the church nobody walked me through using it. I taught myself, so that says something about the product.

I would have to say that I'm not in love with their web platform. I think it could use a revamp and some updating. But this is coming from someone who values creativity and aesthetics.

Recommendations

We only use Churchteams for our Small Groups, but I know there are several other capabilities and it can essentially be used for a churches complete database, including tithe tracking, so I would recommend finding out all of the capabilities of the software.
