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, the solution can be accessed on any device.

Churchteams' architecture is based on 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.

Church teams review

We have moved all of our administration needs to church teams and have found it really helpful to have so components in one place but also the amount of options it provides. I originally found out about it at another church when we used it for small groups but now I know it can be used for do much more. They have been very responsive in their communication with is and have been helpful in teaching us.

Pros

We like the wife variety of things church teams can be used for. We administrste worship teams, all our volunteers, small groups and even one on one discipleship meetings on the software.

Cons

We switched over to church teams from planning center and miss having the option for volunteers to block out dates or for volunteers to show up as being used in another area for Sundays when another department is trying to schedule them.

Great Software for small churches

This software is really user friendly! I'm new at using it and was nervous that I wouldn't be able to navigate my way around, but I've had no issues. I love how easy it is to find exactly what I need on Churchteams.

Pros

This software is easy to navigate and very user friendly

Cons

There are some options not available, but it could be that I'm not knowledgeable enough about this software to know the option is actually available.

Review of Churchteams Software

Churchteams has really helped me to manage our parish's Small Groups program in many ways! I can't imagine running these groups without it!!

Pros

Churchteams is excellent for keeping track of groups, communicating with them, tracking how successful groups are and how often they meet. It is also wonderful for people to use to find and sign up for a group.

Cons

Figuring out how to use different features has been difficult for me at times, but that is probably my fault and not the fault of the program.

Churchteams is a Powerhouse Management Tool

There is a significant improvement to the way we're able to manage and respond to our membership and volunteers. We look forward to making use of all the features available in Churchteams as our church continues to grow and expand.

Pros

Churchteams allows our staff and volunteers to organize ministries and stay on top of member management in an intuitive and professional way. The customer service responsiveness is phenomenal. The cost is reasonable, allowing our small church access to software features which would be broad enough to manage a mega-church.

Cons

When customizing a member directory, we were not able to include a specific attribute we would have liked to include. Truly though, this was something specific to our church and it's a stretch to label it a "con."

Amazing Customer Support

I am very impressed with their customer and tech support. I also respect the integrity of the ministry. The ministry leaders at our church have found it easy to use. All of my interaction with the software and the employees has been positive.

Pros

I have learned the software with little difficulty and I am not very computer savvy. I also love the functionality of the software. There is so much information that can be captured.

Cons

Understanding all the filters for running reports was a little challenging for me.

Excellent Membership/Attendance Software for Churches

The membership and contribution tracking is extremely helpful in our situation. The difficulties are primarily due to lack of buy in to the groups and attendance features. These have fallen by the wayside with the change in leadership.

Pros

Allows for customization.
Excellent data collection for member information.
Ability to export data

Cons

Reports could be easier to use. Some need additional parameter options.
Member information screen inefficiency - requires multiple steps to view and leave detail information screen.
Some Contribution features/reports are not user friendly.

Love Churchteams

Overall I am very pleased with Churchteams and the customer support is the very best I have had. They are also open to suggestions and this is very unique quality in a company. They certainly do value their customers opinions.

Pros

That it can be adapted to your own needs very easily, creating fields (attributes) to set-up search specific criteria's for one's own use. Easy database search options to track individuals down on the database, can search for someone through their email address or street address, for an example; instead of their name.

Cons

Just that the date format is USA not UK but that does not take too long to get used to.

Why pay for PCO when you can use ChurchTeams

Exceptional organization. No issues. Highly recommend them!

Pros

Churchteams is in my opinion the best ChMS out there. They are making continual improvements. It may not have all the polished interfaces that others have, but the functionality is great! It is designed by people with deep ministry experience for ministers.

Cons

They are working still on reporting. There are some reports I still can't get easily, but they are working on them.

Don't Hesitate

I have used it for years and have only had to call in a half a dozen times, but was always taken care of quickly, two or three times by the founders.

Pros

Ease of use and availability of technical help.

Cons

Can't think of any real cons.

Good Product

I would recommend this product to new and established churches

Pros

Our church loves this product and uses it all of the time. It is very nice to have all the contacts, communication and donations in one spot. It gives us the ability to check in and keep track of our members.

Cons

Some of the things that need improvement are the overall look of the software and the online giving platform.

Churchteams = Text To Church

Our Church Leaders are able to "Text To Me" and find their groups, take role, see where they are serving that day, and communicate with their groups. You can do it from your computer or phone. As our Church Family uses it more they really like it. Especially young families who use the check-in as they pull in te parking lot and then pick up their tags as they walk by the check-in counters.

Pros

I like that with "Text To Church" you can text to give, sign up for events, check-in your family. Text To Church is one of the big reasons we switched to Churchteams.

Cons

I do wish they had an Event Calendar with Planning/Set Up. When we have an event we add it to the calendar and include the Date, Time, Room, Set Up, etc. Then the custodians can log in each week/day and see what is happening, and set up rooms accordingly. This would make a huge difference for us.

Good software

Pros

I like the ability to access our information on any device. The cloud is a great feature. I like the ability to get many different reports. The customer service is outstanding. They go above and beyond with helping us.

Cons

The interface. Definitely needs to be updated. The Home page should have relevant stats and easy to get info that we always access. Home page should not be a place for CT to advertise to me. It should be a dashboard that I can fashion into what best suits my needs.

I would like this software to be a bit more intuitive. We have to spend time looking for how to do things. It should be easier to find certain functions.

There should be "Back" buttons. Not just the suggestion to click back in the browser.

CT is great for the price!

Pros

There have been some definite improvements over the last year. They are always willing to make changes and grow their software as things come up.

Cons

It is not very user friendly and it is very groups organized, not individual organized.

Easy to Use Software

Pros

Churchteams is easy to pick up and learn with wizards to walk through common database steps such as adding people, creating groups, editing attributes, and merging profiles. I also love the Customer service and getting to interact with the founder, directly. I've made suggestions to improve the software that have been considered and implemented. It's refreshing to work with a company that listens to its customers and acts upon feedback. It's been a pleasure working with Churchteams!

Cons

I would like to see additional features in the future that provide more flexibility when running workflows and reports. Sometimes when I query a report, I need the flexibility to write criteria as "and" or "or", but this is not currently an option as far as I have seen.

Great alternative!

Pros

The ability to take all the technology systems we have down to one. We can record giving, communicate, check-in students, manage, and give others access at different levels of security

Cons

Wish there was a simple way for volunteers to sign up for specifics, like sign up genius

Thoughts

I found the tech support to be great to work with--responsive within a short time when a question or issue is asked.

Pros

The ability to e-mail households from their database account.

Cons

We have had problems with child check-in and the printing of labels for this feature.
