About Churchteams

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 request...

Great Platform, Great Service, Great Price

I can't say enough about the support from ChurchTeams and I also appreicate their willingness and ability to implement almost everything we have requested or figure out a work around that meets our expectations. They are also always improving the software and releasing updates often and they listen to the ChurchTeams community.

Pros

ChurchTeams is extremely functional. It has everything and more than many of the major players in the ChMS market. Church to Text is an excellent example. Their support and service is second to none. They are very responsive to enhancement requests and assistance with reports and any aspect of their system. Also their price is extremely economical.

Cons

I can’t really say there is anything I dislike. One of the things I mentioned to them was to enhance the GUI interface to have the slick feel of some of the newer platforms. In my opinion ChurchTeams has always been about function over aesthetics but I do know they are currently working to improve the GUI interface.

Reasons for choosing Churchteams

A major factor came down to price and the fact we were already familiar with ChurchTeams and their support is second to none. When we were talking with ChurchTeams about converting to their platform completely there was some functionality that we needed that didn't exist in the software. Their development team committed to implementing the functionality we needed and it was rolled out just before the completion of our migration and it works exactly as discussed and meets our needs. I can't say enough about how they take care of their customers!

Reasons for switching to Churchteams

We were approached by ACS about switching to Realm so we decided to evaluate ChMS systems rather than blindly switching because we had been with ACS for so long. We have been using ChurchTeams for over 8 years for adult groups as a supplement to ACS because ACS lacked functionality that we wanted that ChurchTeams had. Since we had been with ACS for over 20 years it was tough to get buy in from all of our staff but we finally made the decision to fully switch to ChurchTeams and drop ACS. ChurchTeams Online Giving and payment options are also EXTREMELY competitive in their rates and have saved us tens of thousands of dollars over our former online giving provider.

Response from ChurchTeams

Brad, thank you for this very kind review. We love colaboring with you guys for the sake of the Kingdom. Technology is constantly evolving and changing. We want to stay in front of that as best we can. Your thoughts and feedback are instrumental to that goal. Thanks, Boyd

My staff loves Churchteams

I have found it a joy to work with Churchteams. They are always willing to take the time to explain how the software works, and they have a reason why it is the way it is that is focused on the heart of shepherding the church. Such a refreshing change!

Pros

My staff has found Churchteams very easy to use and is so much more comfortable with this software compared to our old church management system. Churchteams deals with everything as a group, and it makes it so easy to set up any kind of group. Running reports is also so much less intimidating and the staff is willing to do it after being shown once. That is so freeing for my job!

Cons

Exports to excel are lacking from some views. We can copy and paste the information, but reports do not have an export to excel option, and that is what my staff is already in the habit of using. I have to explain once a week that they can copy and paste the data out of the view they are looking at if they want to edit a spreadsheet.

Reasons for choosing Churchteams

I asked 12 other churches what they used and why, and I asked if they liked it. All the answers I got were along the lines of "We use X. It works, but it isn't great" except for 1. "We use Churchteams, and it is fantastic!" My friend was enthusiastic about using Churchteams and she is not a techie person, but she was talking about all the options she had and how Churchteams took their ideas and implemented what they needed.

Reasons for switching to Churchteams

Shelby was hard to use! My staff needed help with every little task, and it was always confusing why things didn't work.

Response from ChurchTeams

Thanks Arlona. I love that your choice was based on a friend who genuinely loves CT. Raving fans who share with others.

Love the reports for our Connect (Small) Groups

The support has been excellent. We only use it for our Connect (Small) Groups, but it is the best software we can find for that.

Pros

We want our Connect (Small) Groups to have overseers, and those overseers need to be able to see the Groups meeting reports. We also really appreciate the monthly group report. These tools are extremely useful to us.

Cons

The software could be more visually appealing to the outside user (our congregants looking for a group).

Response from ChurchTeams

Thank you for doing this review for us. Interesting that you mentioned UI. We are just starting a project to upgrade that significantly in the next months. And we are fantastic for everything related to your people data in one place.

Responsive and always growing in functionality

I love the CT team and the way they honestly try to help us do more ministry!

Pros

I love that the team is always willing to help you figure out how to do something if you don't know. If the software can't do it, they take suggestions and implement many of them pretty quickly. I love the CT team!

Cons

The only thing I wish CT would do that they don't do is offer offline options. Meaning there is no local saving of data for when you don't have access to internet. Of course this is not as big of an issue today as it would have been 5-10 years ago, so I recognize this as probably just an outdated mindset.

Reasons for choosing Churchteams

Better pricing and opportunities for growth.

Reasons for switching to Churchteams

Ease of use and functionality are WAY better with CT

Response from ChurchTeams

Thank you, Benjamin. We're in this together to serve the Lord first and foremost!
