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.

    This software is great for managing volunteers and contributions for our church. The assignment features are super easy to use and to give people new assignments.

    Cons

    We were having issues with mailing but a recent update for mail merge fixed the issue and now we can send more personalized emails!

    Great team management, easy of use and worth it to keep track of where people are serving. I think these types of programs help take church systems to the next level and are greatly needed.

    Pros

    Functions in many many ways like planning centre but for much less of a cost.

    Fairly easy program to use once you deal with the initial set up.

    Great way to organize your teams / program volunteers, to see who is serving, where and when with ease.

    Easy to mass communicate for events / important updates and announcements.

    For reports and financial tracking this is a great program.

    Cons

    Like any people management program the program has a learning curve. Nothing about it is overly complicated but it will take a bit of time to really understand the program and utilize it well. If you want to get the most out of this program it is worth spending the time and even having 2-3 people dedicated to helping others use the program.

    Many not as extensive a program as Planning Center (but again much more affordable)

    Pros

    It is useful for allowing several users within a large church to communicate with their own teams via cellphone or email. It does get the job done and the latest update made signing in a bit easier. So, it does appear that they are responsive to feedback.

    Cons

    I don't have another system to compare this one with but I found this system hard to use myself. I would try to set up a template so that I wouldn't have to keep retyping introductions to new members. Somehow, it didn't always save and I would have to redo it. I think that someone else had access to change what I had written maybe, so each time different people would type up a template it would save over what the previous user wrote. The problem I have with that is we all had our own logins and supposedly separate groups so this shouldn't happen. I also had a hard time adding or removing people from the email lists. I also found it hard to use update my password. It ended up saving more than one and it was hit or miss on which one it wanted to me sigh in with.

    I use it to organize our women's group meetings, socials etc. We do recaps for the ladies that couldn't make it to church or are bedridden

    Cons

    Not everyone is tech savvy so participation is lower than I would like but it makes me cater the ministry to the ladies individual needs.

    I have little time using the application and still do not find anything negative, I could say that sometimes it is not so intuitive for learning.

    Robust tool for keeping track of all the age groups at church. Loving the almighty is the easy part, keeping all of his followers organized is where is gets tricky. Church teams makes it simple to stay in touch and keep everyone on the same page from kids to the older generation.

    Cons

    It is a struggle for some that feel it makes worship seem to business like. not a perfect solution for every worshiper but covers the majority and then some.

    Event registrations were extremely easy, online giving has saved us money in banking fees, check-in's have been quick and easy and are a great feature for tracking attendance in our children and youth ministries.

    Pros

    We saved money by switching over to Church Teams for online giving! We found out that we'd be saving 40% in banking and processing fees if we switched to Church Teams! So we did!

    Cons

    There are some minor features that I wish were available, like generating a summary report for the online giving deposit reconciliation report.

    This does not sound like an assessment at all of our software. We are not an accounting software at all though we do manage contributions and everything related to statements and giving reports. Also, I'm unclear what you mean by user accounts for coordination features.

    Pros

    The notes options at each group level and for individual accounts is an amazing feature!
    The automatic prompts for group meeting reports makes it super easy for leaders to complete weekly reports.
    The report builder features is AMAZING!! Being able to select exactly what you want to see on each report (and save them for one-click use) drastically reduces the amount of time spent compiling data, and frees leaders up to focus on people.
    And on top of all this, the support and development teams are constantly looking for ways to improve the software. They are open to feedback and suggestions and always ready to help when called on!

    Cons

    I honestly can't say there is anything that I would like differently. Since we started using this , they've pushed out so many updates, it's hard to think of things I'd like them to change.

    Solid database and information management for our local church.

    Pros

    The pricing structure is good, based on the size of the church. It's nice to be able to login and find member or attender information quickly, or segment reports based on criteria (e.g., what class a person has taken or not taken). They keep adding functionality over time making it more and more useful. It has come a long way in the 5 years since we started with them and now can handle about everything we would need it to and then some.

    Cons

    The layout and look are a little lacking, but that is superficial.
    I don't like how they call anyone in the system a 'member' when as a church we have 'members' and various other levels of involvement (attenders, etc.).
    Keeping it 'clean' and to a manageable size has not been easy since someone who visited one time will stay in forever unless you remove them. But it's possible we are not handling this the best way.

    Pros

    We are just a couple days away from our biggest event of the year and I just wanted to say that Churchteams has been integral in our registration and follow-up processes. We have been able to coordinate several different teams, run a myriad of reports and even handle registration for 125 guests and 235+ volunteers. Last year we had about three different tools and a variety of spreadsheets to handle things. This year CT has done pretty much all of it.

    Yes our children's ministry and others use it weekly but this has been one of the biggest benefits for me personally in overseeing this event. I've been using CT for 7-8 years total between two churches and it has served me well all along the way. Any time I run into a question I can contact our rep and he gets back to me promptly.

    Cons

    Given the plethora of features some really are not applicable to our situation. Similarly some of the more advanced features take a bit of time to figure out.

    I benefited from having member information all in one database and not logging into or searching multiple places for all the information I need.

    Pros

    Churchteams allows customization of records. If there are details we want to keep track of I can easily (after learning how to do it) create a new field for this record. There are basic/similar records probably every church keeps but this programs allows churches to add their specific needs.

    Cons

    The label creation process is the most difficult thing to figure out. I would like easier access to the explanation as to what each field means. It would be nice to use the label maker for church attendees each week rather than printing off nametags that don't get used but I would like to customize the nametag labels to fit the theme we have at church.

    It is very easy to use, and the videos are a very helpful training tool. There are a ton of cool features...love the new texting features.
    We use it for children's check-in and have never had an issue. Our previous vendor's software crashed all the time on Sunday morning.
    Support is top notch. I love the ability to text for support. to get back to me right away and always make sure they have fixed the issue, no matter what it takes.
    We use it to email our congregation and were able to eliminate an emailing service, thus saving money.
    We use it for online giving and for tracking member contributions and have not had any issues. We had issues with our previous vendor's software all the time.
    We continue to utilize more and more of the features and it is keeping me busy.

    Cons

    The only thing I would suggest is to better organize the Knowledge Base (help center). It is sometimes hard to find information, i.e., the new texting features.
