How ChMS Helps You Identify, Track & Communicate to Inactive Church Members

“Look at it this way. If someone has a hundred sheep and one of them wanders off, doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine and go after the one? And if he finds it, doesn’t he make far more over it than over the ninety-nine who stay put? Your Father in heaven feels the same way. He doesn’t want to lose even one of these simple believers.” - Matthew 18:12

If this is the heart of the Father Himself then how much more should we not make it our mission to look after church members who we may not have seen recently at church? At times it may mean "going after" the inactive church member to check in and see how they are really doing.


5 Ways Technology Speeds Up Church Growth


As a leader, pastor or elder your main motivation for growth in the church should be the ability to equip more people for the work of ministry and building up the body of Christ in all the earth. Thanks to technology it has become much easier to access hard-to-reach people and places for the Gospel which in turn has significantly impacted the rate at which churches grow. 

Let’s take a look at how Church Management Software can help accelerate growth in the church.

Growing Church Small Groups with The Help of ChMS Technology

I remember when I first arrived at my church. I knew no one, I could hardly find my way around town, and I was desperately in need of fellowship. How did I find the group of people I’ve come to love and cherish, and now call my family? The answer is small groups.

It’s here where the bonding happens. A safe place where we can show our true colors and provide a platform for discipleship and growth in the church. The good news is that you don’t have to initiate it on your own – here are 7 ways in which church management software can help you establish small groups:


Pastoral Care Made Easy With ChMS

“Take care and be on guard for yourselves and for the whole flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you as overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He bought with His own blood.” – Acts 20:28

As a shepherd you have been entrusted to take care of God’s people – to tend, feed and guide them. But many times you’re so busy taking care of the flock that you neglect to take care of yourself. This can lead to burnout, and inevitably some people WILL fall through the cracks. 

So how can you take care of yourself AND ensure that not one sheep gets left behind?


What to Consider when Choosing a Child Check-in System for Your Church

Children’s safety is not something you can compromise on. Kids today are exposed to a world of danger and should be protected at all costs. Yes, even at church - or rather especially at church.

It is your job as a leader to step up security measures when it comes to your youth and children. And one way you can do this is by having a child check-in system. But how do you know which software will go the extra mile in keeping your bundles of joy safe?

Here’s what you should consider before purchasing a child check-in system


How ChMS Can Help Equip Your Church for Ministry

As a church it is our job to ensure that members are equipped to go out and advance the kingdom of God with power. An army general won’t send his people into battle without providing them with a powerful arsenal, and neither should you.

And the best way you can ensure that your people are ready for the fight is through church management software.

Let’s see how ChMS can help equip your members more efficiently.


Volunteer Management Simplified by ChMS

Think of the largest event your congregation has ever hosted… Okay, now remove all your volunteers from that picture. Would it still have been a raging success? Probably not. Your volunteers’ contribution is invaluable in helping you fulfil your church’s mission.

With the latest technology at the tips of your fingers you no longer have an excuse for miscommunication. With such a valuable workforce offering up their time and skills to serve, it is essential that you return the favor by providing an organized and enjoyable work environment for volunteers. 


How Technology has Changed the Church

For years the church has been known to shy away from technology. Without the right tools and resources churches and ministry organizations can struggle.

However, in more recent times the church has been leveraging technology because of its great benefits in spreading the Gospel more efficiently.

But how has technology changed the church?

Let’s have a look at some statistics:
