Is technology a friend or foe of your church? Throughout the years the church has slowly adapted to living a fast-paced life but change has never been welcomed with open arms. And now that technology has seeped into almost every area of our lives, it has become impossible to avoid. Which begs the question, how do you get members to embrace it, especially Church Management Software?
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.
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:
Traditionally ChMS systems were installed on servers or run on desktops. Today an increasing number of churches and ministry organizations are choosing to migrate to Cloud-based software.
Until recently installed systems have been more cost-effective for churches that have used a system for a decade or longer but currently this solution can no longer keep up with the increased data load. More congregations are choosing a web-based software due to its accessibility and compatibility with most devices.
Let’s take a closer look.

For most churches, you don’t have the staff, volunteer base, or financial bandwidth to hire support for promotions or marketing.
