CHURCH MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE YOUR WAY
Watch the video above to learn how Churchteams can make your life easier.
“ALL YOUR PEOPLE DATA IN ONE PLACE!
Is it even possible?”
SOFTWARE PEOPLE ACTUALLY USE
You may have promoted software applications heavily to your church trying to get them to create an account or download something. And 20% maybe even 40 or 50% did. But that’s a long way from 100% and as a result you know your data just isn’t that good. You don’t trust it because people aren’t accessing it consistently.
We understand. We learned the hard way. If the output you want from your data exceeds your input, then your upkeep of it becomes your downfall. So, input is as an important focus for software development as output.
We built our reputation as a small group software by solving the data input problem. The key? Go where your people already are. Have them do what they already do. Get into the stream of their normal software user-experience. Don’t ask them to do anything different than they already know. We call it responsive access and Text-To-Church.
What If You Built Your Own Church Management Software?
You would start with a white board and talk about your church vision, strategy, structure and the feedback you need. Then the problems you have to solve to get there and how technology can help.
That’s what we did and still do!
The result is that we don’t look like what you may already know and expect from Church Management Software. Think of the phone in your pocket. Is it what you thought a phone looked like in 2005?
We combine best ministry practices with latest technology to rediscover and refine the solutions to your real problems. We (co-founders) were a pastor for 18 years and a software architect for one of the most influential data management companies in the world.
So, we have the unique experience and team to pull this off. But more than that we listen to our pastor and admin friends so that we can constantly learn together how to excel at serving Jesus still more.

“Churchteams is the most innovative, effective, affordable church management software on the market. Their team is constantly updating and adding features that serve our church well – like their industry leading text-to-check for our Kids’ ministry. Their approach to data management allows me incredible flexibility to get specific data I need to measure ministry progress. With Churchteams it feels like we’ve added our own internal database team: they respond quickly, welcome our input, and help us problem solve. We’ve been with them for ten years and plan to be with them far into the future.”
West Ridge Community Church, Elgin IL
“Churchteam’s revolutionary Text-to-Church feature has been a total game changer. It’s fast, it’s easy, and it’s on demand – no websites to navigate, no emails to find, no texts to scroll. It has drastically reduced check-in times and greatly simplified group registrations. Best of all it’s backed by industry-leading customer support. If your ministry is not utilizing this new, powerful tool, you are missing out.”

Thanks for taking the time to read this letter and watch the introduction video.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?
Most questions are addressed in the setup and support section of Churchteams and elsewhere on our helpdesk. Here are the typical questions we get from people who are considering Churchteams free trial
No. You are subscribing for a service, not purchasing a product. The benefit of that is that you have the latest features, even minor tweaks, the minute they are released. This access and ease of use is the beauty of web-based software!
Absolutely! Protecting your personal information through online security is an absolute priority. We use Extended Validation SSL/TLS certificates and encryption which protects everyone accessing Churchteams. There are different security levels in the application you can manage and customize for limiting accessibility of personal and group data according to responsibility of individuals within your church. We have a bunch more information if you really want to geek out – Security Info.
Churchteams does not require a contract. The setup fee helps cover initial expenses related to sales and on-boarding support. We are confident that our excellent software and support is enough to earn and keep your business.
Call, text or email anytime. We even monitor these on nights and weekends in case of emergencies! Matthew 7:12, the Golden Rule, has always steered our #1 priority of excellent service. Our support team is made up of people just like you, pastors and admins who’ve used Churchteams while on church staff. We get it.
We really do want what’s best for you. If there is another software that better serves your needs, we will show you how and even help you export your information into CSV files that can be used anywhere. No penalty. Just an example of our Matthew 7:12 philosophy.
No. Churchteams is completely web-based. Even label printers for check-in won’t require special software. Churchteams is optimized for use on any device. Much easier than downloading an app with the additional benefit of retaining full functionality of the software and consistency across all devices and computers!
Your data is your data. Marketing companies would love access to the data in your church database, especially if it were centralized as data owned by a single company. Again, Matthew 7:12, we would never want anyone else owning or accessing our church data and we are pretty sure you wouldn’t either.
During the setup process, we have documentation that helps you export your data from whatever data source(s) you have. You then send us those CSV/Excel files and we import them for you – often within a day or two depending on volume and complexity of your data. We’ve developed tools to help clean up and merge data from different sources so that you can finally get all your people data in one place!
We built export options right into our reporting system so that you can easily export or backup your data yourself anytime you want with just a few clicks. We’ll be glad to show you how. Of course we do daily and hourly system backups to protect all of your information as well.
We understand that we aren’t for everyone. We ask you to take advantage of our on-boarding and training so that you can give the software an honest try. We’ll do everything we can to help you. But, if you are not satisfied, even after a few months, just email, call or text us and we will be glad to help you export your data and close your account. If you’ve paid for six months or a year, we’ll even refund any unused quarters. You simply cannot lose.
Great! Just import the people that relate to that feature into Churchteams. Even though you have access to all the features, you don’t have to use them. Most churches will have less than 2,000 people for any one feature, so will be able to take advantage of the lowest level pricing which is comparable to the price of most other system’s modules or single feature products anyway.
I’m a church plant or really small church, do you have a program to support or help us?
You guys, this is about ministry first and foremost. If you feel like Churchteams is the tool for you, but you just can’t afford it, send us an email or give us a call/text and we’ll talk. firstname.lastname@example.org – (817) 405-9750.
