WE’VE HELPED MANY CHURCHES JUST LIKE YOU!
“Over the past twenty years, I’ve had the opportunity to oversee ministries and use my technology background to find and use some of the best Church Management Systems. At the end of the day, customer service is key to a good CMS along with a strong product roadmap. It’s important to know where the company is and where they are going with their technology. If you want a company that has innovation and a listening ear for your concerns, use Churchteams. You won’t be disappointed.”
Pastor Wallace Prude, M.Div.
Director of Information Systems The House of Hope Atlanta
“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.”

STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?
Most questions are addressed in the setup and support section of Churchteams and elsewhere on our helpdesk. Here are frequent questions we get from people who are considering a 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. We are confident that our excellent software and support is enough to earn and keep your business.
Yes! Call, text or email any time. 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 to 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. It’s 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.
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
