Steve Dennie, Communications Director
Churches frequently contact me for advice on technology needs, particularly in regard to the internet. Just yesterday, a church contacted me about their website. They need a new website, but also want some kind of online contact management system which several people could access (they are currently just keeping records in a Word document). Did I have any advice?
Those are basic needs for churches of any size–a website, and tracking people.
Our churches are using a lot of different things in both areas, from do-it-yourself tools to purchasing full-blown systems.
I told that church I would find out what some other UB churches are doing, especially in contact management, and get back with them. That’s what I’m doing now.
How is your website done? And what do you use to track people? Whether or not you’re happy with what you use, I’d like to know.
I’ll compile results and post them on UBCentral.org. I’m sure it’ll be helpful to lots of churches that are asking the same questions this church asked of me.
