You wouldn’t build a house with a spatula nor would you flip an egg with a hammer. I suppose you could but can you imagine the result?

The type and quality of tools you use determine the type and quality of what you build. It’s true with making disciples and building teams as well. As a pastor my goal was to equip and then release people into ministry. I had great equipping tools – curriculum, books, training, teachers, mentors, podcasts, etc. But, I didn’t have very good releasing tools to stay connected with and coach people in the process of doing ministry. Then the Internet came along and with it a new way of doing things.

It is our feeling that Information Systems in a church need to follow not lead ministry. The architecture of most church management systems is individual and security focused. Churchteams was built with a team and accessibility architecture. This is very different and it makes a difference in the type and quality of the ministry you build. We’ve experimented with this concept for ten years. We’ve learned much and the results are astonishing.

Welcome to the 2010s!
