Everyone is excited about Apps and Church Management System (ChMS or CMS) companies are no exception.  Churchteams is taking an approach to apps that is a little different than many other organizations.  Rather than spending money developing an app and requiring users to download it, Churchteams has simply designed our normal system to work as a website with something called “responsive design”.  A website with responsive design will display properly on any kind of device and does not need an app to work properly.  At Churchteams we want to continually improve our Church Management System while keeping your costs down.  Taking this approach to provide an app solution allows us to do just that.

Yet, if you’re like most of us you’re thinking, “That’s great an all, but I still want a simple little App icon on my tablet and phone, so logging in to Churchteams is fast and simple!”  Well, we have great news:  YOU CAN HAVE YOUR OWN CHURCHTEAMS “APP” by following the simple instructions below!
