There are numerous companies providing great solutions for church management software. However, your options may be fewer in the future. Recently, Active Network has purchased both FellowshipOne and ConnectionPower, and will be adding some of the unique features of ConnectionPower into FellowshipOne in the near future. I’m thinking that we will see more of this as software companies realize that they can do more combined than in competition. This means that choosing a system is even more important now, because you don’t want to pick one that gets left behind (I just had to throw in a little evangelical humor there ;-))
For our church, we’ve been using ConnectionPower for a while now, so this news is a little bittersweet. Even though a better product will be the end result, the system we are currently using is going away. That means that we will have to retrain everyone on a new system. At this point, we’re not sure what we will do. I want to wait a little and see how things work out.
Are you using one of these systems currently? What are your thoughts?
