Can software really help you pastor better? You betcha!
Recently, I got a call from a pastoral care coordinator at church in Kentucky. She was looking for a software solution to keep an up-to-date list of her congregation, have a simple way to capture care opportunities, have a single place to track everything related to care opportunities and have a simple way to assign the care opportunities for follow-up. I knew Community Center provided about 60% of this and that by working with her and using my business background to ensure that there was a complete 360 from intake to completion, we could provide 100%.
As we were designing our tools to help simplify pastoral care, we discovered that pastors want at least three basic things when managing pastoral care in their congregations: Always Remember, Be Informed, Ensure Delivery of Care.
Pastoral care is deeply integrated into Community Center to help simplify congregant care and ensure delivery of needed pastoral care by leveraging Community Center's ability to create tasks, schedule notifications and create living profiles. This happens with ease because Community Center was designed by pastors to help you manage the details, so you are free to do what you do best, love your congregation.
