Church Social Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Church Social's features:

Henry B.

Increase Member Unity!

2019-01-07

Church Social was put in place for our church (~375 members) two years ago primarily to solve the multiple spreadsheet issue that was our membership statistics.

Pros

Ease of use, security, built as a member directory, excellent mobile interface, powerful reporting, full member download available (not locked in), flexible pricing.

Cons

They are always working hard to add new features based on customer needs. One feature I'm waiting for is to save my custom reports.

Great Product, simple implementation

2019-01-08

The congregation enjoys the easy to navigate photo directory, group email messaging, and 'reminder' functionality, while I really appreciated the depth of access control and data exports as an administrator.

Pros

- Beautiful, easy to navigate members directory - Logical group messaging functionality - Great access and privacy control - Good membership data export functionality

Cons

- None, more or less all our feedback was considered and changes were made in several rounds of updates

Response from Church Social


Hey Matt! I actually added the ability to bulk generate the entire member photo directory just last month. You can find this in the "Members" section, under the "Download" dropdown. You can choose either a full page (letter) version, or an A5 version. Hope that helps!

Great software!

2019-01-07

My experiences with Church Social has been great. As an Administrator, I have challenges getting my fellow congregants to use this program to it's full capacity. It's just a matter of user confidence, and getting people to buy into a new way of learning things.

Pros

This is far more accurate then having info stored on a single user data base.

Cons

I use to have more control over the manipulations of my database, getting it to accumulate the totals/reports I need from time to time, but CSR is eager to listen to any suggestions I has and helped me to get whenever I need in a timely fashion!

A Valuable Tool for Church Administrators and Congregations Alike

2019-01-08

They are great to work with. Always willing to consider suggestions.

Pros

Put all the membership data in one place; easy to update; easy to access and manipulate.

Cons

There were no real cons; it just took some time for the congregation to get on board and comfortable using this software. Only because it was different that what had been done in the past.

Community enhancing software!

2019-01-17

In addition the church membership data is well organized and accessible keeping everyone from church leaders to administrators happy!

Pros

Church Social is a visually attractive, user friendly, community enhancing church membership software!

Cons

Using this software since it was first developed has given me a great appreciation for the work done by the Church Social team in dealing with any "cons" that may have come up over the years. They have continually looked at ways to improve the software - so much so that I can't think of any cons!

Great Church Management Software

2019-01-07

The customer support is fantastic and we are so happy to have this as part of our church life. :D

Pros

The photo directory and email lists are what drew us to this software in the first place. The added features like schedule reminders and ward lists are also fantastic features too.

Cons

We are eagerly waiting for some features, like the uploading of schedules and some reporting features to be added.

Best Church Management Software System

2019-01-07

We use the member maps to analyze where our members live as we are a fast growing church, the member statistics are great for demographic analysis.

Pros

The pictures of members and activities allows new members to quickly feel home.

Cons

In using Church Social, we see the potential. We are asking more and more functionality, which is always developed, if it makes sense. We would like it "tomorrow"... which we realize is not realistic :-)

Church Social has changed our church!

2019-01-07

Pros

Importing the data was very easy and members adopted it very quickly, now we can't imagine church life without it!

Cons

What did I like least? It's hard to say... Maybe early on in the product's life there were a few minor little nuances for administrators to get used to in navigating the product but nothing I can even remember.

Great App for connecting in the Church

2019-02-19

Church directory info and photos easily updated by the members so the info can always be current unlike a printed directory Uploading files for use by the congregation means less printing, the member can always find the file unlike papers stuffed in a drawer. It is a great tool for our congregation and is used daily (or more often) by most members

Pros

Great way to connect with members of the congregation through email messages to individuals, groups, or everyone Detailed member info great for office bearers Able to make worship services (Audio only or Video) available to members or share them with the public via our website which is linked with Church Social Nice church directory The Calendar is a great feature where groups and individuals can post dates for meetings, Bible studies and other important events. Also listed are birthdays and anniversaries.

Cons

It is a minor detail but when sending messages there isn't options for the font used. There is only one font, no ability to change font size, bold or underline. Not a big deal but would be a nice touch if available.
