At Resurrection we have officially kicked off the transition for the next generation church management software for us – Arena. A cutover date to the new system is scheduled in mid May. Ian Beyer, network administrator at Resurrection, shared a great idea with me related to this transition.
What if Arena were implemented at the conference level?
Some potential positive outcomes of this becoming a reality…
- Would ease transitions for pastors in and out of appointments
- Filling out year end reports would disappear as it would dynamically be collected
- Data on clergy would aid in appointment making
- Effectiveness of Arena available for all churches regardless of size
What do you think? Would shared church management software for all congregations of the annual conference increase effectiveness? What would be the starting point for implementation?
Thanks again to Ian for sharing this idea!
