ChurchSuite's Address Book module includes a great interface that you can deploy on your church's information desk to professionally, quickly and accurately gather newcomer contact details, recording them straight into your Address Book module. Now it's even easier to begin your newcomer integration processes and welcome people into your church community. No more having to decipher handwriting and manually key in visitor connect cards on a Monday morning!
Connect is designed for your church's Information Desk, allowing newcomers to submit their contact details quickly and easily. By enabling 'edit' mode, your existing church members can securely search for and update their personal contacts details too.
Extend a great first impression to newcomers with a connect experience that's styled to suit your church's existing branding and colour palette. Add a custom welcome message written in language appropriate to your church setting.
Create custom fields in ChurchSuite that let you gather details from newcomers in Connect that there aren't already dedicated fields for. Then select which of those custom fields show in Connect.
Gather newcomer details for the whole family without having to re-enter family contact details. Add spouses, partners and children quickly and easily; including that all-important medical info needed by your children's group leaders.
Begin newcomer integration more quickly by creating custom Areas of Interest, and then alert the related ministry overseers for each area selected. Add new contacts into your newcomer Flows based on the interest areas they choose.
Auto-assign Key Dates and Tags to newcomers at the time they first connect with your church. For example you might add new contacts to a 'newcomer dinner invite' Tag, or record a Key Date for the date they first connect with you.
Set a custom 'success' message to thank newcomers for connecting with your church. Then send them an automated welcome email; perhaps a message from one of the pastors or information about your church and their next steps.
Notes are automatically added to each newcomer's contact profile. It's easy for the whole team to keep on top of those who are visiting and connecting with your church, ensuring people are followed up appropriately.
