Our church had an issue of continuity between our church events and follow through in contact. We searched through the web and could only find total church management solutions that did not focus squarely on evangelism. This being as such we needed to find a way to keep contact with our prospects and a record of who attended what to ensure the efficacy of our program.

A member of our evangelism board career was in sales and mentioned a CRM system they used that focused on keeping the record of their prospects, the contact had with them and future appointments. This sounded perfect for our needs however, the Sales CRMs were very expensive and had many features which were not needed.

It was clear at this point that customization was needed and we chose to use an open source platform to meet our needs. Once customized the Shepherd's Helper Prospect Manager was created to fully suit our needs. It allowed us to import our excel list of current prospects. Create and send templated regular mail & emails merged with our prospect list to simplify our newsletters. Additionally, it gave us an easy way of keeping consistent contact with our prospects. We uploaded our list, designated team members to each prospect and set bi-monthly reminders to contact the unchurched prospect. After that, a detailed activity list was kept in the same program to ensure that we could easily see the past contacts. This has benefited our program immensely.

Due to our success with this we have put it online, currently for free, sponsored by add based support. I am not writing this as a spam message, but want to get the message out for this unique program as it meets the needs that have been unaddressed by churches. Please feel free to check it out at shepherdshelper.com. Due to certain restraints in forums I realize that the address may be blocked, if this is the case please go to google and simply type in Shepherd's Helper Prospect manager, and it should pop up in the search results.

Many Blessings,
The Shepherd's Helper Team
