Let CongreGATE go to work for you so church leaders can concentrate on more important matters and not waste their valuable time.
CongreGATE allows you to track the overall or per-member attendance at your local church. Input what members are missing, the reason for their absence, run reports with custom variables, view charts and detailed information on each member, and even export all of your attendance data to Excel.
Attendance can easily be taken using CongreGATE Mobile on a smartphone or tablet by one or more people at the same time. Attendance is crucial and continual absences can typically indicate a deeper problem – let CongreGATE help.
CongreGATE can help you and/or automatically generate your monthly duty roster and assign members to various jobs and public worship positions. With full customization, variables, permissions, and instant assignments, reduce the time it takes to create your monthly roster. Your roster can be viewed online, synced to a calendar on your computer or smartphone, or exported and printed as a PDF file.
Church leaders have full control over the assignment process (who’s willing and allowed) and members with permission can update their job preferences. Members can even select block-out dates in which they will be out of town/unavailable to perform duties and receive reminder text and email messages about their upcoming assignments.
Keep track of who’s visiting your local church, why they came, what they’re looking for, and what members can do to help them. If you already collect this information on a “visitor card,” take it to the next level and let CongreGATE allow members to view visitor contact information and even assign follow-up tasks to willing members. Now it’s easy to ensure church member(s) follow-up with local visitors, track and log their communication, and record the number of repeat visits.
Custom email mailing lists can also be created for local and non-local visitors making it easy to send a flyer or announcement to those who may be interested in an upcoming event. Church leaders can also provide notes, custom data fields, and additional details for each visitor. Make your visitors feel welcome and get your members involved.
Track your congregation’s contribution and income, expenses, and budget within CongreGATE. Create an unlimited number of expense categories and view detailed reports and charts. You can export all of your data to Excel to further maximize data manipulation and filtering. Using CongreGATE Mobile, you can quickly add financial information on your smart phone or tablet, making it simple to add data at your assembly.
Members with permission can also view contribution and budget data in the members section of your website. This allows members to stay up-to-date on financial data and help meet the budget.
Whether it be teaching classes, providing meals to the sick, or any other volunteer task, CongreGATE can assist church leaders in finding and choosing members who are willing to help. Members can elect to perform multiple volunteer tasks and leaders can view volunteers by task or by individual members. If the volunteer task is to be scheduled or repeating, CongreGATE can auto-assign willing members to those volunteer positions and even remind them via text message and email of their upcoming task(s). It’s now easy to find people willing to help and easy for members to sign-up to volunteer for any task.
We’ve tried to make CongreGATE cater to your needs and easily mesh with your existing member groups. CongreGATE allows you to create an unlimited number of groups and assign members to one or more of them. The groups appear site-wide and can be used for functions such as mailing lists, notifications, attendance, and more. Members can elect to see what group(s) they belong to and view a listing of everyone in any given member group. Administrators can also create their own custom mailing lists with an unlimited number of email addresses.
With our TruVoice system*, broadcasting church-wide important announcements, updates, and information has never been easier. Simply enter your message via the website and select the member(s) you wish to call. CongreGATE will then call the selected members and read your message to them via text-to-speech synthesis. This is great for service time changes/cancelations, urgent messages, and other last-minute information you need to distribute to your membership.
*Use of the TruVoice system is optional and requires a TruVoice monthly service plan that is not included in our regular monthly service fees.
CongreGATE has a built-in calendar and file sharing area designed for church leaders only; the public and church members cannot access them. This offers your leadership a way to share information, files, appointments and events inside CongreGATE without having to use another provider for privacy concerns. Using CongreGATE’s permission-based access controls, administrators and leaders can also grant access to anyone they choose.
An unlimited number of user accounts can be created for the CongreGATE administration console allowing users to manage and update data. There are an unlimited number of user-defined permission groups you can create, giving you complete control over what each member or administrator is allowed to view and/or edit in the administration console and members section of the website. CongreGATE puts you in complete control of your users and members.
CongreGATE Mobile allows administrators to update your site and view member information right from their smart phone or tablet (internet access required). Update public and member news, take member attendance, update finances, view songs/song requests, calendars, the member directory, duty roster assignments, and more.
