Love them or hate them the Green Bay Packers are unique. How so? Many people don’t realize it but the Packs are the only publicly owned non-profit team in the NFL. In the truest sense they are owned by their fans.
So how does this relate to Church Management Systems? Simple… there’s a new player in town, one that also is a non-profit, and while not technically owned by its fans (only 4 states allow a non-profit to sell shares), views its community of churches as owners. Last year the Spark Development Network completed a four-year journey to release a feature-rich open-source (read: free) Relationship Management System (ChMS) named Rock RMS. While its technology and features are best-of-breed, what really makes it stand out is its vision of openness.
