- Track all the usual demographic information for every person: birth date, marital status, race, gender, family position, company, title, etc.
- Track additional demographics helpful for targeting and assessing whether the church is hitting their target: educational level, occupational industry, age group, seeker status, background prior to membership, new resident in the area, baptism occurred at this church or another, marketing method used to attract to the church, etc.
- Record each person’s involvement (and complete history of involvement) in small groups, ministry teams, and class attendance.
- Track follow up requests made to the staff on welcome cards from the previous Sunday. For example, if someone requests a hospital visit, flowers, meals, answers to questions, etc., these can be logged and automatically delivered to the appropriate staff.

- Send personalized letters using mail merge linked to MS Word.
- Track each person’s status as they move through your church’s disciple-development process beginning with their first visit to the church through step 1, step 2, etc., and then annually as they renew their membership.
- Encourage each person to keep growing using automated email and form letters to congratulate them on their commitments and invite them to the next level of commitment. (Sample letters and emails are included with the program for easy customization.)
