“…From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” Luke 12:48, NIV Bible Most churches and ministries, regardless of size, are faced with the same challenges – reaching out to visitors, energizing staff and membership, organizing and optimizing limited resources and spreading the word to the greatest number of people possible. However, these problems are magnified when you are part of a church with a large congregation. Often blessed with many resources, churches at this size need to also be particularly good at optimizing those resources and organizing their people to get the most out of their ministry and serve their community. It’s with churches like this in mind that Shelby Systems developed our Arena organizational management software. Arena takes the functionality of our ShelbyNext suite to a higher level allowing for the maximum amount of flexibility. For example, Arena can be cloud-hosted or self-hosted. Churches with dedicated IT personnel will get the most of out of the software as it will allow them to create custom reports for membership and financial data in whatever way works best for them. Once configured, Arena makes tracking large amounts of data on people across a large organization a snap. So, if your ministry is blessed with many resources, let us help you make the most out of those resources. Your church and your community will reap the benefits.
