Oh yes, coming soon to your church: ChurchMetrics.com. I know we need another CMS system like we need a hole in the head, but come on… this is LifeChurch.tv! The same guys who brought you YouVersion.com and One Prayer. Why does this excite me? Well…
1. I am not at all happy with our current CMS system, or the one we used before. The main reason is that the user interface is so 90’s, very clunky and there’s a huge learning curve to begin to use it.
2. Back to the user interface. This looks very web 2.0, which means I can probably understand it and begin using it immediately.
3. It’s free.
4. It’s web-based.
5. And lastly it doesn’t seem like it’s the “all things to all people” church application. So that means that it’ll be GREAT at doing a few things – which I like.
When will it come out? Not sure, but I’ll let you know as soon as I know. Until then, keep you eye on their Vimeo page for updated videos.
