How do people login to Churchteams?

Besides responsive access from your website, social, email, and texts, there are 4 login link options depending on the purpose: Staff, Individual Giving & Activity, Check-in, Directory.

Responsive access is a term we use to refer to giving people access to the database from places that are familiar and convenient to them without them having to download anything or create an account.  It takes advantage of completely secure, software intelligence features.  Here are some examples:

  1. Registrations linked to your website, social, emails or texts allow people to register for everything from preparing to visit, fill out a connection card, join a group or event, or complete a form of any type.  When a form is completed, the software searches the database to find a match or adds them as a new contact.
  2. Automated email or text reminders are sent to members, group leaders, and ministry volunteers with custom links to update their information, complete a group report, or respond to a serving opportunity.  Because emails and texts are initiated from within the system, it creates and sends unique links for the person and purpose.
  3. Text-to-Church allows anyone to text an amount to give and keywords to register for anything, check-in, access their personal giving and activity pages, and much more.  When their text reaches the database, the system recognizes who the request is coming from and responds essentially logging them in by their phone number.

Learning to use these features effectively flattens the learning curve to nothing for your guests, members, leaders, and volunteers.  All they have to do to respond is click a link or send a text.  This ease of use significantly increases response rates.

But we still provide the following options for different people to login depending on their purpose and access needs.


Staff - This is the primary way your staff and highest level volunteers who coach multiple groups access the software.  Be sure to save this link on your computer and phone's home screen for quick access.  You can find the link under:

Settings > User Accounts > Blue section.

Individual Giving & Activity - This link requires a person to enter their email address and a personal password that they've set up to login to access their giving and other activity in the database.  Online giving is required.  Have people save this link on their computer or phone home screen for quick access.  As the title suggests, this is the link you'll give people to save as their Churchteams App.  Find it here:
