Circuit 6 Information Exchange: Church 360
Administrative staff and pastors from Circuit 6 (Topeka/Lawrence) gathered at St. John’s in Topeka May 25 for an information-sharing meeting on Church 360, a software suite from Concordia Technology Solutions. Presenter Nikki Anderson, a member of Prince of Peace, Topeka, walked the audience through Prince of Peace’s recent change to Church 360, providing an overview and demo of the software. She then fielded questions about ease of use, integration with other programs (e.g., Vanco; Office 365; Google Analytics), and availability of tech support.
Anderson, who has many years of experience in the technology field, also offered some general advice about moving in a new direction.
“Simplify—keep that one word in mind when you’re making a change.”
The May 25 meeting came out of an exploratory discussion held last fall focused on ways that circuit churches can collaborate with each other on common tasks. The administrative group has made tentative plans to meet again, perhaps quarterly or semi-annually.
