DALLAS – May 18, 2011 - Fellowship Technologies, a newly acquired business unit of Active Network and the developers of Fellowship One church management software, today announced a technology alliance with Church Multiplication Network (CMN), the church planting department for the Assemblies of God (AG).
CMN selected the Fellowship Technologies’ Fellowship One product to help its new church plants get established and grow their congregations. The web-based system allows a church of any size, from new church plants to multi-site mega churches, to be more effective in ministry, more efficient in administration, and to engage the community. New AG churches can start using the fully-hosted SaaS product for a nominal $250 set-up fee, which includes at no additional cost the first twelve months of access. CMN averages over 275 new church plants per year.
“The technology alliance with Fellowship Technologies is a great fit for CMN and addresses the needs of our national church member base with a feature-rich, attractively priced software option,” said Steve Pike, National Director for the Church Multiplication Network. “The ability to engage a new congregation in a timely and meaningful way, while employing the latest technology to streamline administrative duties is vital to any new church.”
“One of the first challenges churches leaders face in building a church is finding resources, both financial and personnel. We developed Fellowship One with a goal of helping churches of all sizes better leverage their resources and best serve the people in their communities,” said Jeff Hook, general manager of Fellowship Technologies. “Being able to collaborate with church leaders from the very beginning will be a great advantage, as we help them establish and strengthen their churches.”
Fellowship One is the leading 100% web-based church management software used by ministries around the world. The product now supports over 1,800 church and non-profit organizations. Fellowship One and related church management assets were acquired by Active Network from Dallas-basedFellowship Technologies L.P. in February 2011.
