When the Streams Church organization consisted of just three pastors working mostly out of their homes, the team was able to get by using email. But as the team grew, adding part-time administrative staff and church volunteers, they needed a simpler and more centralized platform to stay connected, coordinate programs and events, and get their work done.
“When you’re planning a church event, and you’ve got half a dozen people working on it together, all operating out of different locations, it’s easy for an email communication to get missed or for someone to be left off of that thread who really needed to see it,” says Allen Keys, Executive Pastor for Streams Church.
“When our team began growing, and different teams began forming to manage our various missions, outreach programs, and events, we realized we needed a better system for collaborating and working together,” Allen explains. “Simple, centralized communication for all of our various church projects was especially important for us because none of us have office space at the church itself, so we’re all working remotely.”
