Faith Visitation Manager

When discussing the Visitation Manager with a ministry leader of Lifeway Christian Resources FAITH Sunday School Evangelism ministry we were told the Sunday School class was the core of the Faith ministry. With this concept in mind we redesigned the Visitation Manager to include the Sunday School class and team concept. These teams do not have to be Sunday School classes, they could be any church ministry group that has an evangelical mission.

One of our patron churches has committees. A letter writing committee and a telephone committee as well as small groups that visit each prospect.

Prospect History

Enter the date of the visit, the team and the team leader. This may not seem like much but each visit record will build a useful picture of the prospect over time. One churches pastor told us a prospect he had visited many times commented that church was not going to let anyone fall through the cracks. This was just after he prayed to Jesus asking for forgiveness and to be saved.

Prospect visit history
In the memo field enter the important information gathered after the visit using the hand written notes from the Detail Sheet.

Attendance

To easily track the attendance of each team member simply enter the date of the last Faith meeting.  Then mark each member who attended.  Use the record marking feature described elsewhere in this manual.  When all are marked click the Update Marked button.  The program will automatically change the Last Date Attended field for each of the marked ministry members.

If the Track Attendance feature is turned on the ministry members shown in red have been absent equal to, or greater than the number of weeks defined in the Church Information window.

Team Building

The Team Builder Wizard is a tool designed to allow a church to easily add and remove ministry members from a team.
 
When a Sunday School class name is added the name is automatically added to the available team name list.


Team builder window

When a ministry member is added to a team that members name is removed from the available list.  A ministry member can only be on one team at one time.  If a team member is to be moved to another team they must first be removed from the current team.  Once removed the member is available to be added to another team.  The design of the program will not allow a ministry member to be on more than one team at one time.

Training Classes

A great part of the FAITH Sunday School Evangelism ministry is teaching the FAITH method of evangelism.  There are a number of discipleship classes starting at the entry level.  As each ministry member graduates from a class his/her ministry record needs to be updated.  See Ministry Member Maintenance for more details.
