No More Registration Struggles

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

quoteBefore Ministry Sync, we really struggled with registration.

Our event is normally three nights, and in 2016 it was four! Registration was a bit of a nightmare with a bazillion phone calls and lots of room for human error. Supporters we were trying to honor and bless would show up and we didn’t have seats for them. We would scramble around looking unprofessional and unprepared. It was not good.

With Ministry Sync and online registration, guests register themselves!

They have all the info right there in an email that they can save on their device. We got many fewer phone calls and as our event has grown, it has been virtually seamless to add nights and more guests!

The Ministry Sync AttendEasy platform is one of a kind. Not only is it spectacular, it’s user-friendly! Our guests love it.

The platform is awesome, and the Ministry Sync team is even better. The customer service is top-notch. They address problems right then! No waiting or stress. We have been very pleased with Ministry Sync and sincerely congratulate them on ten years serving the Lord. You rock!

Thank you for sharing your experience, Jo Lisa! Ministry Sync is here to make events easy. Through AttendEasy (for banquets, galas, and dinners) and FundEasy (for walks, runs, and campaigns), the registration process is simplified so it is user-friendly for you and your attendees.

If you have a story to share, please let us know! We’d love to hear from you.

Use the Tools, See Results

Monday, May 8th, 2017

quoteEven though we have had Ministry Sync since 2010, we began actively using all the tools associated with Ministry Sync about three years ago.

We started utilizing the ability to send emails for Walk 4 Life, using Live Attendance for our Benefit Dinner, and exporting reports to compare prior years and see how we could improve.

Since then, we have seen an explosion in our fundraising efforts.

In 2013, our Walk 4 Life brought in $37,000. In 2016, our Walk grossed over $85,000.

I think that part of that growth is attributed to exploring all the tools that Ministry Sync offers. This growth has enabled us to serve 50% more women and expand our clinic. Praise God!

And the Winner of the Free Event is…

To celebrate our 10th Anniversary, we asked our customers to share with us how Ministry Sync has worked in their ministries for their chance to win a free event. We were blessed to have many entries to go through. Our staff voted.

Here’s the winning story:
quote

I have been working in the pregnancy center ministry for 13 years now, and for 11 of those years have been involved in the planning of fundraising events–banquets and Walks for Life–in two different centers, across two states.  In my early years, we did not use Ministry Sync; we did things the “old fashioned” way–handwritten sign-up sheets, excel spreadsheets, etc.  Oy!  The work it took to keep track of everything, especially as the events grew. 

Then, a couple of years later, when I transitioned to a new center in a new state, I had the opportunity to use Ministry Sync for our banquet for the first time.  And from that point on, I knew I would never go back!!

Using Ministry Sync for our event revolutionized the way we could manage the data.  I found it completely user-friendly and effective for the task. I was blown away!  I couldn’t believe that this tool was out there while I was creating my color-coded excel spreadsheets, lol!  So now I have been using Ministry Sync for about eight years, and have grown with them as they have grown, adding new features and of course, the Walk for Life program.  It’s all been great.

Anyone in this area of ministry knows that our fundraisers are critical to the success of our mission.  To reach the women and men that we serve, to share the gospel and to save lives, it takes funding, and our events accomplish much of that.  So successful events keep our ministries going and help them to grow in the Lord’s work.  But more than that, using Ministry Sync enables us to give more attention to the things that matter most.  Because the programs streamline the process, less time is needed to manage data and events, allowing more time to be directed to serving the hearts and lives of those God brings to our doors.

I am thankful for Ministry Sync.  They have been wonderful to work with all these years.  They are not just friendly and helpful, they are like family to the ministry.  They are a part of what we do.
