If You’re A Pastor…

You probably thought that eAdventist was just for clerks. That is where we started but we’ve been growing eAdventist to help pastors and churches, too. Here’s a quick summary of several new tools designed specifically to help you.

Tags

Create “tags” to track small groups, spiritual gifts, Bible study requests, visitation lists and other groups in a way that’s fast and flexible. Use your tags to select people, create mailing labels, or send email messages.

Photos

Membership records come to life when you add photos of individual members and entire families. Use family photos to create a pictorial church directory.

Church Directory

In addition to the family pictures, eAdventist makes it easy to print a current, up-to-date directory whenever you need one. Include mobile phone numbers and email addresses for the adults, if you choose to.

Attendance

Capture a valuable indicator of church health and growth by recording attendance. eAdventist makes it easy to start by recording attendance counts for each service or event.

Mailing Lists

Create a church mailing list (email, that is) and use it to send your church newsletter, pastor’s letter, small group invitations, church calendar or announcements. Get your message out quickly and avoid spam folders.

Member Maps

We just added “People Map” (in the Explore section) to help you create a map of members. Use it to plan visitation, outreach events and more.

Graphs

The Explore section (under Reports) offers charts and graphs of members and baptism – by gender, by age. Explore the makeup of your church now and through time.

Pastor Notes

Now you can use eAdventist to record pastoral notes that are available to the pastoral staff – and only the pastoral staff – in your church. Track visits, needs and background that will help you serve your members safely and confidentially.

If you would like to know more about any of these features, we’ll be happy to help. Email us at help@eadventist.net.

  1. Do the Pastor Notes stay with the person when they are transferred so that the Pastor(s) at the next Church can see them?

    • No, when a member transfers, the notes from their old church will not be visible to the pastor of their new church. This is to prevent the notes from becoming or being perceived as a “blacklist”.
