Met Storch, Need Words

August 11, 2005 by

This past weekend I had the privilege of spending some time with Terry Storch from Fellowship Church in Dallas, Texas. If you know of Terry, you know he has just gone through a massive transition from being the church’s chief technology officer and director of, to now being the lead pastor for one of Fellowship’s nearby locations.

After meeting with Terry and attending a service, I was nearly speechless. Not only was I thrilled by what Fellowship has to offer the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex, I was equally encouraged that they don’t let it stop there. As do most churches of this size, Fellowship doesn’t let their knowledge stop with them. They share it with other churches who can benefit.

For example, FellowshipOne, their contact management system is a must for every church that is serious about reaching more people for Christ. Seeing this product in action was worth my visit. If every church had this, I wouldn’t have to write entries like this or this anymore.

Am I suggesting that all churches follow the lead or template of a mega-church? Please don’t. We have enough copycats as it is. I am suggesting we tap into resources and infrastructures that are working, and make them work for us.

    I’m glad you had to chance to hang with one of the best leaders I know. I would have love to have met you while you were at church, as it’s where my family and I attend and volunteer.
    I agree, FellowshipOne is the best CRM tool I’ve seen. I say that after working on staff at three churches where we’ve used ACS and Shelby. Both are OK, but FC1 is greatness.
