Why is MSP the best 1st Step towards 21st century Solutions?

Churches have a built-in audience with ministry volunteers who usually give the most time and are most willing to help. Ministry Scheduler Pro is an out-of-the-box solution for scheduling and communications. Take advantage of this combination and move ministry scheduling to MSP. Volunteers access cloud-based schedules via the web or using a smartphone app. The church eliminates paper schedules, paper recruitment forms, and a big percentage of the calls and emails to the church secretary about scheduling. With the first successful 21st century Solution in place, your ministry volunteers become your advocates as you begin to move to your 2nd and 3rd solution steps.

When it is difficult or frustrating to volunteer, less people will volunteer. When it takes more time to deal with your schedule as a volunteer than time actually spent volunteering, more volunteers drop out. You can turn these stats around by engaging your volunteers in the scheduling process. A solution like Ministry Scheduler Pro gives you and your volunteers the essential 21st century tools like mobile apps, cloud-based schedules, automatic text message reminders, and more! Your volunteers become more committed, no-shows decrease, and participation increases.
Using just the basic features of Ministry Scheduler Pro will make scheduling faster and easier for the person(s) doing the scheduling and more organized and accurate for your volunteers. It won’t be long before your scheduler(s) and your volunteers are ready for and looking for the features that customize MSP to meet the unique systems and needs of your church.
If the software you currently use to create schedules focuses on creating schedules but then you have to distribute them (paper or email) and then ‘you’ have to keep them updated and volunteers have to keep checking for newer versions or they might be using outdated versions, you need to take it up a notch. (Read Graduate from Spreadsheets).
When you go cloud-based, when you provide mobile apps, when schedules are in real time and volunteers can update their info 24/7 without having to call or email the parish office, then your scheduling process has become a communications tool. This is what we saw when our parish switched to Ministry Scheduler Pro.
People are willing to volunteer their time, but they don’t want to waste time. Don’t make it difficult for them to get the resources and information they need to serve in their ministry. With Ministry Scheduler Pro, readings, music, resources, instructions, and more can be linked directly to assignments and accessed via the app, text messages, online, or email links.
One of the best resources when considering new software is not only a person who is familiar with the software and has used it successfully, but also a person who can understand your scheduling needs and correlate those needs to how the software will work for you. That person is not always a current staff member or volunteer.

At Ministry Solutions Expert, we have the experience and background to help you identify possible solutions and assist you with making the best, most cost-effective choice for your church.

The learning curve to get current staff and ministers onto a new system can create a significant hurdle to the transition. Ministry Solutions Expert can provide whatever level of support you need to get your team through the learning curve and past hurdles.

From a complimentary consultation to setup assistance to ongoing management of your schedules, Ministry Solutions Expert is your link to a successful transition to Ministry Scheduler Pro.

We Offer Free Support

We start with a complimentary consultation to discuss your church and make sure MSP is a good match for you. If and when you make a decision to move forward with MSP, you purchase the software. You’ll receive MSP’s excellent U.S.-based technical support.

From Ministry Solutions Expert you receive free support and guidance on configuring MSP to match your church’s preferences. We do offer services we refer to as “Hands on Keyboard” where we actually set up your scheduling software and input/import your volunteer names, services, and ministries. There is a fee for Hands on Keyboard.

Disclosure: When a church we are working with purchases Ministry Scheduler Pro, we receive compensation from the software company. This is why we are able to provide free support and guidance to churches in configuring their MSP software. There is an additional fee to a church who retains us to do “hands on keyboard” setup of their MSP database.
