001 The Data of Church – For the Love of Data
Play • 43 min

Churches have a wealth of data that other organizations could only dream about–a weekly stream of attendees and donors who also participate in a wide variety of activities around the organization. In this episode, I sit down with Glen Brechner, the Executive Director of Chase Oaks Church in Plano. Chase Oaks is one of the top twenty churches in the DFW metroplex and is in the top 20% of megachurches in the US.

We discuss how they track member participation and donation information, how they consolidate and align data across multiple campuses, and challenges and opportunities they see with data.

Some of the tools they use include:

  • Excel (doesn’t everybody!)
  • Mortarstone
  • Shelby
  • Arena
