Data Export & Data Integrations

Volunteer Mobilization Program Data Export/Import

We designed to share its assessment data with Church Management Software Solutions (ChMS). Most Church Management Software Solutions (ChMS) provide a data import function and accept CSV or XML data formats. Church Management Solutions (ChMS) are always refining their software. As a result, we cannot guarantee that your ChMS version will accept our report data. However, if your ChMS offers a data import feature PLUS allows for the creation of custom fields, then there should not be any issues. Note: If your ChMS already has fields for personality, gifts, leadership style, and skills, then there is no need to create custom fields for our Volunteer Mobilization Program data.

NextSteps Disciple-Making Program Data Export/Import

Few ChMS systems are designed to track spiritual growth. As a result, to import the NextSteps Discipleship data, you will likely need to create two custom fields: One for “Maturity Level“, and the second for “Felt-Need“. Please keep in mind that NextSteps data is constantly changing even as your people’s faith grows, stagnates, or declines. Likewise, their Felt-Needs change as often as do the life’s circumstances. This is why we recommend that you conduct an export/import of NextSteps data into your ChMS at least once a month.

Automated Data Integration Options

We currently provide automated data integration with Church Community Builder (CCB) and with Planning Center Online (PCO). If you own or represent a ChMS and would like to partner with so that our essential information automatically populates fields within your software, please contact us, or call David A. Posthuma directly at 1 (800) 724-1159, Ext. #2.
