ConnectionPower.com Customer Announcement
It is with genuine excitement that I write to all of our ministry partners, friends and customers. I have an historic announcement that I believe will better serve you and all of our churches and make a next-level impact on expanding the Kingdom of God. ConnectionPower.com, after much deliberation and prayer over the past three years, has decided to become a part of The Active Network, Inc., which as many of you may know is a publicly traded company that recently acquired Fellowship Technologies — another leading provider of church management software.
Why has ConnectionPower.com, a ministry-focused company that specializes in church growth, become a part of a secular corporation, you might ask? First, all corporations are secular; there will be no companies in heaven. Second, it is about the people who lead companies and how they serve their customers that really determine the value to the industry. That said, Active Network has made a bold and demonstrative commitment to serve the Church by successfully bringing together two leading church management software companies under its umbrella. Active Network has fully embraced the mission of both companies to serve God's Kingdom. This is reminiscent of the way Harper Collins, a secular corporation, manages Zondervan, a distinctly Christian publishing company that has successfully served the Church marketplace for many years. The Active Network leadership team desires that we continue to be authentically passionate about how we serve our customers, the same as it is in all the markets the company serves.
During my investigative process, it has been a delight to get to know Jeff Hook, the CEO of Fellowship Technologies, and see his heart and vision for how technology can empower churches to better serve people. Jeff is now the general manager of Active Network | Faith and I will be serving under him as the associate general manager. We are both convinced that God has brought us together as a dynamic team to better serve you, your church and God's Kingdom. In the months ahead we will be working together to merge the unique ministry capabilities of ConnectionPower™ products with the Fellowship One™ product portfolio. Eventually this functionality will be rolled out in a new, revolutionary church management product suite branded and delivered by ActiveWorks | Faith.
What does all this mean for you as a ConnectionPower.com customer? Our support to you will continue on as it is currently for the foreseeable future. If you want to continue using our products until the new Active Network | Faith product line is rolled out, we are happy to serve you. ConnectionPower.com will continue to operate, add necessary enhancements, fix any bugs and serve you like we always have and hopefully even better with the support of our new parent company. However, now and over a fairly extended period of time, we will offer our customers the opportunity to move over to Fellowship One. The good news is that for the first year you will be grandfathered in at comparable prices of your ConnectionPower products. I say comparable because there is not always an apples-to-apples comparison of features and functions in different systems. The intent is to not make you bear the burden of this changeover. Based on your specific situation, this may be something you want to do right away, particularly if you are not tied to specific ConnectionPower functionality. Or you may want to wait until the features that you love in ConnectionPower are added to the Fellowship One product line. Eventually there will be a single product suite under ActiveWorks | Faith.
I realize that an announcement of this magnitude can raise a lot of questions. To assist you in this process, Jeff Hook and I will be conducting a joint webinar meeting on July 7th. At that time we will be able to answer questions that you may have. Links to a recording of this webinar will be posted to the home pages of our respective websites so you can listen to it at your convenience. Additionally, both the ConnectionPower.com and Fellowship Technologies website homepages will post a link to an FAQ page on July 5th. As always, you can call our offices and directly ask any questions that you may have.
I want to close this communication by thanking you for the privilege of letting us at ConnectionPower.com serve you and your church over the last nine years. It has been an incredible journey. I am excited to continue to serve you and to bring the kind of unique ministry-empowering products that have been the hallmark of ConnectionPower.com over the years into a much larger and more robust church management suite. I look forward to continuing to serve you with passion for Jesus for many years to come!
God's richest blessings on you and your ministry,
