History

Impact Church of Jacksonville was founded in 1996 and initially had 12 members. The leadership and congregation set a  goal of spreading the word of God across seven cities in Florida, known as the Impact 7 & Beyond Initiatives which generated partnerships with 11 other churches. Today, Impact Church of Jacksonville has over 3,000 weekly attendees.

Challenge

As the Impact Church of Jacksonville’s congregation grew, they needed a church management system with a cleaner interface that could save them time so they could focus on their real mission: equipping people to grow in Christ.

That’s when they turned to Realm.

Solution

Having smoother transitions between features and fewer steps to complete tasks made a big difference for Manch and his team.

“The tool is not the focus of the ministry,” says Manch Kersee, Director of Finance. “Because it just works, it shows that Realm’s really helping. Our team can focus on what they’re doing, serving and doing their work and ministry.”

“Realm cut down a lot of time so I could redirect some of my resources,” Manch says. “We weren’t bogged down anymore with doing data entry.”

In addition to having a better user experience for staff as they work individually, Realm has also improved their overall communication and interaction across the team.

“Realm has solved our organizational and cross-departmental communication issues,” Manch says. “The integration of congregant needs, giving records, and small groups has been key. We’re able to consolidate our processing, our management in Realm. Realm has made a big difference in our strategy and how we’re going to expand our ministry.”

With a tool they don’t have to spend time stressing about, the team at Impact Church of Jacksonville has more time and resources they can use to reach their community for Jesus.
